Daily Devo 20 June
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.— Isaiah 40:31 (AMPC)
From the book Wake Up to the Word – by Joyce Meyer
Waiting for God to do what only He can do is one of the most difficult parts of faith. Our timing and His are usually two completely different things. He promises to never be late, and even says that He’s not slow as humans define slowness (see 2 Peter 3:9), but He’s usually not early, either…which means that many times we have to wait. And since we need to wait, it’s important to wait with a good attitude and trust that God’s time is the right time. Daily Devo 20 June
As you’re waiting on God, expect something good to happen at any moment. That will help you avoid feeling miserable, and to actually enjoy the wait.
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me trust Your timing, even though it feels like things are taking forever. I choose to believe and expect that You’re working, and that something good is coming. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
