Waiting for God’s Time, Part 6

But those who wait on the LORD 
Shall renew their strength; 
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, 
They shall run and not be weary, 
They shall walk and not faint. 
Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)

Waiting times are also times for soaring. God wants us to be like the eagle, not like the creatures who live in tunnels or caves. From the caves we develop a human point of view toward our waiting times—a point of view that feeds cynicism, skepticism, and doubt. From the skies we develop a heavenly point of view—a view that feeds faith, confidence, and praise.

We can fly in our waiting times because our wings are the wings of faith, and the promises of God are the winds that give us lift. We don’t strive to fly; we simply extend our wings of faith, move them in quiet steps of obedience, and allow the winds of God’s promises to send us soaring.
