Wait on the Lord

 

 

 

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”.

Isaiah 40:31

Waiting does not necessarily mean staying in one place, from the above scripture, waiting is an action word. The bible verse says, they “shall renew their strength”… waiting does not get you tired if you take it as a noun, but because it is a verb, after the act, your strength must be renewed. Renewed in this context is not just to refresh one’s strength, but an exchange of a person’s strength; as in this case, the Lord’s strength for the individual waiting upon Him. If ever one is to have his strength renewed, then he must wait upon the Lord and nothing else; “but they…”implies that this principle will only be applicable to those within this context. To rely on God allows you infinite access to His strength.

In waiting, you show that you’ve at least enough trust in whom you are waiting on, as the very act of waiting shows you are expectant and have a significant amount of trust that you will not be disappointed. Waiting entails hoping on, looking up too, expecting. In waiting on the Lord, your strength is changed into His and the spirit of endurance is granted unto you. Because waiting on the Lord isn’t passive; your soul, your mind, your body and in general, your entire being must be put into perspective.

Waiting on the Lord means you are actively involved in the understanding of his Word, which allows him to bless you, as stated in Psalm 37:34.

Waiting on the Lord means you are productive in thinking, which allows Him to teach you His truth, as seen in Psalm 25:5.

Waiting on the Lord means you have accepted a single truth and you’re ready to stand firm in it. This allows answers to your prayers; the process of waiting on the Lord allows you to exercise your godly attributes and qualities. Waiting on the Lord for whatsoever might be your case, means you do not lose faith (as that is when it is acted on the most). It also implies that you exercise the spiritual truth written in scripture as regards that situation and he will never disappoint you nor allow you grow weary or faint.

We live in a generation that wants everything now; instant pleasure, instant gratification and immediate significance. Today’s study scripture is a very powerful one as it goes against human believes and the world’s system. It is a tough concept and that is why the benefits there after fall only on those that wait upon the Lord. If you will be obedient to this truth; you “shall mount up with wings as eagles”; reaching high heights without losing sight and soaring to the greatness of God Himself (Ephesians 2:6),“you shall run, and not be weary”; looking up to Jesus the author and finisher of your faith, in whom you can join at the right hand of God (Hebrews 12:1-2), “and you shall walk, and not faint”; because you’ve received Christ and you are in a good place for an eternal walk (Colossians 2:6).

Are you waiting on the Lord for something? Then you must quit worrying and start living in the truth of God’s words as regards that situation because waiting on the Lord is never passive.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”

The Unchanging Power of the Truth

A Study of Matthew 27:32-61 with a focus on verse 37 (Kjv)

‘… and set up over His head His accusation written, ‘this is Jesus the king of the Jews’…”-37

From our understanding of the Bible, Jewish people did not believe and still do not believe in Jesus, to be the King of the Jews (the Messiah). This was even the accusation labeled against Him as scripture explains it, but why wasn’t the inscription- “This is Jesus who claims to be the king of the Jews”? Surely it couldn’t have been a space problem!

Yes, in so doing they tried to mock Him, but when dealing with the Truth, whether consciously or unconsciously, even your enemies cannot deny it. It is important to note that it would have made more sense if the inscription was the latter expression because, there were people who didn’t know Jesus as King- let alone as someone who claimed to be one. Therefore, it would only be normal for them to see Jesus and know exactly what he is guilty of- Remember, the inscriptions are placed so that people can know what your offense is; in the case of the robbers; anyone seeing them would know they were guilty of robbery, not that they claimed to have robbed. But in the case of Jesus, as the Bible tells us, the Jews did not crucify Him because ‘He claimed to be the king’ but because ‘He is the king’, as recorded in verse 37 of our study guide.

The point is this- As seen from Vs.51-54, the truth will always come out; though delayed- it can never be denied.  When people falsely accuse you, or when people try to hold you down from the truth of who you are, learn from Jesus- hold on to God and they themselves,  will be the ones to affirm to the truth of who you are.

Jesus at any point could have wanted to ‘show off’ and freed Himself from them “but for the joy set before Him, He endured till the very end”. One Key truth Christ left us with from this message is that when we find ourselves in such trying times ( of whatsoever nature), whatever decision we decide to take should always remain in the will of God and in so doing, in the presence of our accusers, we will be liberated and subsequently celebrated.

I therefore decree and declare for you today, in the name that is above all names; that anyone that wants to deny the glory God has placed upon your life, will be the same person to promote it in Jesus name!!!

The story of Joseph and Esther-as seen in Genesis 37-41 and Esther 2-7, respectively, further explain this prayer. 

 

When the enemy is done planning; God’s blessings always comes! If the enemy doesn’t repent, he will fall into the trap he set for you. Here’s the good news though and the message of the cross, the enemy can repent; that is why Christ died on the cross- To Bring Forgiveness and Hope in Salvation.

God bless you as you walk in His footsteps…

Church Love

DAY 9

Christianity is not a religion of hate and bitterness. It does not prey on the weak and ‘the so called sinners’.

Salvation cannot be gotten outside Jesus- The world has rejected Jesus and so cannot find salvation except in the Church- it is important to note that we are the church.

Any time we reject a ‘sinner’ from coming to church, we are saying they should go the world and be saved and then come back to Jesus- there is no biblical backing to this school of thought; for only Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Jesus is salvation.

If a ‘sinner’ gets a platform to come to your church and stays long enough and there is still no conviction, then that church might be compromised.

When Jesus touches you, you can never remain the same. The church should never for fear or favour teach people what the ‘want to hear’ instead of what they ‘ought to hear’. By the way- who told you the church can’t grow a people whose ears are open to what the want to hear as what they ought to hear.

The church is a reflection of Jesus- Jesus is love; therefore the church is love.

God bless you as you walk in Love.

The Consequence

DAY 8

Due to misplaced priorities and inadequate knowledge,  we compromise God’s standard.  We are not called to follow the path the world leads- we are called, in dominion, to light the world.

The fact that you were entertained does not mean you were blessed; you cannot be blessed and not be entertained. Thinking otherwise affirms the first paragraph; if not, then this quote is common sense.

God bless you.

Transformation

DAY 6

What is transforming you?
Who is transforming you?

Whether you know it or not, the people you relate and associate with, affect you with the energy they carry. We tend to tilt towards their reasoning and way of life as we move along their path.

Whom do we worship?

And those who make idols are just like them, as are all
who trust in them- Psalm 115:8

Considering all your years of service to God; are you a reflection of Him or your pastor? We become like those we worship– today’s question is, who do you worship?  Whether or not your transformation would be significant depends on who is (and what is) transforming you.

Remember,  a green dye cannot transform a white cloth into pink– if the solution isn’t working; check to see if you’re answering the right question.

I reiterate,

What is transforming you?
Who is transforming you?

For the perfect and ideal life, I choose Jesus to transform me, and I’m a work in progress.

God bless you.
