Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for 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 40:30-31, ESV
Why does God sometimes make us wait?
1. Waiting makes us stop (Psalm 37:7).
2. Waiting helps us listen (Mark 8:18-21).
3. Waiting makes us patient (James 5:7).
4. Waiting helps us trust God (Isaiah 40:30-31).
5. We can wait because God waits for us! (2 Peter 3:9 & Luke 15-The Prodigal Son).
Question for Reflection
