Are You Tired Of Waiting?
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 (KJV)
Who likes to wait? We're the 'now' generation. The majority of God's talented performers give up their dreams because they grow tired of waiting. Truly, their big break may have been one day away.

Most of us hate to wait on others, but we're content to wait on ourselves. We wait to start a diet, break a bad habit, find a church, or call a needy friend. We wait to pursue our dreams.

We wait on people or circumstances to be just right. We wait on God to transform our sedentary lives and complain from the comfortable discomfort of our homes.

Then, we get busy with the wrong things. As a result, we become tired, disappointed and frustrated.

Here's the thing: don't wait on people for inspiration. Don't wait on yourself. Don't wait on the right time to do the right thing. Step forward. Do it now, and while you're stepping...

Do wait on God. Wait in eager and patient expectation. God has the power to change you and your circumstances. He delights in promoting His children, and His timing is perfect.

This is great news! Once you realize on Whom to wait, everything gets easier! You begin walking, running, and even flying to your destiny. You are renewed, refreshed, and revitalized. You will not only get stronger, your hope will take wings.

You will soar in this world and beyond it. You will realize your potential. You will realize your calling.

Sit in the front seat. Raise your hand first, and keep raising it first. God will call on you at the perfect time. And don't look back when you walk through the door.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
