TEXT: ISAIAH 40: 27-31
27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 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.
Key verse: Isaiah 25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
I wish My children while on earth to live more and more in the heavenly places. Here, there is no fear or hurry or fret of spirit. I am gratified when you wait upon Me which waiting I always honor. My thoughts, as you wait upon Me, are impressed upon you: all that I AM must be increasingly absorbed by you. It is as you wait upon Me that I give to you that sense of calm assurance which you must carry about with you always. It comes from knowing that everything you have committed to Me is being surely worked out, Yes, immerse yourself in Me and do not look anxiously within yourself to see what you are becoming! My child, wait much upon Me.
“The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.” (Psalm 118:6-12).
My child, irrespective of what you consider to be your own merit (or failure), irrespective of how you feel, always cling to the certainty that I am answering your prayers. My loved ones have to learn utter dependence upon Me - not upon fluctuating moods, or even upon My revelations to them! Just be patient with yourself, knowing that My constant influence simply cannot help prevailing in your life. Although My purposes cannot be frustrated, they can, of course, be held up. They can be held up if you allow the continued presence in your life of things hurtful to Me. They can be held up by doubting Me, when confidence in Me was perfectly possible for you.
Thought for the day: Those who wait on God are never disappointed.
Song for the day: Trust and obey
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 4-6; Acts 16:16-40
