Waiting on God

This week I am exploring passages of scripture that deal with the topic of waiting on God.  The early disciples waited from the day of Jesus’ ascension into heaven for God’s Spirit and direction to come to them on the day of Pentecost.

Daily reading: Isaiah 40:26-31

Focus scripture: Youths will become tired and weary, young men will certainly stumble; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength; they will fly up on wings like eagles; they will run and not be tired; they will walk and not be weary. Isaiah 40:30-31

Waiting on God begins with a deep trust in God and in God’s goodness in your life.  Isaiah reminds us that God created our vast world and has understanding beyond our own.  God’s strength and energy is greater than youths who do grow weary and tire.

Discernment is the process of prayerfully listening for God’s direction in your life.  Take time today to consider what you spend your day doing.   How many of your actions are obligations and how many of them stem from a calling from God?
When we engage in Kingdom work, we will find renewed energy and strength.

Prayer:  God I desire to be led by you today, help me to see how I can follow.  Amen.
