MORNINGTIME 2125
 
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. There are 2 ways to Wait upon the Lord that we will touch on here. The first is, there are trials, troubles, testing, and tribulations, you're in a hard place and you need to hear a definite Word from the Lord for direction in your situation. You're wanting to be careful to move His Way and not jump the gun with your way. You head for the Prayer Closet and are content to Patiently Wait on Him. The second way is, you have heard from the Lord with a specific direction, or a needed Word, or Promise, and you are very content to leave it all in His Hands as you go about your day to day doings. You KNOW He will bring to pass His Promise for you in the Fullness of His Time. You're not watching the clock or wondering if the Lord will come through or not. In both of these ways, you are in Perfect Peace Trusting the Lord and His Word, and that's good enough for you. When God Promises something, IT'S A DONE DEAL. NO MORE CONCERN IS NECESSARY. It's His Promise, or Word, that you've been told about that will come, someday, for you, you KNOW His Word or Promise is True, and that's the last you concern yourself with it. A simple illustration. A good company to work for hires you and tells you you will be paid every Friday at 3 o'clock in the afternoon by direct deposit into your bank account. That's a Promise and you can count on it. You have 2 choices, the first, fret all week long worrying about, maybe your money won't be there when promised, or two, rest in that Promise and joyfully work all week long with never a care or concern about your money. You don't even check with the bank at 3 to make sure it's there. It's now Saturday and you go to buy something, still NO CONCERN, you pay with plastic and go on your way. Can you Trust the Lord like that with His Word and Promises, and, Be Blessed?
