“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 40:31
Led Forward by Love (Waiting for The Lord), from L.Willows
Belief is a wondrous act of our hearts and minds. It can lead us forward; give us hope, it can even reveal what we long for most deeply. When we search with the eyes of our soul and look upward to the One that calls us to Himself we see God. We are led forward by Love. I trust that. We all can. It is a promise to us.
In Greek, the root word from which we get ‘faith, the noun is PISTIS, and ‘BELIEVE‘, the verb is PISTUEO. FAITH – PISTIS means faith, belief, firm persuasion, assurance, firm conviction, faithfulness. BELIEVE – PISTUEO – to trust in and rely upon, commit to the charge of, confide in, have a mental persuasion.
We place our trust in what we wait upon.
When we wait for the Lord in this way, we are employing our belief in God with complete trust. Waiting compels us to learn to trust God. Trusting and relying completely upon God is the opposite of depending on the assurances of ‘this world’. It is putting full confidence in the Presence of God.
We soar when we wait on The Lord.
We can go to God for Hope. He promises to LIFT us up.
The wondrous part about trusting God is that His answers do not fail us. Our lives are lifted into His faithful Shepherding. The walk shifts. We are not alone. We never were. Serving the Lord means putting Him first, at the forefront. We follow Love.
The Lord Leads Us Forward
We serve the Hope, which is His Presence. When we wait upon the Lord, our hearts soar. Our lives are lifted. We are led forward by Love.
