“The engines of the airplane are revved up to a certain percentage of full power. This percentage depends on the size, weight and type of airplane, but once that value is reached, the brakes are released. The airplane then starts building up speed rapidly and the throttles are steadily pushed to full power for takeoff.” The aeroplane takes off when it reaches the acceptable acceleration or speed.
“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.” Read Isaiah 40:31 (KJV).
Listen to this, “God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.” A. W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
Benefit of Patiently waiting include:
- You will run
- To run means to advance speedily or to be swift. Like an athlete moving forward with full effort and directed purpose. The Bible says, “The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet and makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility].” Read Habakkuk 3:19 (AMP). In other words, I will run securely and surefooted.
- The person who runs, has a purpose in mind, and that is to win. We win the race of life by allowing the word of the Lord run swiftly and have its way in our lives.
- You won’t be weary
- The Bible says, “Don’t give up and be helpless in times of trouble.” Read Proverbs 24:10 (CEV). This same verse reads even better, “If you fall to pieces in a crisis there wasn’t much to you in the first place.” Read Proverbs 24:10 (MSG). There is so much more to you than what you can ever imagine. There is greatness in you, there is boldness in you, there is a fighter and a champion in you, there is power (dynamic ability) in you, there is peace and joy in you, there is wisdom in you, and the list can go on and on; so don’t give up or cave in under the weight of the pressure; for you know where our help comes from it comes from the Lord. “Christ in your hearts is your only hope of glory.” Read Colossians 1:27 (TLB). And remember, “The battle is the Lords…” With this insight beloved, you will always win, and why shouldn’t you?
Remembering, “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” Read Romans 8:28 (AMP).
I encourage you my friend, to remain steadfast and solid in the faith. Your day of visitation will surely come in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
We write. You read. Be encouraged.
One thought on “Benefit: You shall run and not be weary – Part 5”
Oh my word, this is a real blessing reading this post. I am encouraged and stirred up in my spirit to keep on and not give in, nor quit.
Thank you again for your insight made simple; it surely has to be by the Holy Spirit.
Blessings upon blessings in the Name of Jesus.
