Pocket Sized Thoughts – Patience – Part 8

Isaiah chapter 40 was written at a time of great upheaval but it also asks us questions in verse 21. It asks, in effect, what are we looking at? Young men are strong, but even they can faint. We can think that we are psychologically, emotionally, mentally, or even spiritually strong. However, our own resources will eventually run out. We need more. Therefore, Isaiah exhorts us to wait upon the Lord. This kind of waiting involves seeking. As we wait and patiently seek, a new strength, the strength of God enters. It is a picture of being filled with the Holy Spirit. He makes us to run and not tire, to walk and not fall. Best of all, He gives us wings as eagles to soar over every contrary air current and gaze at the throne of God and the face of Jesus Christ. What an amazing promise!

PRAYER :- “Lord, help me to seek you and be filled with the wonderful Person of the Holy Spirit.”
