“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
I have never been big on patience, it is a major weakness of mine. I once asked for God to give me patience and He did just that but only by putting me through a year of trails that taught me how to be patient. What a year that was.
Never again would I ask for patience.
However, even when we do not ask for something, He feels that it is needed and I am in that position right now.
I have some things weighing on my heart about ministry. I have two paths I could take, wait and see what God can do or go and God will lead. Not really sure which direction to take. Will be spending some heavy-duty time in prayer to seek His guidance. There were some things that hurt my heart and discouraged me. All of me felt outraged, rejected, untrusted, unwanted and insignificant about the situation I was in. I feel there is a struggle of superiority and pride going on so my instinct was “run while you still can.”
This morning while doing my devotions, I read in my study “rest in Me, My child” and it brought the Isaiah verse to mind. He has given me peace of mind to be patient and wait. I usually do not like to wait for anything but my heart is filled with love and reassurance, that for now, this is where I am supposed to be. I know so long as I do as He instructs, He will lead me down the right path.
