I was getting ready to go out today and I was telling the LORD how very tired I was and how I needed some supernatural strength today. Suddenly the LORD reminded me of a scripture in Isaiah and a song began to come out that I use to sing when I led worship back at the old church that I went to back in the 80’s. The main chorus was the scripture in Isaiah 40:31,
“But those who wait for the LORD [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.”
IT’S A MATTER OF TIMING
While I was singing this song, the LORD began to say to me. Again, “IT IS A MATTER OF TIMING!”.
He said, “When you get out of My timing and do not wait upon Me, you cannot exchange strength with me.
When you get out of sync with the rhythm of heaven, you lose your strength because, you are doing things in your own strength, but if you WAIT UPON ME AND MY TIMING, you will have all of the strength that you need!
Did I not say in ‘Psalm 27:14 “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD?”
So if you want My strength, you must wait upon My timing! Then is when you will mount up with wings as eagles again! It is time to soar!”
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding. He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound], Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; But those who wait for the LORD [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired,” Isaiah 40:28-31.
