Wait Upon the Lord!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

Every time you look at the news it seems as though that the times of unrest never cease. It seems like an unending time of turmoil and uncertainty.

However, during these times of unrest, we should be turning to God and trusting in Him.

Use this time to draw closer in your relationship with Him. Look to Him for answers. Wait upon the Lord. He will give you strength.

Isaiah 40:31 says: “But those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not become weary. they will walk and not faint.”

Brenton Brown was in his mid 20’s serving as a worship leader in England when he began to not feel right.

He was tired all of the time. He went to the doctor and he was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue syndrome. His boss set him down and said he needed to go home and rest. So he moved back home with his parents. It was a time where he felt as though his life had come to a stop. All of the plans and dreams he and his girlfriend–now his wife–had made, were not able to be pursued.

They were distraught and wondered if the Lord knew what they were going through. It was in the midst of this time they rediscovered this chapter in Isaiah. It was a source of comfort knowing that God knows what they were going through. This is the basis for the song Everlasting God.

Here are the lyrics for Everlasting God:

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
Wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
Wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our strong delivere
r

You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint, You won’t grow weary
You’re the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles

God knows what we are going through and He will carry us through.

He is the Everlasting God!
