Do you not know? Have you not heard? Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of the whole earth. He never grows faint or weary; there is no limit to His understanding. He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless. Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint. -Isaiah 40:28-31 HCSB
Waiting to see exactly what God has planned can be a difficult thing for us to do. I have often quoted the above scripture to suggest that waiting on God is similar to waiting tables, I still think that is true. While we are serving God in our current context, and looking forward to the next chapter in our lives, it can be difficult to actually wait to see what God has planned for our future. Here is some insight as many of our graduates are moving to the next chapter of their lives.
- We should be focused on our current service wholeheartedly no matter where or when God will move us to the next chapter of our lives.
- If we are concerned about our future to the point where we are worried about it, our worries will wear us out and we will not be able to serve God in our current context.
- Waiting on the Lord means that we trust Him to provide for our future, eliminating worry and the strain and weariness that comes along with it. We literally gain strength to live and work in our current context because God is willing to take care of our future for His glory.
