Bro. Roger Webb preached: “It’s Worth the Wait”
Isaiah 40:25-31 ( primary text verse 31)
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
25 To whom then will ye liken me,
or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes on high,
and behold who hath created these things,
that bringeth out their host by number:
he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might,
for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel,
My way is hid from the Lord,
and my judgment is passed over from my God?
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard,
that the everlasting God, the Lord,
the Creator of the ends of the earth,
fainteth not, neither is weary?
there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 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.
What ever you’re waiting on, it’s worth it. God is saying I see you, I’ve not forgotten you, I’m making a way for you.
They that wait: This form of the word “wait” in Greek means to bind together by twisting.
If you are waiting, there is an expectancy.
We need to bind together as a body of believers to the main string, Jesus Christ. Then we will be able to withstand and have strength. When individuals cling to that one twine of hope alone, it can easily snap and they’ll fall to the enemy. The Lord is good to those that bind together. If you stand steadfast in the Lord, through time, God will exalt you (lift you up) publicly.
