Waiting On vs. Waiting Around for God

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Waiting on God and waiting around for God are two very different things. It’s waiting on God that will renew your strength. Waiting on God is active, like a waiter waiting on tables. He seeks, listens and responds. He expects that he will be given orders to fulfill. Waiting around is just wishful thinking. To wait on God means to worship, ascend, infuse and trust. This kind of waiting causes you to mount up on wings as eagles. “But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬, NKJV‬‬).
