Waiting and Trusting

imageshands

Isaiah 40:31
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.

Those that wait on me will gain new strength.
Spending time alone withMe is so good for you,
but it is increasingly countercultural.

(I had to look up countercultural –
a way of life and a set of ideas
that are completely different from
those accepted by most of society
)

Multitaking and staying busy
have become the norm.
So I encourage you to break free
from all the activity
and demands for a while.
During the Advent season,
there are even more things
to be done and places to go.
Seek My Face and enjoy My Presence,
remembering that Christmas is all about Me.

Psalm 27:8
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
my heart said unto thee,
Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

Waiting upon Me is an act of faith–
trusting that prayer really does make a difference.
Come unto Me with your weariness and your burdens,
being candid and real with Me.

Matthew 11:28
Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Rest in My Presence, and tell Me about your concerns.
Let Me lift the burdens from your aching shoulders.
Trust that I an able to do exceedingly abundantly abouve all you ask or think.

Ephesians 3:20-21
Now unto him that is able to do
exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus
throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

As you arise from these quiet moments,
hear Me whispering, “I am with you” throughout the day.
Rejoice in the new strength you have gained
through spending time with Me.
Devotional reading from Jesus Always, Sarah Young
