      How about it? An effortless flight through life, seeing things you've never noticed before and spotting your enemy afar off. How about it? Being a master, not having to be weary and tired, but able to glide and soar high above it all. Sounds great...Sounds peaceful and powerful. What do we have to do to get it and experience it? How do we get a renewed sense of strength and rest from distress?  We get it by waiting on God; giving it to God and trusting in God.

      "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
      The Word of God says if we wait on the Lord, we will have renewed strength; and then we are compared to eagles. What does that mean? Eagles have large, broad, strong wings and a broad tail that is spread like a fan when they are in flight. Their wings enable them to soar and glide gracefully through the air. Eagles are able to see both forward and to the side at the same time. They can see fish in the water from several hundred feet above. Their vision is about five times sharper than ours. They can reach speeds of 100 mph, and are able to dive for prey at speeds greater than that. An eagle is an amazing bird who is able to soar high above, see far and wide, and able to spy on his enemy or prey without notice.

      Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to soar above all that is going on; to glide effortlessly, seeing all around us and always aware of what's coming? When we wait on the Lord; when we trust in God, we are able to ride on His strength. When we wait on Him, He shows us things with our spiritual eyes that we've never noticed with our natural eyes. When we yield to Him, we are able to defeat our enemy; we are able to move faster without obstructions and distractions, because He lifts us up to new levels. It is a peaceful and powerful life in the Lord.

      There is no need to walk around in the dark; being surprised by the enemy; dragging our feet in the valley and being stuck in a rut. Give it to God; trust in the Lord; wait on your Father... then you will find yourself stronger than ever. Now instead of dragging, you are running, but you are not tired. Now instead of being stuck in a rut, you are soaring above the issues. Now instead of wanting to faint and quit; you refuse to give up or give in. Why? Because now you recognize that your strength is in God. He can do what you can't; and He knows what you don't know. You realize that when you wait on Him, you can rest in Him. What worries are there when God is on your side? What weariness is there when you are trusting El Shaddai, the Almighty God?

      Stop trying to figure things out yourself; stop trying to rush and force things to happen; stop staring at the problem. It's time to give it to God; follow His lead and keep your eyes on the Word. Don't flap around pecking with a bunch of chickens; stand strong and soar like an eagle.

      Just wait on the Lord! Just wait on the Lord! Just wait on the Lord! Just wait!
