      THE LONGER YOU WAIT, THE STRONGER YOU GET!
      “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait
      I say on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

      The longer you wait, the stronger you get (if you trust in God). What have you
      been waiting for? What have you been praying for? Sometimes it seems that it’s
      taking forever; sometimes it may seem that it will never come to pass....But the
      truth of the matter is, if you trust in God, the longer you wait, the stronger
      you get.

      Why? Because there is a difference between just waiting for something to happen,
      and waiting for God to move. When you are waiting on the Lord for change; for
      healing; for deliverance; for a breakthrough; for an answer; for your
      relationship; for your peace; for your children, etc...You shouldn’t just sit back
      and look for it to happen, you should be praying and seeking; meditating on the
      scriptures...You should be confessing what God says about it and trusting God to
      do what He says He will do....then, the longer you wait, the stronger you get.

      While you‘re waiting you will be leaning on God more; while you‘re waiting you
      will come to trust the Word more; while you are waiting you will spend more time
      with God; while you are waiting, you will come to know God better; while you are
      waiting you will realize that you have no power without Him; no miracles without
      Him and no strength without Him. You will realize that you need Him more than
      you thought and that He is able to do more than you know.  

      When you wait on God, your dependence goes from people to Father; your faith
      goes from what you can see to what you can’t see. When you wait on God, you
      begin to realize that everything that takes place while you‘re waiting is
      necessary and makes you stronger, not weaker. When you wait on God, you find
      that you are doing more of what He says and getting more of what He promises.
      The longer you wait, the stronger you get.

      Waiting causes us to realize that our strength is in the Lord and not in
      ourselves. We realize that without Him, we are nothing and without Him we can do
      nothing.
      ‘...Wait I say on the Lord.’
      “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; they shall walk, and
      not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

      Don’t be impatience...when you are waiting on the Lord, the longer you wait, the
      stronger you get!!!
