Last night a friend gave me a bookmark with a Bible verse on it. It says, "But they that wait upon 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
The commentary in my Bible states about the verse: "Even the strongest people get tired at times, but God's power and strength never diminish. He is never too tired or too busy to help and listen. His strength is our source of strength. When you feel all of life crushing you and you cannot go another step, remember that you can call upon God to renew your strength."
"We all need regular times to listen to God. Waiting on the Lord is expecting his promised strength to help us rise above life's distractions and difficulties. Listening to God helps us to be prepared when he speaks to us, to be patient when he asks us to wait, and to expect him to fulfill his promises found in his Word."
