Wait Upon the Lord

By   •   January 23   •   Topics:

open Bible

Jerome, one of the early Christians, said, “Ignorance of the Bible means ignorance of Christ.” Job once said, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” Jeremiah said, “Thy words were found and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” To read the Bible one needs a “quiet time.” Christian students often ask, “How do you maintain your spiritual high? What do you do on a daily basis?” I tell them about my “quiet time.” Some days it is in the early-sometimes late-morning, sometimes evening. Without it, my Christian life would be a wilderness. Isaiah said, “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” (Isaiah 40:31). So gain the strength of eagles, as the prophet suggested. Set a time each day when you can spend a few minutes alone with God.

Prayer for the day

Dear Lord, teach us to wait upon You, that
we may know Your strength.

    As far as maintaining Spiritual Growth, this is perhaps the best advice anyone could ever recieve. An olympic runner would not likely finish well if they did not train daily. So it is with Believers. They should take a bit of time each day to study God’s Holy Word. It really helps……
