Is. 40:31 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. - We all face situations in life where we want to run out ahead of God, run in a different direction, or simply run away. This word "wait" means to stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens. It's in the "waiting on the Lord" that we will receive our direction, answer, the next step in the plan. If you haven't taken the time to "wait" the tendency will be to "run." It's in the "waiting" that you receive the "staying power."
