Bible verse in Yoruba
Isaiah 40:31 – Ṣugbọn awọn ti o ba duro de Oluwa yio tun agbara wọn ṣe; nwọn o fi iyẹ́ gùn oke bi idì; nwọn o sare, kì yio si rẹ̀ wọn; nwọn o rìn, ãrẹ̀ kì yio si mu wọn.
Key: Most times when we call on God for help we in a haste to get response from Him; sometimes the answers come quickly and sometimes it doesn’t. When you have prayed and it seems that God is silent, wait for the Lord (For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. Isaiah 55:8 KJV). He knows what you need and at the right time your answers will manifest and your joy shall be full.
Action Cue: As children of God, we wait on the Lord by spending time with the Word of God and with the Spirit of God in an atmosphere of prayer, a purposeful fasting is another way to wait on the Lord…in a secret place.
In waiting we are asking God to take total control; as we do that, He anoints us with new strength, new energy, new thoughts, new direction, new vision, etc.
Prayer: Father, as I wait on You, strengthen me and let my answers manifest in due time. Amen.
