We spend much of our time waiting.  Waiting for a ride.  Waiting in lines.  Waiting to have a medical test or procedure done.  Waiting for the results for that medical test or procedure.  Waiting for something to arrive in the mail.  Waiting for circumstances in our life to change.  Waiting for deliverance.  Often worry and anxiety accompany our waiting.  Isaiah 40:31 says, "Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."  In reference to this verse, John MacArthur has said, "There is a general principle here that patient, praying believers are blessed by the Lord with strength in their trials."  Trusting in God's perfect timing and waiting with patience.  Not always the easiest things to do.  What are you waiting for today?
