Those Who Wait upon the Lord

The storm has passed. 
The birds are singing.
The night is over. 
Tough times never last. 
Tough people do! 

That's really true if we live moment by moment, day by day, 
in complete surrender to God in prayer. Through prayer, God 
gives the power to hold on to tough times until the breakthrough 

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. (Isa. 40:31) 

I have found immense strength through this promise of God. As 
I wait upon Him in prayer I find the strength to go on. The terrible 
danger in tough times is that we lose our emotional power to remain 
enthusiastic and creative. But the solution God offers is prayer, the 
power that pulls everything together successfully.
