TOPIC: Wait On The Lord For His Manifestation
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 7 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 40:28-31
MEMORY VERSE: “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” – Nahum 1:7
Patiently waiting on the Lord always ends up with a pleasing outcome. The end results are always very rewarding but most of the time, the cost of waiting is the problem. The cost of waiting on the Lord is all about the willingness to trust Him and the ability to endure.
In Isaiah 40:31, the Bible says: “…Those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength, they will mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall run and not faint.”
Waiting on the LORD entails a lot of things, but not limited to the following:
1. It is to have strong belief in the Lord without wavering.
2. It is all about being focused.
3. It is to determine that your obedience to the Lord will be complete: which means that you will hold on to Him until He accomplishes that thing you are expecting from Him.
4. It is to trust Him to the end without doubting His ability to give you what you are expecting from Him.
The Bible says those that wait on the LORD shall renew their strength. This implies that because of your complete trust in Him, He will keep nurturing you until the time or day of your fulfilment. He will keep sustaining you until the BIG or REAL thing comes through.
The fact that you are waiting for your BIG request or testimony from God to materialise will not stop Him from nurturing you on the basis of your daily needs. He will keep nurturing and sustaining you until those GREAT demands of yours come to reality.
When you find yourself in the category of people waiting on the LORD, you would realise that there are times you will be thinking of how to meet immediate needs perhaps, the time to pay house rent has come or may be payment of school fees or meeting some other financial obligations. You would soon come to realise that, God, Jehovah El-Rohi, the one who sees the end from the beginning, would orchestrate help and you will definitely meet those needs, no matter how tough the situation may be. Sometimes, it may even seem as if you and your family will not be able to feed in the days ahead, but suddenly, help comes from seemingly nowhere but from above. Therefore, be encouraged, O child of God, for He who has promised has not forgotten you; He will surely renew you in strength. As He renews you in strength at the right time, He said, you would mount up with wings like eagles, taking you higher and higher to an unexpected height because of your endurance. Wait, therefore on Him today and if nothing seems to be happening, just keep waiting.
THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM ARE NEVER DISAPPOINTED. HOLD FAST TO HIM, HE WILL NOT FORGET YOU BUT WILL KEEP SUSTAINING AND NURTURING YOU.
Your enemies shall not rejoice over you.
1. Power to make it in life, locate me by fire, in the name of Jesus.
2. Any power that says: “You will never make it in life”, you are a liar, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. The position that none of my family members has occupied before, I take it by fire, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every book of failure that has been opened for my destiny, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
5. Thou Goliath of my destiny, your time is up, fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
6. I declare that I am not a ground person, I belong to the eagle’s club. By the power in the blood of Jesus, I move higher, in the name of Jesus.
7. Star of my destiny, keep shining from now on, in the name of Jesus.
