Isaiah 40:31

As human beings, I’ve come to learn that we share a trait that’s common to every one of us. Some perhaps are a little better at this than others, but I’ve come to find at length that the proverb of Solomon is true: “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life” (Prov. 13:12). Who likes to wait? Children I find are worse at this than adults, but then most adults never grow up from this childhood trait. “Mommy, can I have...can I have!” “Daddy, I want...I want!” Have you noticed how closely behind each request, the other follows on its heels? The little darlings try every which way possible to get our attention, and if persistent asking doesn’t work, then there’s always the waterworks!!

As believers in Jesus Christ, we must abandon “self-will” in favour of “God’s will”. This sermon is a strong call to the Body of Christ to learn what it means to wait upon the Lord and in waiting, to pray; not my will, but Thine be done!
