Wait On The Lord

“Be silent before me, you islands!
Let the nations renew their strength!
Let them come forward and speak;
let us meet together at the place of judgment.
- Isaiah 41:1 -

All things on earth need to be renewed.

No created thing can continue by itself.

Even the trees must drink of the rain of heaven and suck from the hidden treasures of the soil.

The life of men must be sustained with constant renewal from God.

It is necessary to repair the waste of the body by frequent meal.

It is also necessary to repair the waste of the soul by feeding upon the Word of God.

How depressed it is to hear and know that some saints are living without the diligent use of the Word of God and secret prayer!

Without constant restoration, we are not ready for the perpetual assaults of hell, worldliness, and the strifes from within.

Let us draw near to the footstool of divine mercy in humble entreaty.

Let us wait on the Lord.

They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.
