Word of the Day... February 19, 2013

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. Isaiah 40:31

I was having a Bible study and pastor brought something up that was so cool I had to check it.  I got a Strong’s Complete dictionary for the Bible and I love it!!! It has English, Hebrew and Greek.  Since I have been using this I really am getting a better understanding of the Word and it gets me really excited!!!

Anyway I had to look up the word wait and Pastor Skip was right. What does it mean to wait on the Lord? Does it mean to just, sort of, sit around and wait? No.  One of my definitions said to wait on as a servant.  Hey I know how to do that.  I was a waitress when I was younger and I waited on many people.  Believe me that never meant to just sit on the side and wait for my customers to come to me and tell me what they wanted. I went to them and asked how I could help them. Would they like coffee, water or how would they like their food prepared.

So I started to think about this and I got really excited! If you want your strength to increase, get the focus off of your problem and start serving the Lord. I needed to be the best waiter I could to the Lord, to really get involved. You know what I found out?  When I wait on the Lord my strength didn’t diminish.  I got stronger. By seeking the Lord and what He wanted me to do I was staying plugged in to the Holy Spirit.  I was living in God’s will and way for my life.

The Holy Spirit is our Power Source and as Christians we need to stay plugged in!  I have to ask the Holy Spirit every morning to recharge my batteries.  I like the picture of the cars at the mall getting plugged in so they can do the job they were made for. I want to stay plugged in to the Holy Spirit so my batteries never die.  I hope you all have a Simply Heavenly Tuesday!!!
