Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him” (Mark 9:7).

Am I waiting for the Lord Jesus alone, or is my expectation divided? If we really are waiting only for Him, it results in our being able to see Jesus alone in faith in our daily lives, in spite of all trials, tribulations, disappointments and darkness. This is what the three disciples experienced at the transfiguration of the Lord Jesus. The more we are waiting for Him alone, the more His power will be effective in us and through us. This is written in the well-known words of Isaiah 40:31, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Notice the word “walk.” Walking is going at a steady pace, not hurrying or jumping. It is the test of our endurance in waiting. To walk and not faint is the highest we can achieve. The word “walk” is not used as a verb here but to signify a character. The Bible is not abstract; it is always real and alive. God does not say, for instance, “Be spiritual,” but “Walk before me” (Genesis 17:1). Do this today!
