This message is about waiting. I won’t make you wait any longer to tell you why the Bible says those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Do you get weary while waiting? In this world of hustle, waiting and having patience can be a challenge. Let me tell you why waiting is necessary. There is an appointed time for things to happen.
