It is HOT. I don't mean warm
or toasty, it is HOT! The weatherman says it is unseasonably HOT. We expect
extreme heat in the summer, but not in the early spring.
God designed the world to
run in seasons or cycles. They are predictable movements of nature. Have
you ever considered the cycles of your Christian life? God promised to
give you seasonal strength if you will wait upon the Lord. (Isa 40:31)
ECSTASY. "They shall
mount up with wings as eagles." An eagle spreads its wings and soars
upon the wind. There is no strenuous effort involved, only a dependance
upon the wind and an enjoyment of the journey. Christians experience seasons
of inexpressible ecstasy, these are moments of deep worship and praise.
ENERGY. "They shall
run and not be weary." The cheetah runs fast, but it does not run
far because it grows tired. God promises you an inexhaustible source of
energy. Christians experience seasons of energy, these are moments of ministry
ENDURANCE. "They shall
walk and not faint." Turtles do not have the perspective of the eagle
or the grace of a cheetah, but they know how to endure. The snapping turtle
is legendary for its determination to bite and hold. Christians experience
seasons of endurance, these are moments of faith & hope.

I'd prefer to soar like an
eagle or sprint like a cheetah than to crawl around like a turtle. Unfortunately
I can't control the seasons. All I can do is remain faithful to wait upon
