Bible Text: Isaiah 40:28-31
Title: Flying Over Mountains
Verse 31 of the text tells us what we should do, that is to wait on the Lord. Waiting on the Lord doesn’t mean you should lock the door and keep bombarding God with request but that’s not it. The one who waits is a waiter. The job of a waiter is as follows
1. They take you to where you should sit
2. They give you water to drink
3. They provide you with food
4. They standby to receive your instructions incase you want something else. They wait on you and stand by you until you are fully satisfied.
1. Since the text says we should wait, this means God is the guest and you are the waiter. What should you do for him to sit.. Psalms 132:7-8. You start by worshiping him.
2. And then you give him water to drink. This is very important. John 19:28. He didn’t complain about the stripes he got, the pains nor the crowns but he only asked for water.
3. Then you have to present God with the food of his choice. In John4:23-24 the Bible says for God to be satisfied with your food you must worship him in Spirit and in truth. You must honor God also.. How?? In psalms he said you should Glorify him.
4. Lastly you must wait until he’s fully satisfied and pleased. Revelation 4:8-11 tells us how it should be done. Make sure he’s fully satisfied. Example in Genesis 18:1-14.
You shouldn’t be bombarding him with request you are the waiter he isn’t. He’s the guest of honor. The interesting thing is when the waiter has satisfied the guest, the guest will surely give the waiter a Tip. And the greater the guest the greater the Tip. After God has giving you the tip then you can flying over any mountain.
1. You can fly over the mountain of Failure – Luke 5:1-11. You want to fly over failure make God happy.
2. If You want to fly over the mountain of Poverty wait on the lord. 1kings 17:8-16.
3. When You wait on the Lord correctly you will fly over the mountain of Barrenness 2kings 4:8-17.
4. When You wait on the Lord Appropriately, you will fly over the mountain of physical Lockdown. Acts 16:16-34.
5. When You wait upon the lord correctly, you will fly over the mountain of spiritual lockdowns. They are free physically but then the forces of darkness has lock them down. Mark 5:2-20. Are you in bondage or you have a problem that can’t be explained, just wait on the Lord and please him.
6. You can flying over the spirit of death if you wait upon the lord correctly. 2kings 9:2-11 , Genesis 5:24, Heb 12:5, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
Wait on him, please him , thank him for what he’s done, worship him for who he is.
In conclusion, If you have not surrendered your life to Jesus Christ don’t waste your time praising him, Proverbs 15:8, it’s an abomination. So in your own interest before we begin to praise him, surrender your life to Jesus, let’s his blood wash you clean.
