Spiritual weakness is a disparagement, especially as a relapse, and after some former degrees of strength. The justified believer derives strength to advance to closest fellowship with God from the hope that he may meet Him in likeness of character.4. Then I have a question to ask. (1) The motion itself. "Because of His strength," says the Psalmist, "I will wait upon Him, for God is my defence." "Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart." "Our soul waiteth for the Lord . Now when he ceases from self and takes God as his strength, he changes his strength.2. hath it not been told yon from the beginning?

He mounted up on eagle's wings to meet the down-coming Spirit of the Father. By that renovation and increase of spiritual strength which is the effect of waiting on the Lord, His people acquire greater alacrity and perseverance in doing His will. To "walk worthy of his high vocation" is the supreme exploit of the Christian's faith. Expectation.3. On the other hand, Divine strength never fails.

But such seasons of elevated devotion and delightful contemplation are not constant. (2) While only the few can thus fly, many can only run. They shall walk and not faint words which seem to denote consistency in common daily life. SPIRITUAL STRENGTH, HOW IS IT TO BE OBTAINED? The truth lies the other way! Under such circumstances it is that, in the Divine ordering of things, what are called distresses, infirmities, and even great sorrows, are blessed of God to the opening of their nature and to the renewing of their spiritual strength. L. Wiseman, B. A.Mount up with wings as eagles, run, walk. In rapturous contemplation of the things of God. With a stronger stroke than the eagle's wing will he be able to beat the air and penetrate to the third heaven; he will run before the chariot of the king and get to the city sooner than the fleetest horses of which even the king of Israel can boast; like Asahell he shall be lissom of limb and light of foot; and when far in the trackless desert even the endurance of the camel gives out, shall the man of God hold on his way. He comes down from the mount made ready, like Moses, for work in the camp at large, or in the retirement of his tent. Such a vision restores the heart of faith. If, then, truth is eternal, and faith is omnipotent, why should any difficulties, however stupendous, or failures, however extensive, lead us to despair? Our text speaks not only of flying, but of running and walking. And sated with the weary sum Of all men think, and hear, and see, O more than mother's heart, I come, A tired child to Thee. Reasons for this prohibition from Moses, Isaiah, and Paul. 30, 31.

Beneath that bright beam the moisture that encumbered it is exhaled; its bent stalk raises itself again, its shrivelled petals expand into beauty, and it diffuses around a cheering fragrance in gratitude to the power that has renewed its strength. All the organs are there, but they want new strength. In point of honour, and that especially with God Himself.

We traverse the solid unromantic ground of principle, while the ghost of many a shattered illusion haunts our path. Then I have a question to ask. 3. --ISAIAH xl.

Learn to come into blessed fellowship with God. But once we understand that it is God that must work it in us, then I understand that my highest passivity will be my highest activity, for when I give myself entirely away to God, God can work in me, and then I will work as they that wait upon the Lord."1. There is many a young man who thinks, "I find plenty of occupation for my energy in the service of the world, but if I become a religious man, then I am sure to become a poor, lifeless, morose character." For every new occasion, every new trial, every new labour, we shall get new power. "They shall mount up. Is thy walk less with God, thy frame less heavenly? V. This is not genuine strength, but real disease. This is a mounting up on wings, as compared with which the rest are but running and walking.

It seemed impossible that these few exiles could escape from those nations, and go back to their own land and restore their institutions, but they did. The picture of Moses and the children of Israel singing, and Miriam and the women answering: a gush of national pride and of worship! In religious experience youth is the time of wings.

The recurrence of the same form of interrogation in these two verses is remarkable. For such patience not only carries within itself the germs of strength, but also places the soul in that condition in which it is most susceptible of quickening influences and can most readily take advantage of fresh opportunities. We use it, too, with reference to the holding of an interview with a superior: a deputation "waits" upon the Prime Minister; the Prime Minister "waits" upon His Majesty.

In such moods we need to look away from the crowds, and from the glaring lights of the city, to the calm glories of the moon, and the stars above our heads.
