    Psalms 40:1 (KJV) 
    I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. 

    Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) 
    31 But 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. 

    .... renew - change or renew - exchange - pass on (to)

    Notice in the KJV the word "their" is in italics meaning it was added by the translators for clarity, but look at Young's Literal Translation

    Isaiah 40:31 (YLT) 
    31 But those expecting Jehovah pass to power, They raise up the pinion as eagles, They run and are not fatigued, They go on and do not faint! 

    Whose power? God's power. 

    Paul tells us in Eph 6 to "be strong in the Lord and the power of His might". 

    2 Corinthians 3:17-18 (YLT) 
    17 And the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty; 
    18 and we all, with unveiled face, the glory of the Lord beholding in a mirror, to the same image are being transformed, from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 

    ... There is an exchange happening ...

    2 Corinthians 3:17-18 (AMP) 
    17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). 
    18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. 

    1 Corinthians 14:4 (AMP) 
    He who speaks in a [strange] tongue edifies and improves himself ....

    .... edify - to charge like a battery, to build up, to strengthen

    Jude 1:20-21 (NET1) 
    20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith, by praying in the Holy Spirit, 
    21 maintain yourselves in the love of God, while anticipating the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that brings eternal life. 

    .... While we are waiting on the Lord, looking into the Word, beholding Him and spending time, yielding to Him in the spirit we are being changed. We are taking on His image, His strength and His power. Wait patiently, let your battery get a complete charge and be sure to plug into the "charger" everyday.

    There is a song that says, "More Love, More Power, More of You in my life". That requires at least two things.

    1. More Time with Him.

    2. Less of me.

    Thank You Lord for all you give to us as we wait upon You. Thank you for your faithfulness, for your mercy, your love and abundant grace.
