WAIT Vol 10 No 8

Dear Friend,

There are many immense things to ponder that are dominating today’s world stage from the tremendous unrest in the Middle East to the ongoing devastation and trauma of Japan.


I found myself remembering the scene in the movie, Chariots of Fire, in which Eric Liddell reads selected verses from Isaiah 40 in the King James Version.  As Eric reads, the movie shows the athletes’ greatest efforts coming to nothing.


Daily, we are reminded of our finitude and our need to wait upon the LORD.


15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance…*


23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.


 28 Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?


 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.


 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.


With joy - E. Stanley Ott
