How do we get to here: “They shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)? By the first sentence in the verse: “But those who wait on the Lord”.
When we wait quietly for God, we must keep in mind the reason for this waiting-God’s intervention. Our focus is to be on the Lord, not on our troubles, ourselves, or other people. We must also remember that God is working according to His will and timing.

Wait…with an eager and patient anticipation of the Lord.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Psalm 27:14.
~Wait patiently, faithfully, upon the Lord.~
~A simple meditation.~
This photo may not look beautiful, but it is beautiful. It contains a warning that can keep us from trouble. Warnings are beautiful, because they are life preserving. When I read the verse I couldn’t help but think about all of those imprisoned because of revenge. Even more, imprisoned simply because they couldn’t wait. It seems easy enough. It’s stated in just a few words, the warning, or a single word. It’s actually anything but easy for us. I guess that’s why we have this warning.
I couldn’t decide which photo I wanted to use, so I tried them both.
