Welcome to Day 25 of our 40-day countdown to Easter! Entr’acte! (Pronounced ˈänˌtrakt). 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 (Isaiah 40:31). One of the most difficult things for most of us to do is to wait. Although most of us do not like it, waiting is necessary for us to move from one location to another.
We wait in line at the restaurant to be seated to experience fine dining.
We wait in line at the airport to board our flight to arrive to our destination.
We wait for the coworker to finish his part of the project so that we can do our part.
We wait in traffic to arrive to home so that we can experience the quality of life.
We wait for files to download on the computer so that we can gain access to them.
During a stage production, we wait after one act ends in anticipation for the next act.
Entr’acte, a French term, is the interval between the two acts of a stage play. Each act is important but because the next act compliments the previous act.
During the entr’acte of a stage play, you don’t leave the premise. You stay put. If you leave the premise, you will not experience the next act.
The entr’acte allows time for the actors/actresses to prepare for the next act.
The entr’acte allows time for the onlookers to refresh themselves.
The entr’acte is a time of renewal.
The entr’acte is a time of refreshing.
The entr’acte is a time to develop patience to wait on the promise.
God will renew our strength during the entr’acte.
God will refresh us during the entr’acte.
God will restore us during the entr’acte.
During the entr’acte God prepares us to receive the blessing. The blessing you’re about to receive is so great, you need an entr’acte to prepare yourself for it.
Don’t leave the premise during the entr’acte because if you do you will not experience God’s next move in your life.
Stay sober minded.
Renew your mind with God’s word.
Renew your spirit with songs of praise and worship.
Renew your strength by obeying Him during the entr’acte.
God wants you to know that it takes strength to handle a bamboo financial blessing.
God wants you to know that It takes strength to handle to handle bamboo critical mass.
God has not forgotten us. We are now experiencing an entr’acte.
Father God, thank you for giving me an entr’acte to prepare myself to receive bamboo critical mass, bamboo financial growth, and bamboo soteria blessings (healing, deliverance, safety, provision, and soundness of mind). Holy Spirit, anoint my head with oil. Let my cup overflow during this entr’acte, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
