Wait on the LORD

Good day all,

The Word for today is: Wait on the Lord! Lam 3:25-26 says, “The LORD is good to them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”

Why are we in such a hurry when God takes his time? The Bible constantly tells us to wait. Sometimes God will push us and move quickly, but waiting is good despite the contrary. Don’t let the mentality of a microwave society get you out of the will of God.

Slow down, pray, seek God’s face and wait on the LORD. The LORD promised a blessing in his Word when we wait on him, and guess what? God knows what’s best!

Read the following scriptures:

Isa 30:18  Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him. 

Isa 40:31  But those who wait on the LORD 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. 

Psa 27:14  Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD! 

Psa 37:7  Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. 

Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

2Pe 3:8  But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 
2Pe 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 

God bless! Pastor Quinn
