If we can wait for,and on people, why not wait on God. Waiting upon the Lord is never in VAIN
+Are we ready and equipped for the things we are waiting for from God???
Isaiah 40:31 says:
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.
+Many times there are conditions we need to meet in order to get God’s blessings.
+What God does in us while we wait upon Him sometimes it is more important than the things we asked for.
+We need Growth, Development, Equipping, Preparation and Maturation.
+This is needed to be Good Stewards of THINGS we waiting for from God.
Psalm 27:14 tells us to,WAIT on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
“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”. (Psalms 37:7 NKJV)
“I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth— Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the Lord”. (Psalms 40:1-3 NKJV).
“My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him”. (Psalms 62:5 NKJV).
+It’s worth the wait. Don’t quit.
+Whenever we are waiting upon the Lord,Patience and Long-suffering must be exercised.
Patience and Long-suffering,is the capacity to accept and tolerate delay, trouble, persecutions, sufferings and such like things without getting angry or upset. But instead we must deal with the situation gracefully in Love, Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith.
+This is not something we can do on our own. We need the help of God.
As Philippians 4:13 KJVS,tells us that,we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us. Therefore, we must elevate our Faith to the supernatural level, and do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
Then Philippians 2:13 KJVS,reminds us that
it is God Who works us both to will and to do of his good pleasure. wow! Isn’t that awesome.
“So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word”. (Hebrews 10:23 AMPC)
+So Avail yourself to always do whats right, and by the work of the Holy Spirit in you, you will always Prevail.
“Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]– To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it). [Jude 1:24-25 AMPC]
• So Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
