Word for the day “Wait on the Lord”

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

Often the reason we at times do not see or feel the Lord; is that we are not waiting on the Lord. We are still on our own timetable and we are still moving rapidly ahead of God and hoping He will catch up to our plans. But that is not how God works. He doesn’t change just because we are fickle and He does not hurry just because we are impatient.

Sisters and brothers, I do not doubt that your trial is real, that your burden is heavy, or that your discouragement is deep. But please keep your eyes upon this promise, wrap your mind around this word: when we wait courageously on the Lord, He will strengthen our hearts. God is never late and He is never insufficient concerning you and me!

What will the future bring? Wait on the Lord. When will this sorrow end? Wait on the Lord. How can I survive this ordeal? Wait on the Lord. How should I handle this decision? Wait on the Lord. The answer echoes through the heart of time and from the soundboard of millions of satisfied saints. Wait, I say, on the Lord.

The trial may not go away tomorrow, but neither will the strength that God has promised to give you. The pain may not diminish, but neither will the Lord’s grace. How about whatever it is in your life just “Wait on the Lord”! Love each one of you reading this Word today!
