How many times have you taken matters into your own hands? How many times have you asked God to do something, help you with something…only to give up and do it yourself
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve stepped up and out, when I should have sat down and stepped back.
I’ve decided that us women like things done, and done yesterday. At least for me. Waiting and having patience is NOT part of my DNA…yet God asks us to WAIT…be still. Allow Him.
Psalm 52:9I will give You thanks forever, because You have done it, And I will wait on Your name, for it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones.
Psalm 62:1 My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation.
Psalm 62:5 My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.
Genesis 49:18 “For Your salvation I wait, O LORD.
Psalm 33:20 Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.
Psalm 27:14 Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
Psalm 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 carries out wicked schemes.
Psalm 37:9 For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.
Wait, wait in silence, wait on, wait for…I sense a theme here, David! I love the Psalms. Many times in my life I’ve turned to them, and have found one that echos my hearts longings. David is always good to remind me (us) to turn to God. Wait on Him. Rely on His right hand to reach down and touch my life, in His timing.
So….here’s to waiting on the Lords timing, not my own. The Lords will, not my own. The Lords truth, and not my own (or this worlds).
What are you seeking from God, that you need to wait on, with patience and endurance?
