Beloveth is a brand new year with so much of God’s blessings all around us, all we need to do is to tap into God’s available grace for us to run this race set before us this year for we knew nobody can go far without Christ backing Him up. Therefore, the need for us to wait upon the Lord, “for those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength and shall do exploits” in the Lord!
Beloveth, we need to take out time at the beginning of this year to seek the face of God, though He has a plan for us but we need to pray and birth the plan. We must not be complacent in the place of prayer; we must engage properly and profitable too.
The strength of the Lord can accomplish for us far more than we can ever imagine. I came across a book tilted Divine Time management and the Lord has been instructing me through that book recently.
In our dealing with God the chief ingredient is “TRUST” – Trust is defined as a “firm belief in the reliability, truth or ability of someone or something.” The word is used over 150 times in the Bible. One of the central themes in the Bible is trust in the Lord. when people in the Bible trusted God, they experienced His best. When they trusted in anything other than God, they didn’t. (Jer 17:7-8) promises these blessings for those who trust in the Lord:
But bless is the One who trust in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him, they are like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
So waiting on God is as good as trusting in Him. You can only wait in whom you trust.
Beloveth let us wait upon the Lord so that our strength will be renewed to do exploit, come on for more:
“Let the people renew their strength.” Isaiah 41:1
All things on earth need to be renewed. No created thing continueth by itself. “Thou renewest the face of the year,” was the Psalmist’s utterance. Even the trees, which wear not themselves with care, nor shorten their lives with labour, must drink of the rain of heaven and suck from the hidden treasures of the soil.
The cedars of Lebanon, which God has planted, only live because day by day they are full of sap fresh drawn from the earth. Neither can man’s life be sustained without renewal from God. As it is necessary to repair the waste of the body by the frequent meal, so we must repair the waste of the soul by feeding upon the Book of God, or by listening to the preached Word, or by the soul-fattening table of the ordinances.
How depressed are our graces when means are neglected! What poor starvelings some saints are who live without the diligent use of the Word of God and secret prayer! If our piety can live without God it is not of divine creating; it is but a dream; for if God had begotten it, it would wait upon Him as the flowers wait upon the dew.
Without constant restoration we are not ready for the perpetual assaults of hell, or the stern afflictions of heaven, or even for the strifes within. When the whirlwind shall be loosed, woe to the tree that hath not sucked up fresh sap, and grasped the rock with many intertwisted roots.
When tempests arise, woe to the mariners that have not strengthened their mast, nor cast their anchor, nor sought the haven. If we suffer the good to grow weaker, the evil will surely gather strength and struggle desperately for the mastery over us; and so, mayhap, a painful desolation, and a lamentable disgrace may follow.
Let us draw near to the footstool of divine mercy in humble entreaty, and we shall realize the fulfillment of the promise, “They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.”
As Christians, we often think to ask God for help when it comes to big decisions such as which Job to take, where to move, or whether to marry someone. But we can often forget to ask God to lead us by the hand in the day-to-day details of our lives.
Let us invest in our relationship with God by spending daily time in bible study and prayer as a way to connect with your heavenly Father and give Him any burdens you bear. Let us learn to rest in God by taking off a Sabbath day off each week and other times of rest as an act of trust in God’s care for you.
Beloveth let us trust God enough to take care of us by waiting on Him while we listen to Him for His directives where He lead us His grace will be sufficient for us. Praise the Lord.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
