Eternal Rock of ages, we bow before Your Throne of Mercy and of grace. We are grateful unto You Alone Who is worthy of our praise. Thank You this day, Lord, thank You Most Gracious Father. Let all glory, let all honour, let all adorations be unto You Alone Who is worthy of our Praise, for ever more.
Beloved, our Saviour shall reign forever more, He shall reign for ever more. In my life, in your life, the Lord shall reign, over your business, over your children, over career, over your circumstance, there is nothing too difficult for Him to do. He is the Maker of heaven and earth, so why do you fear? Praise the Lord, somebody?
The Lord is Faithful in all situation, why do you fret? We fret because we are limited, we are not Omnipresence, neither are we Omnipotent, but beloved, our Father is. He is the Mighty One in battle.
What is that raging storms in your life, that sickness that has defers solutions, that child that has wandered away from home and refuse to come back. Take it to the Lord.
The Lord is saying wait upon me and I will show you great and mighty things which thou knoweth not. Wait patiently for the Lord, He will show us His grace at the due time:
Wait for the Lord;
be courageous and let your heart be strong.
Wait for the Lord.—Psalm 27:14
Waiting is one of the hardest things to do. We want to be people of action. We feel better if we are doing something to address our need, but waiting forces us to rely on God. David learned what it meant to wait. He was chosen by God to be the next king of Israel, then spent years waiting for the day God’s word would come to pass in his life.
As he waited, a paranoid, egocentric king occupied the throne that had been promised to him. David spent his time hiding in caves and living among his enemies. As he waited he saw good friends murdered and his family and possessions taken. He saw Israel’s enemies wreak havoc on his nation. Perhaps no one ever faced greater adversity while waiting upon God’s promise than David did. He certainly understood what it meant to become discouraged and fearful.
But David also enjoyed the reward for waiting upon the Lord. He became the greatest king in Israel’s history, and, more importantly, through his trials he became a man after God’s own heart. The psalms David wrote during his days as a fugitive have been cherished words of encouragement for millions of people through the ages. Through David’s descendants came the Messiah. David’s willingness to wait has blessed us all.
Times of waiting on the Lord can be some of the most precious moments in your life (John 11:1–6). If you are waiting on God for something, read Isaiah 40:31 and find encouragement as you wait for Him to fulfill His promises to you.
Beloveth, it pays to wait on Lord, the grace to wait we ask of Thee O! Lord this day in Jesus Name. Amen! Lead us in thy Truth and teach us to know You better for You are our God:
“Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me: for Thou art the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day.” Psalm 25:5
When the believer has begun with trembling feet to walk in the way of the Lord, he asks to be still led onward like a little child upheld by its parent’s helping hand, and he craves to be further instructed in the alphabet of truth. Experimental teaching is the burden of this prayer. David knew much, but he felt his ignorance, and desired to be still in the Lord’s school: four times over in two verses he applies for a scholarship in the college of grace.
It were well for many professors if instead of following their own devices, and cutting out new paths of thought for themselves, they would enquire for the good old ways of God’s own truth, and beseech the Holy Ghost to give them sanctified understandings and teachable spirits. “For thou art the God of my salvation.” The Three-One Jehovah is the Author and Perfecter of salvation to His people.
Reader, is He the God of your salvation? Do you find in the Father’s election, in the Son’s atonement, and in the Spirit’s quickening, all the grounds of your eternal hopes? If so, you may use this as an argument for obtaining further blessings; if the Lord has ordained to save you, surely He will not refuse to instruct you in His ways. It is a happy thing when we can address the Lord with the confidence which David here manifests, it gives us great power in prayer, and comfort in trial.
“On Thee do I wait all the day.” Patience is the fair handmaid and daughter of faith; we cheerfully wait when we are certain that we shall not wait in vain. It is our duty and our privilege to wait upon the Lord in service, in worship, in expectancy, in trust all the days of our life. Our faith will be tried faith, and if it be of the true kind, it will bear continued trial without yielding. We shall not grow weary of waiting upon God if we remember how long and how graciously He once waited for us.
Beloved, the patient to wait let us pray earnestly from God. often times we talk about faith in God and we forget about patience. When things fail to manifest the way we have willed and planned it, we loose our head, our heart goes fainting and our feet trembles for the fear that God would have forsaken us.
Wait patiently for Him though it tarries, He will surely come. Am speaking to that man that woman whose vision seem as if it is tarring, do not give up, it will surely come, though it tarries. Engage in whatsoever your hands findeth to do and at the right time the vision will speak forth. Do not lose hope for your Redeemer liveth.
Praise the Lord.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
