Lamentations 3:26 NKJV — It is good that one should hope and wait quietly For the salvation of the LORD.
It’s one of the most difficult things to do.
But in the case of our salvation, it’s a pleasure and privilege.
Because we don’t earn our salvation.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV — Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
We can simply wait upon the Lord Jesus.
Because He provides all our needs.
He has given us His Word.
It’s a wonderful gift which brings us knowledge, understanding, and hope.
He has blessed us with salvation, when we believe and trust in Jesus Christ.
Psalm 68:19 KJV — Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
We even have the Holy Spirit to guide and direct our hearts.
Acts 2:38 NKJV — Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
John 14:26 NKJV — “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
Thus, we can live unto the Lord, with confident expectation and quiet waiting.
2 Timothy 4:5 NKJV — But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Our patient endurance will be rewarded, one day Christ will return!
Isaiah 40:31 KJV — 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.
Praise the Lord!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for salvation! Lord, please continue to teach me how to walk in Your Word daily, waiting quietly upon You in all things. I know often I get distracted and worried by many things and I get tangled up in trying to do things on my own instead of humbling myself and waiting upon You. Lord, I do not want to continue in that. Please help me to recognize when I am, that I might return to trusting and waiting upon You. Thank You for Your love, Your mercy, Your faithfulness, and Your grace.
