Psalm 27:14 NKJV — Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!
The past several days have been a wonderful experience of walking in this verse.
God has taken me through many circumstances and with each day, sometimes each hour, I’m being able to learn what waiting on Him looks like.
Sometimes it meant taking the rest my body requires.
Which is difficult, I don’t enjoy telling people, “I’m sorry I can’t…”.
Yet, God supplied all my needs.
Sometimes, it meant doing what needs to be done no matter how I feel.
I didn’t enjoy trying to navigate a doctor’s appointment with a migraine, but I was able to get through it.
God provided exactly the amount of energy I needed.
Sometimes, it has meant doing all God has asked and continuing in tasks at hand.
Which has been amazing, being able to accomplish tasks, feeling good and working hard.
But, I know from past experience, to keep praying, for it’s easy to overdo when I’m feeling good.
All the time, it means listening carefully to the Lord and waiting upon His direction instead of going my own way or leading by my own desires.
Because of this, I’m being blessed with all I need.
As well as stretching me to relinquish my desires and opinions.
(Neither of which come easy. Just ask my husband, I have lots of both!)
It’s been an amazing journey and I’m praying it continues.
I want this walk, this way of living, to become my normal.
To wait for God’s direction and be quickly obedient once it’s given.
I want to be used by the Lord, daily.
I want my own will to be surrendered to Him completely.
It’s a place I’ve been wanting to walk in for a long time and I can see how the Lord has used my past to help me grow in this direction.
I’m so thankful to God for His patient tutelage.
Wherever, you are with your walk with Jesus, I pray you are learning how to wait on Him as well.
For I know God is faithful, His Word is truth.
Psalm 37:34 KJV — Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your faithfulness. Lord, I’m so glad You are teaching me how to wait upon You, how to live in surrender to Your direction. Lord, I am often stiff-necked and my flesh harbors rebellion. Lord, please continue to help me to relinquish every part into Your hands. Lord, please continue to hone me that I might honor You with my life. Thank You, Jesus for Your patience. Amen.
