“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” -Psalm 27:14

Wait! Wait! Let your waiting be on the Lord! He is worth waiting for. He never disappoints the waiting soul.

While waiting keep up your spirits, Expect a great deliverance, and be ready to praise God for it.

The promise which should cheer you is in the middle of the verse—”He shall strengthen thine heart.” This goes at once to the place where you need help. If the heart be sound, all the rest of the system will work well. The heart wants calming and cheering, and both of these will come if it be strengthened. A forceful heart rests and rejoices and throbs force into the whole man.

No one else can get at that secret urn of life, the heart, so as to pour strength into it. He alone who made it can make it strong. God is full of strength, and, therefore, He can impart it to those who need it. Oh, be brave; for the Lord will impart His strength to you, and you shall be calm in tempest and glad in sorrow.

He who penned these lines can write as David did—”Wait, I say, on the Lord.” I do, indeed, say it. I know by long and deep experience that it is good for me to wait upon the Lord.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.26.2020

“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.” -Hebrews 11:8

When you trust in the Lord, you are obedient to the Lord. There is a turning away from the old things that have passed away and — behold! — all things have become new.

When faith is based upon God’s promise, faith produces obedience.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 11:8-12“By Faith Abraham”

Scripture at Sunrise 10.19.2020

“And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.” -2 Chronicles 25:2

Amaziah’s heart was not right. He had godly actions, he did what was right in God’s sight, but his heart (attitude) was not devoted to God.

Service to the Lord our God comes from a heart of love to the Lord our God. The more you love Him, the more you desire to serve Him. If you serve God out of obligation, you will end up burnt out in serving Him.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 25:1-28 – “Right Thing, Wrong Heart“)

Scripture at Sunrise 6.19.2012

Let my heart be sound in thy statues: that I be not ashamed. -Psalm 119:80

We may regard this inspired prayer as containing within itself the assurance that those who keep close to the Word of God shall never have cause to be ashamed of doing so.

See, the prayer is for soundness of heart. A sound creed is good, a sound judgment concerning it is better, but a sound heart toward the truth is best of all. We must love the truth, feel the truth, and obey the truth, otherwise we are not truly sound in God’s statutes. Are there many in these evil days who are sound? Oh, that the writer and the reader may be two of this sort!

Many will be ashamed in the last great day, when all disputes will be decided. Then they will see the folly of their inventions and be filled with remorse because of their proud infidelity and willful defiance of the Lord; but he who believed what the Lord taught and did what the Lord commanded will stand forth justified in what he did. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun. Men much slandered and abused shall find their shame turned into glory in that day.

Let us pray the prayer of our text, and we may be sure that its promise will be fulfilled to us. If the Lord makes us sound, He will keep us safe.
