“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.

“Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!” -Psalm 27:14

God often calls us to wait for His promises.

Noah – 120 yrs for promised rain

Abraham – 25 yrs for the promised son

Joseph – 22 yrs for the promised dream

Simeon – his whole life for promised Messiah

What promise are you trusting God for?

He may seem slow, but He’s faithful

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 27:1-12
Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! -Psalm 27:14

David was feeling like God had forgotten about him. He was depressed, stopped serving, and went into survival mode, seeking only self-preservation.

When you’re depressed, go to a friend who trusts in the Lord. Ask that friend to pray with you and for you. Confide in them and get their perspective of where you are. Don’t be quick to make a decision when you’re depressed. Pray and ponder. Most importantly, wait on the Lord.

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”  -Psalm 27:14

(from Dayspring Writer Holley Gerth’s blog)

Waiting…

It’s early Monday morning and I’m waiting in the airport to catch a flight to Texas. I tried taking a picture to post here but all I got was an odd-looking fake tree and a few haggard travelers. Mark and I are sharing a large cup of Starbuck’s coffee. I just got lipstick on the rim, which drives him nuts. I had to get up at 5am so I’m feeling grouchy. We’ll be fine by 10.

Another reason I’m feeling grouchy is that waiting seems to bring out that side of me. Are you like that too? I have waited for several “flights” in my life–getting married, finding a job, having kids (still in the airport on that one). I once wrote about that and here’s part of what I said…

Imagine expecting to arrive in Hong Kong and stepping off your plane to discover you’re in Australia instead. That’s exactly what happened to one woman who boarded the wrong plane at the Los Angeles airport. Due to a computer error, no one knew she took another flight. She got on board, found a seat, and didn’t realize her travel plans had drastically changed until the plane landed in a different country.

All of us experience situations in life like the one described above. You think you’re taking the nonstop flight to your dreams, and next thing you know you’re stranded in a strange land you never intended to visit.  You’re not quite sure how you got there, when you’ll be leaving, or what in the world to do in the meantime.

While you may not be where you want to be, you don’t have to be there alone. And whether or not you chose your detour, you can choose to make it a time of healing and growth that changes the rest of your journey…

Has anyone else ever feel like they unexpectedly hopped on that flight to Australia? I have!! While waiting may not be my favorite thing to do, I’ve discovered there can be unexpected blessings in those times. That doesn’t make it easier…but it does help to know God is working to make sure I won’t be boarding the plane empty-handed when the time comes.

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:14 NIV
