Wait on the Lord!
“Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!” – Psalm 27:14
Hey friends! Thank you, again, for reading and subscribing to my blog. I appreciate your show of love and support. And I appreciate you!!
Are you tired? Weary? Discouraged? Faint of heart? If you are, I want to encourage you. We all become discouraged and weary of our lots in life, at times. Situations can bring stumbling blocks in our way and cause us dismay.
But I have good news for you: it doesn’t have to stay that way! The Lord wants us to be patient in our trials. Remember what the psalmist penned: “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:14)!
If we put our trust in God and wait on Him to deliver us from our troubles, He will strengthen us and give us courage anew.
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.” – Isaiah 40:28-29
God is not like us. He doesn’t tire out or become weary. He has the encouragement that we need. God will exalt those who wait on Him (Psalm 37:34). Those who wait on the Lord are blessed (Isaiah 30:18). “It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord” (Lamentations 3:26).
“But those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31
I love the encouragement that the scriptures provide. We have hope, friends! That hope is found in Jesus Christ. We don’t have to remain weary. We don’t have to stay discouraged, tired, or drained of energy. The Lord will renew our strength. And we will no longer be weary or faint.
Are you waiting on the Lord? Is He Lord of your life? If He isn’t, all you have to do is obey Him, and He will be. Believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God (John 8:24). Repent of your sins (Luke 13:3). Confess that Jesus is Lord (Matthew 10:32-33). And be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins (Mark 16:16). Then you’ll have the Lord on your side when you face obstacles in life.
Wait on the Lord! He will lift you up.
