Wait on the Lord!

psalm27_14Psalm 27:14(NLT), “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”

Have you ever found yourself waiting on the Lord?

Are you in a waiting position right now?

How does it feel?

The NKJV of the bible says the verse like this:

Psalm 27:14, “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

The Lord is telling us that we should wait patiently on Him! That we should have courage and be brave, and during our waiting season He will strengthen our heart (the core of our being)!

God knows that there will be a time or times in our lives where He will put us in a season of waiting. This is when He is preparing us to carry out a plan and purpose that He has designed just for us. This season of waiting is usually filled with challenges or even just doing absolutely nothing, or sometimes both. In this season, you will encounter many different emotions that will either strengthen your faith, or cause you to give up on you faith and let go of your hope and trust in God.

Can I tell you this: when sitting in a season of waiting, use that time to reflect back on the goodness of God and all He has done for you so far, and continue focusing on the mark that you are trying to reach. Don’t allow the enemy to come into your mind and steal your dream and your hope in God. Remember that the enemy is always roaming around seeking who he can devour (Job 1:7), and who he can bring over to his side.

When we read Psalm 27:14, we see that God gives a command to us, with instructions and a promise.

Look at His command as the vision that He gave you for the thing that you are waiting on. (Wait on the Lord!)

His instruction is to be brave and of good courage. (Draw strength from prayer and praise!)

And His promise is that He will strengthen your heart as you wait. (Have confidence that He will do just that!)

Waiting on God is not easy, especially if you are either excited about the vision that He gave you or you are just plain impatient like me. When we wait, it can feel like God does not want to answer our prayers, and we begin to have that feeling of neglect and being overlooked by our Savior.

Waiting can be God’s way of slowing us down, which will allow us to take the focus off of ourselves, and totally rely on God to work the plan and purpose that He has for us to carry out. And once we slow down and wait for Him to make the next move, then we have every reason to glorify Him and not ourselves, because then we will begin to see His ultimate plan for us unfold.

What do you find your self doing during your waiting time? (suggestion: read the word/pray)

Have you ever had somewhere to go, and to get there you had to sit and wait on a bus, a plane or even a person, and it seemed to be taking forever for it or them to arrive?

What is your reaction at a time like this?

What will you do the next time you find yourself in a season of waiting? (suggest: be patient, be brave and courageous, and know that your heart is being strengthen by God, so put your hope in Him!)

Psalm 31:24 says “So be strong and take courage, all you who put your hope in the Lord!”

Be Blessed By His Word,

  • Hi b: I’m glad you enjoyed the article. I too am in a loooonnnnnggggg season of waiting. But God!! He is a “renewer” of our strength!! He gives us new mercies every day so that we don’t have to sit and worry over when our season of waiting will come to an end. He preoccupies our time with other kingdom duties and maturing and preparing us in the meantime so that when our season comes we will be ripe and ready for it!!!!! Continue being blessed in your waiting, knowing that God is definitely in control……as you wait meditate on these scriptures: Psalms 84:11 Proverbs 3:5-6 Jeremiah 29:11-14, Isaiah 40:31 Philippians 4:6-9 James 1:2-4
    Be blessed in the Lord always……

    So sorry for the delay in our response, we have been on vacation for the holidays. We will be happy to pray for you.

    Dear heavenly Father,

    I come before you in Jesus name standing in the gap for my sister. I asked that you would encourage her heart and let her know that from deep within that you are most certainly with her and that you have not left or forsaken her. Give her the endurance she needs to perserve in this season. Draw her close to you in your Word. Reveal yourself to her and may she be filled with hopeful expectation, love, and faith. I trust what you are doing in my sister’s life and I know that you have wonderful plans for her. Let her realize this too. In Jesus name I pray…Amen!
