FEBRUARY 18 – Wait upon the Lord


FEBRUARY 18 – Wait upon the Lord

Psa 27:14  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. 

Does this imply confident expectation. One writer put it this way. “Wait at his door with prayer; wait at his foot with humility; wait at his table with service; wait at his window with expectancy.” There is never a request to wait upon the Lord in idleness.

Waiting on the Lord is busy while we wait for His guidance. Many things we have plain instruction that we can be busy with while we wait for specific direction from God in certain particulars. He will not fail us in His goodness to us or His guidance for us. God has His time for all things. “The Preacher” in Ecclesiastes says, “there is a time for everything.”

Knowing to wait on the Lord means we should show courage. There will be a direction and a task to be done. Our courage will will be increased because the promise is He shall strengthen thine heart. In our day and age great courage is needed. God will strengthen our heart for work He has for us.

To be in the Lords’ will, we must wait on Him.
