WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD
except by: Tiffany Thibault
Wait patiently for the Lord. Often, we pray for people and situations over and over again, waiting for an answer that never seems to come. This verse not only tells us to wait patiently for the Lord, but then it says that we are to be brave and courageous. We have been living in very scary times of late and bravery and courage is what will help us get through these times because we are brave enough to wait on the Lord. We are courageous enough to rely solely on Him.
We are to be brave. We can choose to be brave in the moment of crisis without fear. In those painful and difficult situations that come our way, we must wait for the Lord to answer our prayers. He has before and we can be confident that He will do so once again.
We are to be courageous as we confront our painful and difficult situations, even as we struggle with fear in the midst of it. Courage means making the determination in your mind that you will face your difficulties head-on. You can have that courage, because you know that you have God on your side. It says in Jeremiah 32:27 “Nothing is too difficult for me.”
Psalm 27:14 says “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” It not only tells us to wait patiently for the Lord, but it states it two times! Regardless of the situation, regardless of the level of fear that we have, we are to wait patiently for the Lord to do what He will do. That posture of waiting is probably the most important thing that we can do in our lives.
So, step aside and let God be God. If we can give him the opportunity to move in both our lives and in the lives of others, it could turn out to be the most amazing thing ever!
