“Waiting on the Lord”
David knew that waiting on the Lord was not a bad place to be in.
In Psalms 62:5 he said, “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. So, waiting on the Lord is a good place to be in, because it puts you in a place of expectancy.
When you are truly waiting on the Lord, you are in a place of expectancy.
Expectancy – that which one can look forward to having; to consider due, certain or likely
Expectancy creates excitement in your life. Are you really looking forward to God doing a certain thing in your life? If so, you should be excited.
Lamentations 3:25-26 says, “The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.”
I want you to know that God is good to those who wait on Him. He will even strengthen those who wait on Him. Psalms 27:14 says, “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”
Waiting does not mean that you are inactive. It means that you are in a place of not giving up. When you give up, you are no longer waiting on Him.
Here is a closing thought to remember. Isaiah 64:4 says, “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by ear, neither hath eye seen, O God, beside thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him.”
Things are already made ready for those who are truly waiting on the Lord.
