What does it mean to wait upon the Lord?
– It is to enter into a trust relationship with God.
It is to – rest in Him and surrender our will to Him. —
We can have complete confidence in Him
We trust Him on the basis of our personal acquaintances with Him;
The promises of His Word and past experiences with Him.
“We have nothing to fear for the future,
except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us….
and His teachings in our past history.” (Life Sketches p 296)
Prayer is having a relationship – our waiting time in contact with God.
Making that time to talk and listen to God.
Be willing to wait on the Lord-
To listen to His still small voice- to lead and direct our lives.
Do not run before Him- He has a plan for you and me.
To say – Not my will, but Thine be done.
This is a wonderful promise-
“But those who WAIT on 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
