Word of the Day.... May 10, 2013

My soul waits in silence for God only;

From Him is my salvation. Psalm 62:1

The secret to waiting upon the Lord is a very important one for us to learn.  Yet I believe that it is one of the most difficult ones for us to learn.  We live in an instant society.  We want everything right NOW!  God always seems to move much slower than we would like Him to.

Abraham was waiting for God for years to fulfill a promise that he had made to him to give him and Sarah a son.  Finally when they had reached their nineties, they had decided that they had waited long enough and decided to “help” God. They decided that it would be best to have Abraham impregnate Hagar Sarah’s servant.  We can all see what a mess that turned out to be.

God had a better plan. He tells us that "I know the plans I have for you and they are good" (Jeremiah 29:11) It is just that His timing is not ours.  Wait upon the Lord.  For it is when we rest in the Lord and leave everything in His hands, we will be blessed!!!
