Wait With Hope

Wait with hope for the Lord. Be strong, and let your heart be courageous. Yes, wait with hope for the Lord.

Psalms 27:14 GW

We wait for the Lord. He is our help and our shield.

In him our hearts find joy. In his holy name we trust.

Let your mercy rest on us, O Lord, since we wait with hope for you.

Psalms 33:20‭-‬22 GW

Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Do not be preoccupied with ⌊an evildoer⌋ who succeeds in his way when he carries out his schemes.

Psalms 37:7 GW

Pursue the inner life.

The outward will wear out and fade away.

Everything on the outside, the exterior, the skin, will return to dust and ashes.

Everything we acquire, achieve, accomplish, will be forgotten a generation from now.

The world and its passions are passing away.

What then?

Where is life to be found?

Go inside.

Take shelter in the Lord.

Hide yourself in Him.

Find peace and rest for your souls in His Presence.

We are not defined by what we do.

We are not defined by what we possess.

What we wear.

What we eat.

What we drink.

We are defined by who we are.

We are a people of faith.

We believe that Jesus Christ is Messiah.

That’s our identity.

Believers.

We believe.

We believe that His grace is sufficient.

We believe His blood paid the price.

We believe He’s coming back again.

So we wait.

Expectantly.

With hope.

For the Lord’s return.

Pursue the inner life.

Find healing for your weary souls.

Activity is a poor substitute for serenity.

Rest in the Lord.

Find healing for your bones.

Take shelter in Him.

And wait.

And do not lose faith.

Those who endure until the end will be saved.

May His grace, mercy, and peace be yours in abundance this day.

In the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I pray.

Amen.

I won’t be in the world much longer, but they are in the world, and I’m coming back to you. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name, the name that you gave me, so that their unity may be like ours.

John 17:11 GW
