Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!
This is such a great Psalm – I just love the Psalms!!!
Psalm 27 – verse be verse:
- We have nothing to fear – because God is our light, salvation & strength
- Our enemies are unsuccessful – they stumble and fall – because of God
- We have confidence – not fear
- Here is a key – we must desire to seek God daily!!!
- He will hide us and set us on high – HIS protection
- We will be lifted above our enemies – safety… sing praises to GOD!!!
- He has mercy on us and will answer our prayers.
- Say “yes” to seeking after God
- He is there – He will never leave nor forsake us
- HE will take care of us
- He will teach us HIS way – and lead us
- He will protect us
- God is good, HE is a living GOD
After all of this protection, love, goodness from the LORD we come to verse 14:
- We need to wait on the LORD – we need to rest in HIM, knowing that HE WILL take care of us
- We need to be of good courage – we are waiting on HIM, trusting that HE WILL take care of us
- We need to draw our strength from the LORD – HE WILL strengthen our heart – HE IS the source of our courage
- We need to wait on the LORD…
Where do you draw your strength from??? Job – money??? Friends / Family???
Or from GOD – the only ONE who CAN give you true strength???
Are you courageous??? Are you waiting on GOD – the one who is there for you???
Are you waiting on the LORD??? We have nothing to fear with God on our side!!!
