Wait on the Lord
Psalms 27:14 - Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
When we read this scripture which talks about waiting on the Lord, we consider this waiting as lying on back and taking it easy - waiting. The waiting this scripture is talking about is not a patient waiting but an impatient waiting. It is an intensive waiting which the Lord asks us to take.
How are we to take this intensive waiting?
If we read the previous lines of this scripture the psalmist says -
Psalms 27:13 - I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
The words 'I had fainted' are added to the original text to make it easy to read. So if we read just the original text, it says 'unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living'.
We all know in Heaven it will be a blessed living, but the Psalmist takes an aggressive stance and wants to see it now in this world. That is the kind of waiting we are supposed to take; an eager, relentless and full of expectation waiting.
For this we need to have strength (good courage) and the Lord will help increase our strength further till we receive our deliverance.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are the Living God and all things abide by You. I too live because of You and everything about me and around me is by your knowledge. Let your light shine upon me and all things connected to me, so that it may receive your healing. Lord I am eager to see your glory and according to your Word I know I will see it. Strengthen me that I may not faint in my waiting to see your glory shine in me. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
