Wait on the Lord and be of good courage; for He will strengthen your heart. Ps.27v.14
In 1979 or '78, I was overseas and in a terrible mess - mostly of my own making. Have you even been there? I had blown a golden academic opportunity - and the money that went with it. - But I had a little Bible in the side pocket of my suitcase. I had never taken it out before, but that day I did and somehow I found this verse. Or the verse found me. Suddenly I remembered. It was a song sung in the church I'd grown up in: Wait on the Lord and be of good courage, wait on the Lord and be of good courage; wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart.
God gave me a miracle of deliverance out of my pigpen. As I prayed early today and heard this same scripture for you, all of this came back to my mind. Desperation at Christmas can be more than not finding the right computer game or sweater size. I am hearing WAIT, WAIT, WAIT,WAIT,- Just wait. We are all facing situations whose final, fatal fall requires us to wait on God. Waiting on Him is not a sign of weakness, but of strength. Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength!
FATHER: I WAIT ON YOU & I AM STRONG! I WILL GET IT ALL BACK!
