wait on Him… Psalm 27:14…

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27:14 ESV

wait… to stay in place in expectation of: await… to remain stationary in readiness or expectation…

—Merriam-Webster.com

Wait… we wait with expectation of something…
waiting in a doctor’s office…
waiting in line for the barista…
waiting for a loved one to arrive…
waiting to go out for the evening…

We wait because something is going to happen…
something is coming… and we are ready…

Sometimes the wait is longer than expected…
sometimes we become discouraged and give up… leave…
sometimes… it seems like nothing is going to happen…

So when the wait is long…
moving our eyes to the Lord…
gives strength…
encouragement of heart…
helps us endure…
when we don’t the exact arrival time…

I’m doing some waiting today…
waiting to see how it will all get done…
waiting to get my mishap made right…
and it feels a little overwhelming…
because I can’t see how it can all happen…

But when I remember… I’m waiting on Him…
the One who wouldn’t call me to do something and not make the way…
the One who knows what’s next and how it will all fit in…
the One who is my Shepherd who will not leave me wanting…
and remember He is the Sovereign One…
who works out all things…
for the good of those who love Him…
who are called according to His purpose…

Then… my heart stills… expectation rises… and wonder creeps in…

Wait… expect Him to move…
He will…
with just what you need…
