Conviction · Failure · Fear of man · Trust · Wait on Him

wait on him… Psalm 33:20-21…

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.
Psalm 33:20-21 ESV
Because He is our help and shield in the waiting…
our hearts are glad Him…
because we trust Him…

While we wait for Him…
to fulfill His promise…
work good from evil…
return to make things right…
we do so with joy…
because He is trustworthy…
He helps us along the way…
He shields us from so much…
most of it unknown to us…

And I wonder at the fear that overtakes my heart…
when the young man on the phone asks… Do you have any other questions for me…?
and His Spirit says… Ask Him if He knows Jesus…
and even though this young man is in Canada…
my heart clenches… the question goes unasked…
instead I end the call with… May the Lord bless you and keep you…

Wimped out…
I totally wimped out…

Conviction now clenches my heart instead of fear of man…

My unbelief and doubt in the waiting still so great…!

I’m such a bad waiter…
not serving the Lord well…
because I don’t believe He is my help… my shield…

Lord… forgive me… I’ve failed again…
Thank You for your grace… Let me not forget Your conviction…
Bless me with another opportunity… and fearless faith…
