wait on Him… Psalm 37:5-7…

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out evil devices!
Psalm 37:5-7 ESV
Committing your way to the Lord’s Way…
can seem like the long way around…
His Way requires patience…
steadfastness… forbearance…
and integrity…
Those who follow His Way…
commit their lives to it…
look like fools to the world…
Following tax code to the letter of the law…
returning too much change…
humbly yielding to others…
telling the truth to your own detriment…
taking responsibility for your actions…
The world has its own wisdom…
get ahead no matter the cost…
look out for number one…
pay back is hell…
what they don’t know won’t hurt ’em…
James describes it this way…
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct
let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts,
do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that 
comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be
disorder and every vile practice.
James 3:13-16 ESV
When you’re tempted to do things the world’s way…
because it looks like the only way to get ahead…
remember… be still before the Lord…
wait patiently on Him…
For those committed to His Way…
will shine bright one day…
their righteousness and just actions…
cutting right through the darkness…
like the noonday sun…
His Way is the best…
His foolishness wiser than the wisest worldly wisdom…
and it is always… worth… the… wait…
