wait on Him… Micah 7:5-7…

Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend;
guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms;
for the son treats the father with contempt,
the daughter rises up against her mother,
the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.
But as for me, I will look to the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation;
my God will hear me.
Micah 7:5-7 ESV
Who is worth waiting on… hoping in…?
Not your neighbor…
your friend…
your spouse…
your children…
your in-laws…
only God…
God alone delivers…
God alone is faithful…
Every person in your life will eventually let you down…
no person can save you…
Too often we put our trust in others…
trust which rightly belongs to God…
When He is our hope…
the One on which we wait…
we save ourselves a lot of grief…
For years… I found myself putting hope in my husband…
waiting on him… to keep me safe and secure…
looking to him… to make me content…
Finally God revealed this as idolatry…
He will never allow us to find security and peace in a person…
because He is the only One to fill that place in our lives…
Consider who you are waiting on… hoping in…
if it’s a person in your life… let it go…
love them… bless them…
but don’t put your hope in them…
Turn to God to fill the role of Savior… 
Confidant… 
Friend… 
in your life…
He’s waiting for you… to wait on Him…
