Wait … Wait … Wait

His Word is alive as it says in Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
Psalm 27:4 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
Isaiah 40:31 “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Psalm 25:4-5 “Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.”
You know it really doesn’t matter what God is asking me to “wait” on because I think He is telling me to just wait on His timing and sovereignty in…whatever. It’s in the waiting that I will find peace and strength.
I think I’ve been holding out on you Lord and need to lay a few more things at the foot of the cross. Teach me Lord and guide me in all my thoughts, ways and deeds because all my hope is in you.
