Psalm 37: 5-9

"Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you.
He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.
Stop your anger! Turn from your rage! Do not envy others ~ it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land."
Psalm 37: 5-9

There are days when what I share is exactly what God wants me to hear. Today is one of those days. Please stop reading what I write...go again to the Word of God and read HIS words of hope, promise, and love to you today. Go with God...Go in God...let Him lead your way today so you may trust in Him and one day possess the land.

Psalm 27:14

"Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage." Psalm 27:14

That first word is probably the hardest word for many of us to hear....wait. We don't wait for anything. Red lights are too long, dial-up internet connections are dinosaurs, Postal Service mail is termed "snail mail," having to wait in line at a grocery store makes people angry, and if fast food takes longer than 1.5 minutes to get to our window through the drive through we're upset. Yet the Lord says, wait.

Are we looking to God the same way we look to our society? Do we expect our prayers to be answered instantaneously because we said them on the go between stops? Or do we truly STOP to sit in His presence, pour out our lives for Him to do what He will, and then take the time to listen to Him? strong...take courage. In His time we will see glory. In His time we will find and hear the answers we need. It is when we seek Him with all our hearts, souls, mind and strength that He reveals Himself to us. strong...take courage.
