Waiting for God

03 Mar

Lamentations 3:22-24
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”

Never get the idea that God is just waiting for us to mess up so that He can strike us down.  It is just the opposite.  He is looking out for our best.  The Lord wants each of us to experience the ultimate fulfillment in life.

To bring this about, He walks with us, guiding us each day – showing us compassion and faithfulness.  Let’s face it, if it were God’s goal to judge us, He would not have to wait long for us to make a mistake.  Each one of us has a personal history such that if He wanted to, the Lord could lock us in Hell and throw away the key.

The fact is, God has proven His intent through the death and resurrection of Christ.  He loved us enough to go to the cross.  He wouldn’t have done that if He was intent on condemning us.

Come to God today in a spirit of expectancy.  Be ready to hear and obey His plans for your life.  Wait on Him in the stillness of trust and dependancy.  Spend some time just listening for that still, small voice inside you.  It will be well worth your time.
