Psalm 27:14 NIV
Wait for the Lord ;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord .
Have you ever had to wait? Ask for something and had to wait to get it? Did you enjoy it? I have to be honest…I do not like to wait…such a downfall for me. I have come to learn that my test is patience, and I don’t have a lot of that it seems. Hmmm…( since this is my test, how am I going to explain this to the drama team during Bible study hmm)
Have you ever asked God for something, and maybe expect it then. I have, and I still do…I have had a need before God for four years now. I have longed, prayed, cried, fasted, stood in prayer lines, received spoken prophesy, and put action behind my faith, and yet I wait. It’s been so hard not to give up. I do have to admit, I have gotten down hearted before. Sometimes I have to remind myself not to question God, that all comes in His timing.
I want to encourage you today to not give up. Hold on to that request you have before the Lord. To press on and cling to your prayers. It may seem like its taking forever or that God has forgotten. He hasn’t and just when your about to give up, the blessing or answer is right around the corner!
God Bless You,
Have you ever felt like you couldn’t do something? Felt like you wouldn’t make it through a trial or a test? Maybe it was a test of patience, or maybe a school assignment. I’ve felt like that many times. I’m actually going through it now, my own test of patience.
But I have an answer for all that down heartedness! We CAN!
For the Bible tells us, I can do All things through Christ which strengthens me~ Philippians 4:13.
So I want to encourage you today to know that you can make it, you can face it, that crowd, that test, that assignment, whatever it is, we will get our strength, from the one who bore it all for you and me!
Have a blessed day!

Wait patiently for the LORD.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the LORD~
Psalm 27:14 NLT
Wait….such a small word that packs a huge meaning.
What does it mean to wait? It means to stand and let God work! It means to stand and let God move, answer, bless, heal, do what His will is for our problem and our life. It means to stand and be patient, to seek out God and be strong and courageous in your prayers, seeking, and your walk.
Its hard because this old flesh just wants to rise up and fix what we have asked God to fix and help in, but if we seek Him, pray, and Listen for His answers, He will answer right on time!
Let’s stand and be courageous, and wait patiently for the Lord!
