My dearly Beloved,
WAIT! Simply saying this word stops you in your tracks. What it actually means is donít move ahead till you get a signal to do so. The question now is do we have the patience to wait in this fast-paced world. However, you must realize the One who created the world is the same yesterday, today, and forever and when the Lord God Jehovah says wait, we might as well wait, instead of running ahead of Him.
The Bible says in Nehemiah 8:10 ď... the joy of the Lord is your strength". Did it ever strike you as to what could make our Lord so joyful that His joy would turn into our strength? When we unite to do the ministry of God and draw in millions of souls who are lost and seeking for a liberty from their bondage. We can do the same today. The secret of receiving an outpouring of the Lordís strength is pleasing Him in all that we do and placing our confidence in Him knowing that He fights our battles for us. The result, closed doors open, miracles, signs and wonders break forth from heaven wherever we go in the Lordís name.
Several years ago, when I was still new in the Lord and inexperienced in my spiritual life, I got an opportunity to share the Word of God at a Jesus Calls Good News Meeting. I did my part, prayed and went back and sat down on my chair and continued to pray with my eyes closed. However, while I was praying, when I was seated, a mother, without my knowledge, had placed her little child next to me hoping I would place my hands on him and pray, instead, I left the venue with the elders present there. The parents, who stood afar and watched me, were upset that I had not prayed for their child. However, after a few moments, the child rose up and walked towards the mother. I give praise to the Lord that He touched the child while I had fixed my heart and eyes on Him.
Beloved, remember no physical exercise can renew your spiritual strength but only when you wait on the Lord will it happen. So trust and obey Him for there is no way. Obey whatever He wants you to do. Trusting Him with whatever you cannot do in His way and in His time will unleash His power and strength in you and turn the impossible into possible.
Loving heavenly Father, forgive me for running ahead of You and losing out on the plans that You have for me. Lord, fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I may do exploits for Your Kingdom and please You in everything that I do. Smile down on me Lord which will renew my strength to soar higher for You and to bring in the lost souls. Help me always to hear Your voice and follow Your direction in my life and endeavors. Father, use me for Your glory. Thank You Master!
In Jesus name
