Thought For Today – November 26
Wait On The Lord!
“I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27: 13, 14.
Oh! The sloughs of despond that we as Christians so often and so easily fall into when we are anxious for our lives, and have not the patience we need to be calm, and to wait on God. Oh! How difficult it is to believe that which we cannot see and touch., This is part of our old carnal nature, but the gift of God is faith. Faith even as the size of a grain of mustard seed to believe the promises of God's word, if we exercise it properly, will be as a light in a dark tunnel that will direct our thoughts and actions toward God, and allow us to perceive the goodness and providence of God.
Believe God, trust his word, stagger not at the promises of God. Even as Abraham of old, believe God implicitly and God will not fail those who put their trust in him. Believe to see the goodness of God in the land of the living, and you will not faint. Many times throughout the scriptures, we see that God does not seem to be in any hurry to do all that he has planned to do for our good.
We honor God when we determine in our heart to wait for the promise of God's infallible word. If God has spoken rest assured it shall be done as he has said. Therefore - “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait I say on the Lord.” Psalm 27: 14.
