Isaiah 40:31 AMP … But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Isaiah 64:4 AMP … For from of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who [earnestly] waits for Him.

Trust in the Lord to equip you and strengthen you to do what He has called you to do
AND wait upon Him to do the rest
Wait for Him to do what only He can do!

Jeremiah 32:17 AMP … Alas, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! There is nothing too hard or too wonderful for You—

Isaiah 30:18 AMP … And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up{rises up}, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!

He who sacrifices thank-offerings honors Me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation{deliverance} of God. -Ps50:23

Isaiah 30:18 AMP … And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice.

Psalm 27:4-9 AMP … One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple.

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me; in His tent I will offer sacrifices{thank-offerings} and shouting of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; have mercy and be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word]. Hide not Your face from me; turn not Your servant away in anger, You Who have been my help! Cast me not off, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation!

Longing Hearts

August 12, 2011

The Lord longs to be gracious to you
Therefore, He rises up in compassion
That He may have mercy on you and
Show His loving-kindness to you.

Because of this you are not consumed
His tender compassions fail not
The steadfast love of the LORD Jesus Christ
Never comes to an end!
New every morning
Great is His faithfulness!

The LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait[expect, long for] for Him in faith!

Consider the Lilies

March 2, 2011

Matthew 6:28-30 Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you—you of little faith?

Have faith, trust in the Lord
Wait on Him.

Consider the lilies
They belong to Him
He cares for them
They neither toil nor spin
Yet none is dressed in more splendor than them.

Worry not
Each lily is held and treasured by His mighty hand.

My beloved is mine, and I am his. He feeds his flock among the lilies. -Song 2:16

Quote Thomas Merton:

“What is the use of praying if at the very moment of prayer, we have so little confidence in God that we are busy planning our own kind of answer to our prayer?”

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]! -Isa 30:18 AMP
