Until Your Heart Sings

May 26, 2016

Psalm 27:13-14 AMPC …  [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! 14 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

From NetBible Ps 27:13-14

v13 … I would have lost heart{despaired,given up hope, lost heart,fainted} [What, what would have become of me]  , unless I had believed that I would see{ experience} the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.

v14 … Wait and hope for and expect{rely on} the Lord; be brave{strong} and of good courage and let your heart be stout{strengthened} and enduring{firm}. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect{rely on} the Lord.

Wait, hope, expect, rely on the Lord
Wholeheartedly trust Him
Let your heart be steadfast
Fixed on Him
Be strengthened there
Held in His perfect peace, perfect rest –
Is 26:3
In the shadow of His wings –Ps 91:1
Be held there

Cling to Him –Ps 63:8
Until you are helped{experience His goodness} …

… Until your heart greatly rejoices and sings!Ps 63:7

Psalm 28:7 AMPC … The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.

Psalm 57:7-8 AMPC … My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident! I will sing and make melody. 8 Awake, my glory (my inner self); awake, harp and lyre! I will awake right early [I will awaken the dawn]!

From NetBible Ps 57:8

  • * “Dawn” is used metaphorically for the time of deliverance and vindication the psalmist anticipates. When salvation “dawns,” the psalmist will “wake up” in praise.
    =>I will awake the dawn = I will see the deliverance/vindication{goodness} of the Lord

1 Thessalonians 5:24 AMP
Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].

Philippians 1:6 AMP
And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.

Hebrews 10:35-37 NLT
So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord, no matter what happens. Remember the great reward it brings you! 36 Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. 37 For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay.

Wait- He Will Avenge

May 9, 2014

Proverbs 20:22 NIV … Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will avenge you.

From Gill’s Exposition Proverbs 20:22

Say not thou, I will recompense evil,…. With evil; do an injury to one that has done one to you; private revenge is not to be taken, but should be left to God, to whom vengeance belongs, (Deuteronomy 32:35);

but wait on the Lord(Psalm 27:14), and he shall save thee; commit thyself and cause to God; leave it with him to avenge thy wrongs; wait upon him in the way of thy duty, and wait his own time to do thee justice; he will at the proper season, and in his own way, save thee from thine enemy, and make a righteous retribution to him.

From NetBible Prv 20:22

  • *The idea “I’ll pay you back” is “getting even” by paying back someone for the evil done.
  • To “wait”  on the Lord requires faith in him, reliance on divine justice, and patience. It means that the wrongs done to a person will have to be endured for a time.
  • In this context “He will avenge” means “deliver from the evil done to you,” and so “vindicate” is an appropriate connotation. Cf. NCV “he will make things right.”

Deuteronomy 32:35 AMP
35 Vengeance is Mine, and recompense, in the time when their foot shall slide; for the day of their disaster is at hand and their doom comes speedily.

Psalm 27:13-14 AMP
13 [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
14 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

Be of Good Courage

May 7, 2014

Deuteronomy 31:6 AMP
6 Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.

Be strong
Be of good courage
Remember it is the Lord your God who is with you.

He will not fail or forsake you!

Courage

Psalm 27:13-14 AMP
13 [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
14 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

From NetBible Ps 27:13-14

BBE … 14 Let your hope be in the Lord: take heart and be strong; yes, let your hope be in the Lord.

NKJV … 13 I would have lost heart{despaired,fainted} , unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. 14 Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!

Let your hope be in the Lord
Believe you will see His goodness
Be of good courage
And He will strengthen your heart!

Soar

Isaiah 40:28-31 AMP
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding.
29 He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound].
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted;
31 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.

God Will Make A Way

March 18, 2012

You may be enclosed in darkness right now
Unable to see a way forward.

Do not despair
BELIEVE
That you will see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living! -Ps 27:13

Take heart, don’t quit
Be brave and of good courage
And He will strengthen your heart
Wait, hope for and expect the Lord.
-Ps 27:14

God makes a way where there is no way!

Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men! -Ps 31:19 AMP

Oh, send out Your light and Your truth!
Let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your tabernacle.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And on the harp I will praise You,
O God, my God.

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

-Ps 43:3-5;Ps 42:11

Faint Not

May 24, 2009

 

 

Psalm 27:13-14      I would have fainted{despaired} unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!

What do you do when you’re growing faint? When the battle surrounds on all sides? When all doors seem to be closed?

Hold on, BELIEVE and WAIT on the LORD!
Bow before the Lord, sing praises to His name
Behold the beauty of His face
Worship at His feet!
Praise the Lord for His mercy, His goodness,
… the goodness you SEE in the land of the living.
All His promises are backed by the honor of His name.
Not one will fail, every promise will be fulfilled. – Josh 23:14

The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it! -1 Thess 5:24

Take heart, wait on the Lord
He will strengthen you
He will revive you
His mighty right hand stretches forth to deliver
He is mighty to save.

Take heart and wait, FAINT NOT
He will not abandon the works of His hands
The Lord will perfect His purposes for you
Be still and see the salvation of the Lord
TODAY is a new day
Hallelujah!

Salvation and glory and power belong to the LORD our God -Rev 19:1!

Psalm 138:1-2, 7-8     I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods. I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all{the honor of} Your name.

Though I walk in the midst{center} of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. The LORD will fulfil{perfect} His purpose for me; Your love{mercy}, O LORD, endures for ever—do not abandon the works of Your hands.

Exodus 14:13-14    Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.

God Waits, Also
By Patricia Nordman

“Wait for the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).

“Waiting has four purposes. It practices the patience of faith. It gives time for preparation for the coming gift. It makes the blessing the sweeter when it arrives. It shows the sovereignty of God to give just when and as He pleases” (Dr. James Vaughan).

There is also a condition attached to our waiting: “Don’t be impatient for the Lord to act! Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and in due season he will honor you with every blessing” (Psalm 37:34 RSV). We are to attend to the little duties as well as to the large ones. Wait and work; pray for grace and then exercise it.

It is interesting that God also waits: “Then he waited for the harvest” (Isaiah 5:2 RSV). He waits for us to consider His nature which proves His intelligence and beauty and goodness; He waits for us to reflect on history threaded through and held together with His justice and mercy, and whose mission it is to turn sin into righteousness; He waits for us to realize that the alternates of adversity and prosperity, friendship and enmity, sorrow and joy, are but the instruments of His spiritual instruction that we may finally dwell in the mansions He has already prepared for us.

We waste much time waiting for signs and wonders. Christ told the expectant crowd, “This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign” (Luke 11:29). In our day of the Gospel, which is filled with the plainest evidence of God’s care for us, we do not need to use a flashlight to shine it on the Son who is the Light of the world and we don’t need to dump in our buckets of contaminated water to add to the Living Water. To ask for signs from God when He has already pledged numerous promises is to tell God we are ungrateful and undeserving.
===============
The duty of waiting:

The Christian soldier is long in learning to wait.
Marching and countermarching are much easier to God’s warriors than standing still. There are hours of perplexity when the willing spirit anxiously desires to serve, but knows not how. Shall it vex itself by despair? fly back in cowardice? turn aside in fear? rush forward in presumption? No; simply wait; but

I. WAIT IN PRAYER. Call upon God; spread the case before Him; tell Him the difficulty; plead His promises.

II. WAIT IN SIMPLICITY OF SOUL. In dilemmas it is sweet to be humble as a child. It is sure to be well with us when we feel and know our folly, and are willing to be guided by God’s will.

III. WAIT IN FAITH. Express unwavering confidence; for unfaithful, untrusting confidence is an insult to the Lord. Believe that though He keeps us tarrying He will come at the right time and will not tarry.

IV. WAIT IN QUIET PATIENCE. Not rebelling under the affliction, but blessing God for it; nor murmuring against second causes, as the children of Israel against Moses; nor wishing to go back to the world again; but accepting the case as it stands, and putting it simply and whole-heartedly into the hands of our covenant God. (C. H. Spurgeon.)
