"WAIT UPON THE LORD"--(Don't produce an Isamael)

March 26, 2013,

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9).

In the mean time, “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).

Many of us have been told by the Lord that certain things will happen in our lives. Some have been told that you would leave your jobs and enter into full time ministry. Then wait upon the Lord, He will bring it to pass.

Some have been told that you would find a home and that you would move out of that old apartment or trailer. If so, then wait upon the Lord.

Some of you have been told that you would meet the man or woman of your dreams. If so, then wait upon the Lord; surely He will bring it to pass in His time.

Some of you have sickness and pain in your bodies and you wonder why you still have this when you have prayed earnestly for healing and for restoration. Wait upon the Lord, He will do this thing that He promised. He may not do it as we think He would, but 'in His time,'it will happen.'

We know of the story of Abraham and Sarah and how God told Sarah that she would conceive and have a son. They were impatient however, and Sarah decided that Abraham should sleep with their servant Hagar.

Genesis 16:1-6. 'Sarah, Abraham's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her slave-girl, and gave her to her husband Abram as a wife. He went in to Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked with contempt on her mistress.'

Let's not be like Abraham who produced an Ismael. Wait upon the Lord for the right timing. Surely, it will come to pass and Isaac will come forth.

Wait on God’s divine timing. Know today that God can always be trusted. As long as you live in accordance with the Word of God, know that God will do all that He promised to do for you, in his perfect time.
