Wait On The Lord, Be Strong, And Let Your Heart Take Courage”

Psalm 27:14 (KJV)
14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and
he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27:10-14 (MSG) 10 My father and mother walked out and left me, but GOD took me in. 11 Point me down your highway, GOD; direct me along a well-lighted street; show my enemies whose side you’re on. 12 Don’t throw me to the dogs, those liars who are out to get me, filling the air with their threats. 13 I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness in the exuberant earth. 14 Stay with GOD! Take heart. Don’t quit. I’ll say it again: Stay with GOD.

waiting on god

The psalmist had just said, “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” If it had not been for his faith in God, his heart had fainted. But in the confident assurance in God which faith gives, he urges himself and us to remember one thing above all,—to wait upon God. “Wait on the Lord: be strong, and let your heart take courage: yea, wait thou on the Lord.” One of the chief needs in our waiting upon God, one of the deepest secrets of its blessedness and blessing, is a quiet, confident persuasion that it is not in vain; courage to believe that God will hear and help; we are waiting on a God who never could disappoint His people.

“Be strong and of good courage.” These words are frequently found in connection with some great and difficult enterprise, in prospect of the combat with the power of strong enemies, and the utter insufficiency of all human strength. Is Waiting on God a work so difficult, that, for that too, such words are needed, “Be strong, and let your heart take courage”? Yes, indeed. The deliverance for which we often have to wait is from enemies, in presence of whom we are impotent. The blessings for which we plead are spiritual and all unseen; things impossible with men; heavenly, supernatural, divine realities. Our heart may well faint and fail. Our souls are so little accustomed to hold fellowship with God; the God on whom we wait so of ten appears to hide Himself. We who have to wait are often tempted to fear that we do not wait aright, that our faith is too feeble, that our desire is not as upright or as earnest as it should be, that our surrender is not complete. Amid all these causes of fear or doubt, how blessed to hear the voice of God, “Wait on the Lord! Be strong, and let thine heart take courage! yea, wait thou on the Lord!” Let nothing in heaven or earth or hell—let nothing keep thee from waiting on thy God in full assurance that it cannot be in vain.

Waiting On God

The one lesson our text teaches us is this, that when we set ourselves to wait on God we ought beforehand to resolve that it shall be with the most confident expectation of God’s meeting and blessing us. We ought to make up our minds to this, that nothing was ever so sure, as that Waiting on God will bring us untold and unexpected blessing. We are so accustomed to judge of God and His work in us by what we feel, that the great probability is that when we begin more to cultivate the waiting on Him, we shall be discouraged, because we do not find any special blessing from it. The message comes to us, “Above everything, when you wait on God, do so in the spirit of abounding hopefulness. It is God in His glory, in His power, in His love longing to bless you that you are waiting on.”

If you say that you are afraid of deceiving yourself with vain hope, because you do not see or feel any warrant in your present state for such special expectations, my answer is, it is God, who is the warrant for your expecting great things. Oh, do learn the lesson. You are not going to wait on yourself to see what you feel and what changes come to you. You are going to wait on god, to know first, what he is, and then, after that, what He will do. The whole duty and blessedness of Waiting on God has its root in this, that He is such a blessed Being, full, to overflowing, of goodness and power and life and joy, that we, however wretched, cannot for any time come into contact with Him, without that life and power secretly, silently beginning to enter into him and blessing him. God is Love! That is the one only and all-sufficient warrant of your expectation. Love seeketh out its own: God’s love is just His delight to impart Himself and His blessedness to His children. Come, and however feeble you feel, just wait in His presence. As a feeble, sickly invalid is brought out into the sunshine to let its warmth go through him, come with all that is dark and cold in you into the sunshine of God’s holy, omnipotent love, and sit and wait there, with the one thought: Here I am, in the sunshine of His love. As the sun does its work in the weak one who seeks its rays, God will do His work in you. Oh, do trust Him fully. “Wait on the Lord! Be strong, and let your heart take courage! Yea, wait thou on the Lord!”

“My soul, wait thou only upon God!”

Waiting On God – Day 7 – ++Joshua Paul – Metropolitan

5 Feb Waiting On God

“God, Give Your People A Break From This Run Of Bad Luck”

Psalm 25:21 (KJV)
21  Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

Psalm 25:19-22 (MSG) 19  Do you see how many people Have it in for me? How viciously they hate me? 20  Keep watch over me and keep me out of trouble; Don’t let me down when I run to you. 21  Use all your skill to put me together; I wait to see your finished product. 22  GOD, give your people a break From this run of bad luck.

Waiting On God

 

For the third time in this psalm we have the word wait. As before in verse 5,

Psalm 25:5 (KJV)
5  Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

“On Thee do I wait all the day,” so here, too, the believing supplicant appeals to God to remember that he is waiting on Him, looking for an answer. It is a great thing for a soul not only to wait upon God, but to be filled with such a consciousness that its whole spirit and position is that of a waiting one, that it can, in childlike confidence, say, Lord! Thou knowest, I wait on Thee. It will prove a mighty plea in prayer, giving ever-increasing boldness of expectation to claim the promise, “They that wait on Me shall not be ashamed!”

The prayer in connection with which the plea is put forth here is one of great importance in the spiritual life. If we draw nigh to God, it must be with a true heart. There must be perfect integrity, whole-heartedness, in our dealing with God. As we read in the next Psalm (26:1, 11-12).

Psalm 26:1 (MSG) 1  A David psalm Clear my name, GOD; I’ve kept an honest shop. I’ve thrown in my lot with you, GOD, and I’m not budging. 

Psalm 26:11-12 (MSG) 11  You know I’ve been aboveboard with you; now be aboveboard with me. 12  I’m on the level with you, GOD; I bless you every chance I get.

“Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in mine integrity,” “As for me, I walk in my integrity,” there must be perfect uprightness or single-heartedness before God, as it is written, “His righteousness is for the upright in heart.” The soul must know that it allows nothing sinful, nothing doubtful; if it is indeed to meet the Holy One, and receive His full blessing, it must be with a heart wholly and singly given up to His will. The whole spirit that animates us in the waiting must be, “Let integrity and uprightness”—Thou seest that I desire to come so to Thee, Thou knowest I am looking to Thee to work them perfectly in me;—let them “preserve me, for I wait on Thee.”

And if at our first attempt truly to live the life of fully and always Waiting on God, we begin to discover how much that perfect integrity is wanting, this will just be one of the blessings which the waiting was meant to work. A soul cannot seek close fellowship with God, or attain the abiding consciousness of waiting on Him all the day, without a very honest and entire surrender to all His will.

Faith In God and His Word

“For I wait on Thee”: it is not only in connection with the prayer of our text but with every prayer that this plea may be used. To use it often will be a great blessing to ourselves. Let us therefore study the words well until we know all their bearings. It must be clear to us what we are waiting for. There may be very different things. It may be waiting for God in our times of prayer to take his place as God, and to work in us the sense of His holy presence and nearness. It may be a special petition, to which we are expecting an answer. It may be our whole inner life, in which we are on the lookout for God’s putting forth of His power. It may be the whole state of His Church and saints, or some part of His work, for which our eyes are ever toward Him. It is good that we sometimes count up to ourselves exactly what the things are we are waiting for, and as we say definitely of each of them, “On Thee do I wait,” we shall be emboldened to claim the answer, “For on Thee do I wait.”

It must also be clear to us, on Whom we are waiting. Not an idol, a God of whom we have made an image by our conceptions of what He is. No, but the living God, such as He really is in His great glory, His infinite holiness, His power, wisdom, and goodness, in His love and nearness. It is the presence of a beloved or a dreaded master that wakens up the whole attention of the servant who waits on him. It is the presence of God, as He can in Christ by His Holy Spirit make Himself known, and keep the soul under its covering and shadow, that will waken and strengthen the true waiting spirit. Let us be still and wait and worship till we know how near He is, and then say, “On Thee do I wait.”

And then, let it be very clear, too, that we are waiting. Let that become so much our consciousness that the utterance comes spontaneously, “On Thee I do wait all the day; I wait on Thee.” This will indeed imply sacrifice and separation, a soul entirely given up to God as its all, its only joy. This Waiting on God has hardly yet been acknowledged as the only true Christianity. And yet, if it be true that God alone is goodness and joy and love; if it be true that our highest blessedness is in having as much of God as we can; if it be true that Christ has redeemed us wholly for God, and made a life of continual abiding in His presence possible, nothing less ought to satisfy than to be ever breathing this blessed atmosphere, “I wait on Thee.”

“My soul, wait thou only upon God!”

Newtown residents hold prayer vigil after horrific mass shooting

14 Dec

Many residents of the town, where well-maintained clapboard homes with white picket fences dot the hilly landscape, are still struggling to come to grips with how such a horrific mass shooting could happen anywhere, much less in their sleepy town.

“If it happened here it could happen anywhere,” said Danielle Collins, who attended the vigil. “It’s shocking.”

CHURCH – Preparing For The Flight!

1 Dec

 

Mark 13:18 (King James Version)
18 And pray ye that YOUR FLIGHT be not in the winter.
Mark 13:19-37 (MSG)
19 “These are going to be hard days—nothing like it from the time God made the world right up to the present. And there’ll be nothing like it again.
20 If he let the days of trouble run their course, nobody would make it. But because of God’s chosen people, those he personally chose, he has already intervened.
21 “If anyone tries to flag you down, calling out, ‘Here’s the Messiah!’ or points, ‘There he is!’ don’t fall for it.
22 Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better.
23 So watch out. I’ve given you fair warning.
24 “Following those hard times, Sun will fade out, moon cloud over,
25 Stars fall out of the sky, cosmic powers tremble.
26 “And then they’ll see the Son of Man enter in grand style, his Arrival filling the sky—no one will miss it!
27 He’ll dispatch the angels; they will pull in the chosen from the four winds, from pole to pole.
28 “Take a lesson from the fig tree. From the moment you notice its buds form, the merest hint of green, you know summer’s just around the corner.
29 And so it is with you. When you see all these things, you know he is at the door.
30 Don’t take this lightly. I’m not just saying this for some future generation, but for this one, too—these things will happen.
31 Sky and earth will wear out; my words won’t wear out.
32 “But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father.
33 So keep a sharp lookout, for you don’t know the timetable.
34 It’s like a man who takes a trip, leaving home and putting his servants in charge, each assigned a task, and commanding the gatekeeper to stand watch.
35 So, stay at your post, watching. You have no idea when the homeowner is returning, whether evening, midnight, cockcrow, or morning.
36 You don’t want him showing up unannounced, with you asleep on the job.
37 I say it to you, and I’m saying it to all: Stay at your post. Keep watch.”

We me must urgently prepare ourselves for what is coming next. We have one last battle to fight, one more mountain to climb, one last giant to kill, you have one more blow to strike for the Kingdom. You have to know YOUR timing in The Lord’s Kingdom. God has mandated an “ECCLESIASTIC TRANSFORMATION”,  TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of our minds’. I have painfully come to realize that my time has run out, my season of “Destiny” has come to war my final predetermined warfare for UNIFICATION, it was what I was created for, to raise an Army of Warriors from the ashes of devastation, and prepare them for their season of DOMINION, the Succession of Holy Apostles of The Ancient Faith, I also know that once our destiny has been fulfilled, The Lord takes us home, so today I prepare for the warfare of the final subjugation and conquest, so that my FLIGHT can be right . I pray Lord that you will throw gasoline on my Holy Ghost Fire, and empower me for this season of conquest…and then I can sit back relax and take my flight. “WE Will Fight and We Will WIN in the name of JESUS OUR KING!…AMEN…++I AM

 

 

 

CHURCH – We Can Not Waste Another Year!

27 Nov

CHURCH – You Can Not Waste Another Year!

During the transition of the Christmas Holiday and New Year 2011-2012, I experienced what to me was the most severe of personal emotional and spiritual attack of my saved life. I was already experiencing the consequences of Diligent Obedience to doing whatever The Lord told me to do, whenever He told me to do it. In the transition of 2010-2011 the Lord instructed me concerning the ministry that people needed to be held accountable to whatever office they held and whatever commitments they had made to God during their walk with Christ. Of course the more I held people accountable the more I discovered who people holding key positions really were and where they really were with their God. Many of them as Christians do, aggressively and violently fought the “challenge” to change to the point of conspired attacks on what they thought they knew and even full and abrupt abandonment from their posts and responsibilities to God. As the Holiday Season approached at the end of 2011, I was already in the middle of a Paradigm Shift in the ministry at large. I was already tired and weary from one spiritual fight after another. So as usual the enemy struck a blow in the middle of the Holiday Season while I was yet weary from the battle and praying for some peace.

In January 2012 I received another transitional prophecy through the Word of God, which I took to heart and embraced aggressively. I shared it with one or two people in my inner circle, and spoke of it publically on my travels. It caused me to become even more intense in my obedience to the spontaneity of the Holy Spirit at all costs. Immediately it began to cost yet even more chaos while The Lord was instructing me to declare 2012 A Year of ORDER and RESURRECTION of Spiritual Authority in God’s House internationally. As with all prophecies from God, it usually gets worse or devastating before it gets better and manifests.

I had no idea how many people who had been around me for years and said they knew who I was in God, really had no clue who and who’s I was, and how severely they had misdiagnosed my motives, agenda, intentions, or desires spiritually and naturally. When this message was ministered to me it so resonated in my spirit that although it was originally spoken to others in the transition of 2005-2006, The Lord delayed my hearing it until the transition 2011-2012. When I made up my mind to no longer negotiate with people who opposed themselves and the cause of Christ warfare went off the chain on all fronts, I expected a battle, however nothing like what I encountered. However what the flesh of men and women did not know and underestimated was that God created me for The Fight, I was born for adversity and groomed in counter terrorist guerrilla warfare since birth. I made up my mind at the beginning of this year of 2012 that as the message prophesied, “We Can Not Waste Another Year” and at the end of this year 2012, “I Am Coming Out Head First!”I must warn you, many people around you will not like or accept your decision to “Answer Destiny’s Call”, some people called me crazy, others said he is tripping, others said he is finished, because I did whatever He told me and it shook up their comfort zones, and they could no longer predict what was next and how to sabotage it, I thank God for my obedience, as so much was revealed to me in the process. Let them think what they want to think, but those that will change and obey are coming out “Head First.”  I pray this message blesses you the way it blessed me, and as we transition out of 2012 The Year of God’s ORDER and RESURRECTION of Spiritual Authority, that you will as I have take the necessary measures, as we transition into 2013, and BE TRANSFORMED by the Renewing of Your Mind, as we Together as a Body of believers “ANSWER DESTINY’S CALL” and “Manifest The Mysteries” of God and the True Authentic ANCIENT FAITH in JESUS CHRIST and His KINGDOM Gospel, to a modern chaotic world.

The Lord has spoken it, and I am entrenched, and grounded in the foundational IMMUTABILTY of the Power of HIS WORD and His promise, that afterwards you are going to come out with great substance! NO LIMITS!

Thank you Bishop TD Jakes www.TDJAKES.org  for a powerful message that revolutionized my mentality in the middle of a crisis…++Joshua Paul
