We don't like that word do we? It goes against our 'I want it now' attitude.
When things are going crazy, economies failing, jobs being lost, houses foreclosed on, our first reaction is to run around and try to fix things.
But the Word of God explains to us what to do. Gives us wisdom not of this world.
If your heart is failing, life is out of control, STOP and Wait on the Lord.
Jesus did. See how often He went away by himself to pray and wait on the Father. If Jesus needed to get away and wait on the Lord, how much more do we.
The world and it's lies batter us 24/7. WE need to wait on the Lord and know that HE promises to strengthen our hearts.
Be of good courage. Wait on the Lord. And let your heart be strengthened.
