In honor of Black History- Quote: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”—Nelson Mandela
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait I say, on the Lord!” Psalm 27:14(KJV)
As I sit and meditate on Psalm 27:14 I am reminded of how I feel when I’m at the doctor’s office in the waiting room to see the doctor. As we all know that can seem like an eternity just having to wait to see the doctor. We’ll all of us our in God’s waiting room right now. We are waiting for him to heal our land, we are waiting to be able to go see our loved ones again without wearing a mask, some are still waiting to return to work, waiting to come out of this Pandemic. We are waiting on our children to return to school in person, and list goes on and on. We are all waiting on life to get back to what we were once used to. Wait on the Lord! The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. Lamentations 3:25 Amen! I encourage you to do your very best to turn lemons into lemonade during this time while we are forced to wait. Ask God to use you during this time that we are waiting on deliverance and healing. Take a stand and refuse to be a victim, we all have so much to be grateful for. Take advantage of this time to Pay-it-Forward and be a blessing to someone. Ask God to renew your mind daily, and choose positive thinking. I encourage you to EXPECT God’s favor in your life. He’s still in the blessing business. And while we are waiting, think about all the underline blessings that he’s given us during this pandemic. We have more time with our families, we have an opportunity to get more rest, we are able to nature our relationship with God, there are so many opportunities where we can give back, and we are getting to know ourselves like never before. I’ve said it before, this Pandemic did not take God by surprise. He is speaking loud and clear; I just hope that we are listening intently and learning the lessons that God is teaching us. God has not changed, he’s same today, yesterday, and forever more. Keep your faith in God, he won’t fail you! I am confident in him abilities to do anything but fail.
Father we come pausing to give thanks to you for blessing us to see a brand new day with new mercies. Thank you Lord for last night laying down and this morning early rising. Thank you for your darling son Jesus who died, bleed, and rose that we may have everlasting life. Please forgive us for falling short of your glory. Thank you that we are not what we used to be and that we’re striving each and every day to be more like Christ. Lord as we wait for you to heal our land, help us to do it without complaining and grumbling. Because as bad as we may (THINK) we have it, please remind us that there is someone going through way more than we are. Help us to stay in your word for encouragement. Remind us to speak your word and to believe by faith that is will not return to you void. Truly our soul silently waits for you, you are the joy of our salvation, and our expectations for deliverance begins and ends with you. Father our hope is in you, the author and finisher of our faith. Lord thank you for being our good shepherd, and for providing all of our needs. Thank you for peace in the midst of the storm. Great is thy faithfulness. We continue to ask a special blessing for our first responders, our doctors, nurses, fire-fighters, officers, and those who are working hard to provide food and essentials for those in need. Bless them and their families in deed. We love you Lord, we can’t make it without you. Please give us guidance and directions, and don’t allow us to move to left or right if it’s not in your will. Then Lord, show us how we can be a blessing to someone, use us for your glory. For it’s in your darling son Jesus name, we pray, give thanks, and say Amen!
