“Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I
say, on the LORD” (Ps. 27:14) (NKJV)
There is only one God (Mark 12:32), the God who created the heavens and the earth
(Gen. 1:1). God is real (Isa. 43:12), He loves us all (John 3:16 & Rom. 5:8) because we
are precious in His sight (Isa. 43:4). Everything about us should be all about God, for
He chose us in Himself before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and
without blame before Him in love (Eph. 1:3)
Our God is LORD (Isa. 43:11). He predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ
to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will (Eph. 1:5), and has blessed us
with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places (Eph. 1:3). God in His mercy decided
that the relationship He would have with us would be that of Father and son (Rom.
We are nothing without God. We were created for His pleasure (Rev. 4:11) and for a
purpose (Rom. 8:28). God has a people He has sent to this world to fulfill His purpose
(Acts 18:10). Are you one of His chosen people?
We are not in charge of our lives. It is therefore important to know God’s purpose for
our lives (Hos. 4:6). Without God we are nothing (John 15:5). God’s purpose for us is
not a purpose of shame but of peace to give us a future and a hope (Jer. 29:11).
Do you trust God enough to obey His words? Or are you just a hearer and not a doer of
the word (James 1:22)? When your faith is tested (Gen. 22:2-13) and you are found not
wanting, you become bold (Prov. 28:1) and able to face and take on any challenge that
might confront you, using the word of God, knowing that you can do all things through
Christ which strengthens you (Phil. 4:13).
In this world, we are bound to face challenges, but we must remember the promise of
God for us (Isa. 43:2) that He will never leave nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5). There is no
limitation on God concerning our lives, for with God nothing shall be impossible (Luke
1:37). As His sons, our God has deployed all His power for our benefits (Isa. 43:13).
God’s purpose for creating us is not within our control. It has nothing to do with us,
even though we have the power of choice (Josh. 1:8) to choose against the will of God,
but it’s the counsel of God that will stand forever (Ps. 33:11).
Wait, I say on the LORD, If He has done it for one, God can also do it for you. Do not
despise yourself. Be who God wants you to be, to be able to fulfill God’s purpose and
not your own purpose, for your life.
