I’m waiting for Jesus to walk through the door I need Him today more than ever before He has the answer for all of my needs So I will wait here, down on my knees My petitions are simple and He hears them all I just have to listen so I’ll know when He calls I know that real soon His knock will announce That He has a word that He’ll soon pronounce I bring you healing, He says loud and clear I bring you wisdom to soothe all your tears I bring you peace that will calm every storm I bring you hope that will keep your soul calm I bring deliverance from Satan’s strong grip I bring my armor so you’ll be equipped I bring redemption from all of your sins I bring salvation to clean you within I’ll only come in if you answer my call I’ll knock on your door and wait in the hall Please come and open the door of your heart Then I will be with you and never depart
I wait on you Lord For you give me strength You lift me up above the tempest You set my feet on higher ground You instill peace down in my soul I wait on you Lord For you give me health You favor me with your loving breath You smile on me as I recover You breath life into my soul I wait on you Lord For you give me purpose You guide me through hard places You show me the path to take You whisper to my soul I wait on you Lord You are my all in all You are my heart's desire You are my everything So I wait.
I’ll wait in my sorrow. I’ll wait in my pain
I’ll wait in the sunrise. I’ll wait when it rains
I’ll wait in the storms. I’ll wait when I cry
I’ll wait in the evening. I’ll wait when I’m tired
I’ll wait when I’m lonely. I’ll wait when I’m blessed
I’ll wait when I’m weak. I’ll wait to find rest
I know if I wait like an eagle I’ll fly
He’ll make me to walk. He’ll make me to rise
I know if I wait patience He will give me
Then all of my troubles will soon disappear
So I will wait. I’ll wait for my King
Because I know my Lord controls everything
I know that His timing is never late
Whenever I pray I’ve learned to wait
I hate going to the doctor. It’s not that I am afraid of seeing him, or worried anything is wrong other than the obvious on that day, I just don’t like going. It’s not the blood work or the exam that bother me. It’s the waiting. You wait in the first waiting room, then you wait in the exam room. Sitting around waiting makes you have patience, Maybe that’s why we are called Patients!
But waiting for God is different. The Bible assures us that we will be rewarded if we learn to wait in the Lord. Some people are impatient and think they need their answer right now. They receive their reward and are done. But those who are patient get a bigger reward. David tells us that when we wait patiently, God inclines to us. Think about that for a minute. He leans over and listens intently to us. His ear is right there ready to hear. Plus, James tells us that our trials teach us patience and take us to perfection, or maturity in Christ. You can have your answers right away. I’ll choose to wait on the Master’s timing. He knows my needs before I’ve even asked. If we have to wait, there’s a reason and a plan. We grow in the wait!
Psalm 40:1-2 King James Version
40 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
Lord I am waiting. Waiting for you
Because I am certain that you’ll see me through
Lord I am hopeful. Hopeful that you
Will hear every prayer that I lift to you
You are so faithful. Faithful to me
You are so faithful. The answer I’ll see
When times get hard. When things seem so dark
I know you are faithful if I’ll do my part
Lord I am praying. Praying to you
For when I cry Jesus your presence is sure
I don’t have to worry. I don’t have to fret
I don’t have to wonder. The answer I’ll get
All that He asks of me. All He requires
Is that I cry out to him. That’s what he desires
How long am I willing to wait? Am I willing to wait 14 years, like Jacob did for Rachel? Am I willing to wait 40 years like Moses did on the back side of the desert, or like the children of Israel in the wilderness? Am I willing to wait once I have killed Goliath to see the promise of God come on my life as David did? Am I willing to wait as the seventy did in the upper room for the promise of God? Am I willing to wait until I am stranded on a deserted island, like John on Patmos?
Most of the time I am not. Most of the time I want my answer now. I want God to do it my way, not His way. I can lose hope real fast, and even stop praying, if I don’t get it when I think I should. I start to think God has forgotten me or given up on me.
But the Bible tells us a different story. The Bible tells us a story about a God who is always faithful, a God who fulfills our hope, A God who answers our prayers. The key is always in the wait. What are you waiting for today? Have faith in the faithful one!
Lamentations 3:22-26 King James Version (KJV)
22 It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
I waited patiently on the Lord
Then He inclined to me
He heard my cry
Oh, Lord, I love you so (REPEAT)
You picked me up
Out of the miry clay
Set my feet
On the rock to stay
There’s a new song in my mouth
Praises to my God
Praises to my King
Praises to my Lord
This is an old song I wrote from 2012. I felt the Holy Spirit telling me to post it this morning. I pray it blesses you.
My life is filled with ups and downs trying to find my way around
In a world that keeps me guessing everyday
And when I pray I just don’t know if the answer’s coming slow
Or if he’s showing me his plan another way.
He leads me into the wilderness from the mountaintop
He rows me into the storm then he calms the sea
I don’t need to know where he’s leading me or what he’s going to do
For I know that all he does is for my good
I will follow where he leads me
I will go when he says go
If he opens up a door I will walk through
And if he suddenly turns quiet and I cannot hear his voice
I will wait…..I will wait
I will wait. I will wait. I will wait on the Lord. I will wait
