Waiting On The LORD

“Wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.” 
(Psalm 130:5-6)

Waiting on the LORD does not imply idleness on the part of the believer. His people are active in the kingdom of God; zealous of good works (Titus 2:14); diligent about their Father’s business (Luke 2:49); vigorous in spreading the gospel by whatever means the LORD supplies (Acts 5:41-42). Our God highly disapproves of idleness; “Woe to them that are at ease in Zion” (Amos 6:1). However, we do wait on Him for direction, open doors, liberty, wisdom, and for results. Here is the source, strength and the sweetness of our waiting, “In His WORD I do hope.”

His WORD is always successful (Isaiah 55:11); His WORD is always true (Psalm 33:4); His WORD is living (John 1:14) and powerful (Hebrews 4:12). The apostle Paul declared that he laboured hard in preaching the WORD, but he waited on the LORD for the results. Listen to what he said, “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase” (1st Corinthians 3:6). Let us be diligent labourers in the kingdom of God, always striving to preach the WORD (Jesus Christ), but let us be just as diligent to wait on the LORD for the results. His blessings are worth waiting for (1st Corinthians 1:30).
