Jesus Calling~ March 26th

Waiting on Me means directing your attention to Me in hopeful anticipation of what I will do.  It entails trusting Me with every fiber of your being, instead of trying to figure things out yourself.  Waiting on Me is the way I designed you to live: all day, every day.  I created you to stay conscious of Me as you go about your daily duties.
I have promised many blessings to those who wait on Me: renewed strength, living above one’s circumstances, resurgence of hope, awareness of My continual Presence.  Waiting on Me enables you to glorify Me by living in deep dependence on Me, ready to do My will.  It also helps you to enjoy Me; in My Presence is fullness of Joy. 

 

I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
   therefore I will wait for Him.”

The LORD is good to those whose hope is in Him,
   to the one who seeks Him;
it is good to wait quietly
   for the salvation of the LORD.~Lamentations 3:24-26

 

but those who hope in the LORD
   will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
   they will run and not grow weary,
   they will walk and not be faint. ~Isaiah 40:31

 

You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. ~Psalm 16:11(NKJV)

 

My Thoughts:

I think He is trying to tell me.. and has been trying to tell me… stop trying to control everything, stop trying to take over and do MY job!!  Learn to wait on Me, trust in Me and walk with Me!! 
Wait quietly… the part I have the hardest time doing, and stop grumbling!!  That was from yesterday’s post.  Yes Lord!  Help me to learn to wait patiently on You because I know this wait has such wonderful, powerful and amazing results!!!!

 

Jesus callingSo.. a friend of mine was/is doing a daily devotional called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I decided to head on over iTunes and see what they had since I had a gift card for iTunes. They had it so I got it. I really like it. The one I got is more like an app than the audible book but I still like it.

I'm with you, my friend. Being still and waiting is such a hard thing for us to do in this world that teaches us that we are rated (valued) on performance. We, in our nature, want to DO. But God tells us to wait and be still. It goes against the grain and yet ... as you said ... it brings great blessings!
