Waiting on the Promise
“And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”
Today’s Morsel: One of the biggest problems in life is that most folks don’t know how to live. Most people don’t have the patience to wait for what they asked God for, nor the things that He’s promised them. They pray, but they get stressed out and depressed because the answer doesn’t come on their timeline. That’s not living. That’s worry. Living is telling Jesus what the need is and having fun while you’re waiting for the answer. Or, you find something He’s promised you in His word and you rejoice while you wait for Him to bring it to fruition. The disciples didn’t go back to Jerusalem sad, depressed, and weary after Jesus' ascension, they went back and had a prayer meeting and waited for the promise. And ten days later they received the promise (see Acts 1:20. “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." (Psalms 27:14)
Sing: I lean on You Lord. I lean of You Lord. For the things that I need I lean on You. When I don’t know just what to do, I’ve got the faith You’re going to see me through. You supply my every need and I lean on You.
Thought For Today: Wait on the Lord.
