The Lord is Good.
Lamentations 3:25 (RSV)
25 “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.”
How to wait on the LORD? I pose the question? Sitting here in my study waiting for the LORD, I wait in a quiet place. Considering my surroundings and all the people in my space. Staying focused is a problem I seem to get bored and start playing around. I never learned how to meditate on the Word. I have experienced God’s presence many times and yet I struggle to draw near to Him. I have learned that I want a specific answer and God doesn’t give it the way I want it. It is compelling how awesome and beautiful our Lord is when we wait on Him. He will reveal Himself to you. The way to draw near to God is to open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time in reading and allowing God to speak to you. Now look for a verse that speaks into your heart. Write it down in your journal. What caught your attention in what you read? What is God saying to you in this scripture? Now, ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. I like to personalize what I have read and apply it to my day. It might be instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or a correction for a particular area of my life.
Lord God, thank You for being so good to me even in my unfaithfulness to You. I come into Your presence this morning and I confess that I have not been so faithful and true to You. Please forgive me. Life keeps me so busy and I need to get back on track when it comes to spending time in Your presence. Thank You, Lord for today, and the time I can spend with You. Bless each person reading my blog and help me to write what You want people to see. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen
