Isaiah 28:29, 30:18




"The Lord Almighty is wonderful in COUNSEL and magnificent in WISDOM.

The Lord longs to be gracious to you;
He rises to show you compassion...
Blessed are all those who wait for Him!"








You may think of waiting as a passive, inactive time. Waiting on the Lord is anything but inactive. While you wait on Him, you will be praying with a passion to know Him, His purpose, His ways...
Waiting on Him is always worth the wait. His timing and His ways are always right. You must depend on Him to guide you in His ways and in His timing to accomplish His purpose.

Wow, I love this Bethany! I think so often we think of 'waiting' as sitting around and doing nothing, when in reality it is not. In our times of waiting we should be praying to know Him better and His plans for our lives. And the verses you chose fit so perfectly - the other night I was reading in Isaiah and those verses ministered to my heart! Thank you, dear sister!

This is a timed-post... I needed that! I'm so nervous about an oral presentation I have to do tomorrow, and now I've read this... well, it helped. Thank you for this blessing!

Beautiful post! I just had to share with you that I was at a used Christian bookstore when I was in NC and saw this book on their shelf. I probably would not have taken a second glance at it had you not posted so many beautiful, inspiring quotes from it. It's now purchased and sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read! I haven't had a good chance yet, but you've inspired me to pick it up soon!

Miss you!

Have you ever read 'Stay in the Castle'? Very good book. It reminded me of this poem. And how to wait on the LORD
