Waiting quietly on God

“I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him.” (Psalms 62:1 NLT)

Christian brothers and sisters, our life journey can often be fast paced and multifaceted, leaving us with the desire to move swiftly in every aspect of life. Since the creation of the world wide web and other technology, information is accessible at our fingertips instantaneously. It has created a more communicative world in the broad sense, however we are often absorbed and consumed by the fast, loud and eager lifestyles. In this sense, we forget the value of the “still waters” and “quiet streams” of life which enable us to maintain balance and sanity in this world.

The psalmist reminds us in this verse that we have to wait quietly before God. Our relationship with Almighty God should be supreme to everything else in our lives, and we must consciously make the time to be quiet and wait. Everything that happens in our lives is for a purpose to be fulfilled in us. Sometimes it is character development and other times it is an opportunity for a greater manifestation of power from the divine source. Each moment of your life has a purpose, and will ultimately lead to the best pathway for your life.

God has already promised victory to you. (Romans 8:37) The key is to wait patiently as God’s will is unfolded in your life. The plan for your life will prosper you, give you hope and a bright future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Your responsibility is to learn how to wait quietly before God, and seek his divine presence and power each day. Take time everyday simply to be quiet. The victory is on the way, and you will experience a greater level than you could ask or imagine as you focus your heart to Almighty God.

Let Your Enemies Bring Out the Best in You

“You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best – the sun to warm and the rain to nourish – to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty.” Matthew 5:43-45 The Message

A New Power

” A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that.

And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us.”
