Wait on the Lord

    We are waiting for many things – for a certain day to get here, for the return of Christ, for a rough season to pass, for the time to plant crops, for the time of harvesting crops, etc.

    Scripture tells us to "Wait on the Lord." This has at least two connotations. First, is wait, like we generally think, where perhaps our patience is tested until something is accomplished. This is difficult for some. In our modern world instant dinners aren’t fast enough.

    The second connotation is wait, as in serve. The people at restaurants wait on you, they serve you.

    Both of them are appropriate to consider. Because God has his own definite time frame, and it will rarely match ours, we must wait for whatever he wants us to do or know, if it isn’t immediately. But we also should wait on the Lord by serving others – meeting needs, being Christ to a world that knows Him not, helping the weak, homeless, etc.

    Psalms 37:34 (NKJV) says "Wait on the Lord, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it."

    This indicates both – Keeping his way by serving like Christ, and waiting with patience until the wicked are cut off.

    Rather than just sitting idly for the enemies to be cut off, let’s wait on the Lord in service while we wait for further word, instruction, correction, or assignment from him.
