Waiting upon the Lord

What does it mean to wait upon You, Lord?

 

(It means to) to wait in silence for Me alone, and quietly submit to Me, for your hope is in Me.  Trust confidently in Me at all times, pour out your heart before Me, for I am your refuge. I favor those who fear and worship Me, who wait for My mercy and lovingkindness.

 

(It means to) surrender to Me and wait patiently for Me. Don't be preoccupied with an evildoer who succeeds in his way... let go of anger and leave rage behind. Trust in Me with all your heart, and don't rely on your own understanding.

 

What are the benefits?

 

Your strength will be renewed when you wait in hope in Me. I'll teach you the right way to live. Just being with Me will bring you complete happiness. And I will answer you. I am your help and your shield. Those who hopefully wait for Me will not be put to shame!

  1. I agree about the benefit of waiting in silence. I spend too much time thinking or talking. I just need to be still and know that He is God.
    I like your idea of asking a question and answering with scripture. Thanks again for sharing.
