Thought: When we take a breath, and take a moment, we allow the Spirit of God to come. The concept waiting in scripture often involves silent contemplation, When we consider the Lord and what God has done for us we find words are never enough. Faith is often revealed as patience. Jesus said when he returns will he find faith. Who we trust in God enough to wait to be patient to allow God to move on our behalf or are we quick to fix it ourselves or look for the shortcut.

 

Scripture: 

 

“For God alone my soul waits in silence; from The Lord comes my salvation.” 

“God alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall never be shaken.”

Psalms 62:1-2 NRSV

 

Introduction:

 

Point 1 The Lord is our helper

 

The writer of Hebrews says it like this 

 

“So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?””

Hebrews 13:6 NRSV

 

Point 2 My soul waits 

 

If we can’t keep silent in the presence of God, then our soul is not at rest. When we contemplate the awesome God, the creator of heaven and earth, and we understand what God has done for us. Hebrews again says 

 

“Now may the God of peace [the source of serenity and spiritual well-being] who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood that sealed and ratified the eternal covenant, equip you with every good thing to carry out His will and strengthen you [making you complete and perfect as you ought to be], accomplishing in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Hebrews 13:20-21 AMP

 

Point 3 Find rest 

 

““Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. For My yoke is easy [to bear] and My burden is light.””

Matthew 11:28-30 AMP
