Sometimes Life Hurts

Delight in the LORD.

“I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are yourself the answer. Before your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice?” C.S. Lewis

.

Waiting on God hasn’t been something I am good at. I even need him to help me wait. I delight that he is there for me. I think this song helps me keep focus right now.To me the answer is always always in the WORD. That’s where we see the face of God. I can squirm and painfully suffer in temporal drama or I can search and passionately accept his Word for eternal answers that meet my needs and order my steps. If I feel full of chaos and can’t find peace I am operating in me and not the Spirit. That always gets me nowhere good and keeps me longer than I should stay. If I operate in Deb too much I can’t see the eternal and lose my way. If I operate on an eternal perspective and cast aside things that bind my heart and mind I fare much better in this life. We have to be willing let everything go that keeps us down. We have to keep our hearts clean and hands open ready for the next thing GOD brings our way. We also have to be ready to go after what he’s planned for us. Waiting on GOD doesn’t look like a lazy boy recliner posture. It looks like “seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you”. Take care of his business and he will take care of yours.
So many promises cover us while we are waiting on God. There are 21 verses about waiting on him as he delivers us. Everything has been planned by God and if we give him the last say we have the joy and peace he promised that comes with waiting. GOD is faithful and I am painfully excited to watch him work. I delight in his truth and answers. I am always disappointed when I seek my own first instead of his. Wow! that he even works with me is enough to delight in his love over.
