Just Wait on God!

But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him. –Habakkuk 2:20

I think we are the busiest bunch of eager beavers ever seen in the religious world. The idea seems to be that if we are not running in a circle, breathing down the back of our own neck, we are not pleasing God!

When Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15 KJV), Peter probably leaped to his feet and, no doubt, scooped up his hat on the way out. He was going to go right then!

But the Lord said, “Peter, come back, and ‘stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high’ (Luke 24:49).”

I heard a Christian leader warn recently that we are suffering from a rash of amateurism in Christian circles. Christianity has leveled down and down and down. We are as light as butterflies– though we flit, flit, flit around in the sunshine and imagine that we are eagles flapping our broad wings.

Sometimes I think the Church would be better off if we would call a moratorium on activity for about six weeks and just wait on God to see what He is waiting to do for us. That’s what they did before Pentecost. The Counselor, 95.

“Lord, this morning I’ll stop for a while at least to ‘just wait on God.’ I know You’re wanting to work, and I for one am willing to wait this morning to hear Your voice and discover what You want to do for me today. Amen.”

    Dear Loving Brother Scott,
    it is really true.we need to stop and sit with Lord in His presence.this can be done only on meditating on His Word in absolute quiet moments.many a times we are really preoccuppied and busy with many activities
    we find an apt example in the event of martha and mary.
    one was quiet busy (probably in the kitchen to cook for Him) the other was sitting at the feet of Lord Jesus.
    and His comment was she chose the right one.(I don’t remember which charecter was in the kitchen and the other as i am in the office at work i don’t have the bible also with me now). also we see Jesus ask his disciples can’t you sit with me awaken for one hour ?
    in the olden days when technology infrastructure living conditions all were too below we had time for every thing . now we have little time for essential things.
    matter of priorities
    Let Lord Himself interveine and Guide us to make correct time table.
    with lot of love and prayers
    tharian m kurian
