Waiting in the Word

“You are my hiding place and my shield; I wait for Your word.” Psalm 119:114

Scrolling, reading, and watching. News that changes moment by moment. It feels so easy to sink into all the information, to pick up and shoulder all the worries, all the while waiting for the next tidbit of news, the next headline. 

Instead of waiting in trepidation for the next announcement, what if we wait in the Word? When we can’t control the world around us (and that’s pretty much always), what if we stop waiting for the next ball to drop and instead wait for His presence to fall? Instead, wait for His Word to saturate us, fill us to overflowing. 

Wait in the Word. Wait in worship. I don’t know what you are waiting for, but here is a good place to camp out as you wait. 

He IS peace. He IS life. He IS breath. He IS I am. He is your friend, your Father, your hope, and your provider. He is your path, your strength, your guide, and your protection. His Word is the greatest love story, the most powerful weapon, the answer to every question, and the light to your path. He is our redeemer, our rightousness, our renewer and restorer. He is the way, the truth, and the life. He is a strong tower, a light in the darkness, truth, and justice. There is power in His name, comfort in His presence, and healing through His sacrifice. He IS good. He IS for you. Hope in Him. Wait in His Word. 

Prayer:  Jesus, thank You that You are all we need. Thank You that Your timing is perfect, and Your plan is sovereign. Be with us in the waiting. Thank You for Your Word.  It is what we need. Amen.

WOW, Allison, that is so well said! This truly is a season in which God is calling His people across the globe to seek Him, to call on Him, to humble themselves, to pray, to repent. And the promise is this: if we do these things, He will forgive our sin and HEAL OUR LAND! Praise God for his faithfulness!! Love you, sister!
