You Can… Patiently Wait (8-27-17)

THERE’S A VIRTUE WE WISH WE HAD:  PATIENCE!

 

YOU CAN WAIT WHEN YOU KNOW THERE’S A REWARD AT THE END OF IT.

 

PSALM 37:7, 9, 34 ENCOURAGE US IN WAITING.

 

THE REWARD IS THE SAVIOR.  Psalm 39:7, 62:5, Isaiah 8:17, 30:18

WE WAIT FOR HIM, INSTEAD OF DEFENDING SELF.  Job 35:14, Proverbs 20:22

 

THE REWARD IS STRENGTH.  Psalm 27:14, Isaiah 40:31

 

THE REWARD IS SALVATION.  Isaiah 49:23, 51:5, Lam. 3:25-26, Gal. 5:5

 

THE REWARD IS SEEING.  Philippians 3:20, Hebrews 9:28, Romans 8:24-25, James 5:7-8

ALL OF THIS ENCOURAGES US TO PATIENTLY WAIT.  Hosea 12:6, Micah 7:7

 

WAITING ALL DAY – Psalm 25:5

 

WAITING LIFELONG – Job 14:14

 

WE’RE HANGING ON HIS EVERY WORD AND REALIZING THAT WHAT HASN’T HAPPENED JUST HASN’T HAPPENED . . YET.
