LOOK AND WAIT

As for me, I will look to the Lord. Certainly that is something we should all do. I know that is the place to look when I am in need in any area in my life. There is no other place to look than to the Lord. He is our all and the answer to every question and situation that arises. I thank God that my mom placed in me the knowledge of that so that I can say I will look to the Lord. Many times though, actually usually, after you look to the Lord, you dont want to wait. I will wait on the God of my salvation. There is waiting involved. Don't we usually want God to "hurry up!" I know I do. Look we can see what needs to happen and we can just go ahead and tell God, "this is what needs to happen now". Dont we do God like that sometimes. Maybe a lot. But is that really "Looking to the Lord"? Or is it just wanting the Lord to "look to us"? Once we look to Him, we wait on Him. He is the God of our salvation. He is the God of all creation. He is the one true God, Almighty. That is who we wait on. My God will hear me. He hears. He knows. He cares. When we wait, he will answer. We don't need to worry that satan will jump in and take over things. God is our protection. If we look to Him, and we wait on him, not only will he renew our strength, but HE WILL HEAR US. We can say "Rejoice not over me, oh my enemy. when I fall, I shall rise." See there will be times when we, as imperfect human beings will fall. But when we do, we just get up. Thats it. He is still there for us and hearing us and loving us. So when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. We are not promised that we will always be in something positive, and rosy, and fun. But we are promised that He will never leave or forsake us and so much more. There will times when things happen that cause a cloud or a shadow or bits of darkness, but see JESUS came into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in Him shall stay in darkness! He will be our light. - This memorizing is awesome!

Micah 7:7&8 As for me I will look to the Lord. I will wait on the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Rejoice not over me Oh my enemy. When I fall, I shall rise. When I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me.
