Wait Courageously


Have you ever raced over to the motor vehicles department on your lunch hour? Like me you grip the wheel hoping that the line will be short because you have a limited amount of time. Too often we treat waiting on the Lord like the frustratingly slow line ahead of us as we are forced to sit while those in front of us are served. We stare at the floor studying the pattern on the tiles. We wonder if our turn will ever come.

But waiting on God is not like that at all. With God our waiting time is the most productive part of all. In the silent moment He comes to sit along side of us. Like the Samaritan woman at the well we find Jesus there waiting for us. On His lips is the word of life if we will listen for it. In His hands is a cup filled to the brim with living water.

Wait with strong courage because it is especially in the wait that He will speak and strengthen our hearts!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.

    Amen.
