  •  I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. Psalms 130:5

    This verse gives us two specific instructions: wait for the Lord and put your hope in his word.

    So many times we want to rush ahead of the Lord. We think we know what action to take and how to proceed, but the Bible clearly instructs us to wait for the Lord to work, to instruct and to lead.

  •  “Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord” (Philippians 3:1). When we become Christians we have the “joy of the Lord.” But over time and through many experiences some seem to lose their joy.

    King David lost his joy and came to the Lord with the request – “Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation” (Psalm 51:12). For David it was adultery, but there are many other joy killers in life. Our concern today is how to restore or maintain the joy God gives us.
