Watch and wait

Pr. 8:34:  “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.”

Contrast to the last 2 days posts, where sin and temptation comes looking for us, alluring and seducing us, we have a choice about what we do with our own lives.

We watch for Jesus Christ’s return daily, while encouraging others to do the same.  We wait on the Lord through daily reading, prayer, and stillness in His presence.  We listen to His precepts and promises.  When we do those things, we are blessed.

Jesus Christ will return to get us!  Until He arrives, we must wait on Him, knowing that His Word in us will not return to Him void and that truly we will be raised up to heaven with Him for eternity.  Let’s continue to serve, worship, and honor Him while we wait, simply because He is God.  He chose to be our Savior.  Thank you, Lord.

 

I’m waiting, I’m waiting on You Lord
And I am hopeful, I’m waiting on You Lord
Though it is painful, but patiently I will wait

And I will move ahead bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I’m waiting I will serve You
While I’m waiting I will worship
While I’m waiting I will not faint
I’ll be running the race even while I wait

I’m waiting, I’m waiting on You Lord
And I am peaceful, I’m waiting on You Lord
Though it’s not easy no, but faithfully I will wait
Yes, I will wait

And I will move ahead bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I’m waiting I will serve You
While I’m waiting I will worship
While I’m waiting I will not faint
I’ll be running the race even while I wait

I will move ahead bold and confident
I’ll be taking every step in obedience, yeah

While I’m waiting I will serve You
While I’m waiting I will worship
While I’m waiting I will not faint

And I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You Lord

I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
