REST AND WAIT ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
by Sam Sweg
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint
Many Christians try to achieve their victory through their own pride, intellect, strength, or works. The Lord Jesus Christ will Never do anything against your will. As long as you think you can achieve the victory on your own, He will not interfere in your life unless you call upon Him!
Psalm 34:17 “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles.”
Usually after a person tries everything in their own strength, pride and the powers of this world. Their situation grows more hopeless, at that point they cry out to the Lord Jesus Christ for help. The Lord can only move on your behalf when you give the situation completely over to Him!
Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth
1 Peter 5:7 Amplified Bible Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
Why wait until your situation is hopeless? Learn to live every moment every day of your life with a complete Total Trust and Reliance on the Lord Jesus Christ to take care of every need in your life! Pride in ones life says I can do it on my own. When you live your life through Him, He will live through you with a Great Divine Love and Power, So all the world can see that Jesus Christ is Alive and Living through His Believers! When you give The Lord Jesus Christ The Glory before all the world all of Heaven will respond to your needs. Look and rest in Him and your Joy will be full.
Psalm 37:34 Wait on the LORD, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.
Philippines 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
