Wait on the Lord

It was hard for me to get out of bed this morning and get going. Have you ever had those days that you seemed to be running on empty? Or beyond that–even running on the gas fumes lol?

The Lord has been reminding me here lately if I’m too busy to pray or read His Word–I’m just too busy period. Everything can wait till we seek His face.

The enemy can run us pure ragged, if we let him. It’s one of his tactics. To wear us out. Make us give up this race.

Don’t stop. Keep going. You don’t have time for THIS!!! THAT can wait later. HURRY. You are late. You didn’t pray again? Just pray on the way there…Where’s that To Do List again?….Oh, I forgot to find that receipt to exchange that item from the store….Eek! I forgot to pay the car insurance! Does any of this ring a bell to you or can you relate?

This morning I was startled to hear a car horn blowing in my driveway. I muttered under my breathe, “Now who could that be? The mail carrier? I haven’t ordered anything….”

I peeked out the window and saw my SIL (sister-in-law) getting out of her car. I gasped and ran out the door in my pj’s.

Oh no! 😱😭 I had forgotten to meet her at 9:00 a.m. at Walmart to get Chelsea’s baby shower gift for tomorrow. She won’t be able to make it. I apologized profusely!

Last night I was trying to set aside a time to do my checking account statement. I got 2 texts. One says call me.

So busy. Not enough time. But the Lord has been really impressing that the devil will keep abusing you if you keep letting him, slinging you around like a rag doll.

Shut the phone off. Unplug from social media. Turn that tv off. Put on some Christian worship music. Get to bed earlier. Get up earlier to meet with God. Go to your HAPPY Place.

So, I just shut all activities down after my SIL left. Went to my Happy Place. My porch as you all know. This song kept playing in my mind, so I looked it up and listened…Listen to the words. Let His Presence speak to your heart and soul.

I worshipped with tears flowing down my face. I prayed in the Spirit. I didn’t have the words, so I let Jesus make intercession for me. I don’t know what I would do if I could not feel His Presence!

I know there are some who have never felt that sweet peaceful Presence of His. It is so real and tangible! I suggest if you are hungry and thirsty for that Living Water, He will meet you right there in your home! I have heard of people being filled with the Holy Ghost/Spirit right in their living room by themselves. Just Jesus and them.

We are living in a face-paced world! And it’s amping up…We can’t make it without Him! We’ll buckle under the pressure. The heavy burden will crush us.

I had another post I was going to post today, but it will wait.

“Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders–He’ll carry your load, He’ll help you out.”–Psalms 55:22

Jesus said, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.”–Matthew 11:28

  1. Amen Renee! I was in quite a bit of pain this morning and we woke up to our refrigerator not working right. All the stuff in the freezer was thawing and wet. Thankfully we have a big freezer in the garage, so I could transfer everything. You are right, when troubles hit, we need to immediately lift it up to the Lord! My pain is already better this morning and I know He will get us a new fridge even though we don’t have the money for it. He always makes a way and we can trust in Him! Lifting you up in prayer! God bless!

    • I know that somehow God is going to create order from all the chaos, Ryan! Now, if we can just keep putting one foot in front of the other through it all! So sorry to hear of the freezer fiasco and your pain! I will keep you in my prayers friend and brother! 🙏🏼

  2. Great post! We all get to busy sometimes and we have to ‘unplug’ and get our minds back on Jesus. I’m amazed at how you can create such a awesome post from your experiences.😍 I wish I could!

  3. I love love this song! It is so anointed, so powerful, so rich….girl.
    Yes, waiting is one of those postures that we must maintain or else we become yo-yos in the enemy’s hands going thither and yonder. Ugh!
    Great reminder, sis! We must be still and know that He is God! ❤️

      • Dee that’s just what I did! And did the same thing this morning! My hubby had to work this Saturday. He always leaves a little after 3 a.m. This morning I could not go back to sleep, so I got up and prayed. Turned that song on again. Prayed for you and other WP friends here, that all our needs get met! I knew it was going to be another busy day—left out at 9:30 this morning, and I just got home from doing a baby shower for my daughter! Phew it has been a long but enjoyable evening. 😁 😴

      • Just listened to this again – twice! First time was intentional and then the next time after a few other songs, Holy Spirit (my music selector) had it replayed.

        Thank you for faithfully praying, my sister. And a big congrats on the impending birth of your grand babies. Children are gifts to us no doubt, but grandkids – those are some precious jewels ❤️🤗

      • Maybe He’s trying to remind you to wait on Him. I know I keep hearing this message! Even in this morning’s sermon! And last Wednesday night, too!….Ok, Lord, we are listening! We will wait on you! 🙌🏼 💃🏼 Thank you! Grandbabies are a true blessing from God! I have heard people say if they had known how grand they would be, they would have had them first! True statement!

      • Giggles…if only they came first.

        Yes, Lord. We will wait on You. We will wait in Your presence and seek You in all we do. We will not murmur, doubt, grumble or complain. We will trust, believe and keep our eyes steadfast on You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  4. Oh yes!! We need Jesus as desperately as ever! We often neglect to seek Him throughout the day and remain BUSY – Being Under Satan’s Yoke. Also getting filled in the Spirit and rejoicing- that’s where our rest lies!!!

  5. such a great way to take control – turn off the phone and hone in to God…ahhh

    and the verse that came to mind at one point was the part about “making sure we stay aware of the wiles and craftiness of the energy….” and sometimes we need to see the tactics or buttons that get pushed and do exactly what you did – take action…
