Wait on the Lord
All God’s plans are carefully made,
He never acts on a whim,
And we miss the greatest blessings
When we fail to wait on Him.
Oft’ times we run on out ahead…
What a foolish human trait!
We’d just rather do things our way…
Than to quietly trust and wait.
Waiting takes patience, confidence,
And faith in our Lord above;
It takes trusting His sovereign hand,
While resting in His great love;
It takes prayer—communing with Him
And believing in His Word—
Hearing His still small voice within…
And obeying what is heard.
Let us not murmur and complain
In those times of affliction,
But instead let us trust our Lord
And hold to our conviction;
His timing is always perfect—
He’s never one second late,
And His way is always the best…
O friend, let us learn to wait…
Wait on the Lord.
“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”
“They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be
and they shall walk, and not faint.”
(Ps 27:14: Isa 40:31)
