Weekly Word Of Inspiration by Rev. Stephen Pogue ‘Wait Patiently On The Lord’

When you find your rest in the Lord you will also have more joy and peace in your life.

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because
of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”
Psalm 37:7

There have been times in each of your life when you have been so tired that all you wanted to do was lay down and go to sleep. There have been other times when you were so tired you could not fall asleep, although your body was tired; your minds were still racing with the events of the day, and the things that you had to face in your lives. There have been other times when you tried to rest, but there was something or someone keeping you from the rest you so desperately sought.
Each of you need your physical rest to be the best that you can be, but you also need your spiritual rest from the things that life throws at you each day. You can look around and see people who may not be doing the right thing seemingly getting ahead while you struggle to make ends meet, and sometimes you wonder why.  It is then, you must take it all to the Lord in prayer.
The Scripture reminds us, “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him: fret not ourselves because of those who prosper in their way, because of the people who bring wicked devices to pass.”
 I encourage you today––find your rest in the Lord.  Wait on the Lord patiently, and He will bring to pass those things in your life that you have been seeking Him for.  Do not allow yourself to be absorbed in what anyone else is doing or what anyone else may have. Keep trusting in the Lord to bring to pass the things He has spoken for your life. Stop worrying about things you cannot change, and find your rest in the Lord.  When you find your rest in the Lord you will also have more joy and peace in your life. When you are not worrying about things that you have no control over; you cease looking at everyone else, and begin to concentrate on what the Lord is doing in your life.
The Lord is doing some great things in your life, and He will see you through every trial you face.  I will keep my eyes on Jesus no matter what, for I know He has great things prepared for my life.  Since I am trusting in the Lord always, I have no doubt, It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
