Do NOT Go, BEFORE You WAIT! - Psalm 37:1-9

Greetings!
 
Have you ever wanted to just go clean off on somebody?  I am not referring to the polite bowing out of a moment of tension where tempers are raised.  I am referring to a time in your distant or not so distant past when your assessment determined that one good telling off would do that person some good?  Have you ever been there?  Have you ever done that?  Well, today, I just wanted to give you a simple reminder and a word of warning AGAINST such behavior which is UN-becoming of a child of God whose conversation should always be seasoned with grace.
 
Ladies and Gents, DO NOT GO ON or OFF BEFORE YOU WAIT!!! 
 
For you see, there will be moments when it appears that your enemy – internal or external – is strong and mighty but our Scripture for today tells us to FRET NOT THYSELF because of evil doers and DO NOT be jealous or envious of those who continue in sin and are not in right standing with God.  The Scripture assures us that they will SURELY be cut down like the grass and wilt like cut flowers disconnected from their roots and burning in the heat of the noonday sun.  FRET NOT THYSELF!  BlogFam, DO NOT GO ON or OFF BEFORE YOU WAIT!!! 
 
On the other hand, you MUST -
Psalm 37:3-7
TRUST in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
DELIGHT thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
COMMIT thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
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.
 
BlogFam, PLEASE BE CLEAR – Just because YOU are waiting, it does NOT mean that others around you will be WAITING around for your prayers to be answered AND your waiting period will not demand that they be sensitive to your frustration.  Time and people will move right on and along while YOU are still waiting!  It might even look like they are getting ahead of you. It might look like others are prospering and leaving you behind.  It might look like people who have no godly fear are rejoicing over your season of stillness.  BUT my sistas and brothas, REST in the Lord! PLEASE know that our God sees all and God hears all and God KNOWS IT ALL!  Just because YOU are waiting, you have NOT been instructed to prove you are waiting on God or defend why you are waiting on God or to make sure everybody knows you are waiting on God.  ALL you must DO is TRUST – DELIGHT – COMMIT – REST – and WAIT!  DO NOT GO ON or OFF BEFORE YOU WAIT!  These are the things you MUST DO in this season.  TRUST – DELIGHT – COMMIT – REST –and WAIT!  Do NOT allow the enemy – internal or external – to get you off track by false evidence that appears to be real.  DO NOT hinder your own blessing by going on when God has not ordered your steps or by going off in anger because you are still waiting while others are moving on. 
 
While you are waiting, "Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that WAIT upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. " Ladies and Gents, there is TOO much at stake for you to MISS out on the blessings that come during and after you wait!  The changes that this text points to are the changes NOT only to your situation, but the changes to yourself.  YOU will be changed for the better when you WAIT on God.  Do NOT cut off your own blessing because of the evil thoughts or words or actions out of your own heart during this waiting period.  Just WAIT on the Lord and the Lord will handle them and work on/in you so that when your season of inheritance arrives, you WILL be fit and ready to embrace the blessings of God that are more than worthy of your wait.
 
 
God Loves You and I do too!
