Worth The Wait 03-23-20

Good day and praise the Lord for mercy and grace. Today the question is, as a Christian what are you waiting for? Do you know? I’m not looking for you to give me the answer; you should want to know the answer for yourself.

Today’s Prayer

Father, prayer is necessary if we are to know You, if we are to grow in understanding, isn’t it? Prayer is repenting of our sins and seeking forgiveness. Prayer is praising You, not just begging You for favors. Prayer is seeking Your presence and Your guidance daily in our lives. Prayer is trusting that You know best. It is seeking to know Your will for our lives, and then being willing to be used by You. It is praying and interceding for those who are hurting or ill, or those who are confused and suffering from difficult situations. Prayer can make a difference, Lord; teach us how to pray correctly. In Jesus name we ask this, Amen.

Let’s eat.

What We Wait For 

Waiting for the Lord from Heaven

1 Thessalonians 1


 1. From: Paul, Silas and Timothy.To: The Church at Thessalonica–to you who belong to God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: May blessing and peace of heart be your rich gifts from God our Father, and from Jesus Christ our Lord. 2. We always thank God for you and pray for you constantly. 3. We never forget your loving deeds as we talk to our God and Father about you, and your strong faith and steady looking forward to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 4. We know that God has chosen you, dear brothers, much beloved of God. 5. For when we brought you the Good News, it was not just meaningless chatter to you; no, you listened with great interest. What we told you produced a powerful effect upon you, for the Holy Spirit gave you great and full assurance that what we said was true. And you know how our very lives were further proof to you of the truth of our message. 6. So you became our followers and the Lord’s; for you received our message with joy from the Holy Spirit in spite of the trials and sorrows it brought you. 7. Then you yourselves became an example to all the other Christians in Greece. 8. And now the Word of the Lord has spread out from you to others everywhere, far beyond your boundaries, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your remarkable faith in God. We don’t need to tell them about it,

9. for they keep telling us about the wonderful welcome you gave us, and how you turned away from your idols to God so that now the living and true God only is your Master. 10.  And they speak of how you are looking forward to the return of God’s Son from heaven–Jesus, whom God brought back to life–and he is our only Savior from God’s terrible anger against sin.


Waiting for the Adoption

Romans 8:23  

And even we Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, also groan to be released from pain and suffering. We, too, wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us–bodies that will never be sick again and will never die.

Waiting for the Hope of Righteousness

Galatians 5:5  

But we by the help of the Holy Spirit are counting on Christ’s death to clear away our sins and make us right with God.

Quote of the Day

One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there’s always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works.
