  • If we wait on the Lord, we do not have to make decisions on our own, face adversity alone, feel alone, or not wait for something to happen because it is already happening. And the things want are over shadowed by the meeting of the needs because we then know that God will meet that need, but not in our timing but His and we can go forward instead of waiting in confusion and discouragement.

  • 27:14, This verse speaks volumes. To notice that it emphatically mentions to wait on the Lord twice, at the beginning and the end of the verse. There are good things who wait on the Lord, and in the Lord. Be of courage, we can only maintain courage by being obedient to God 's precepts and laws. To have that intimate relationship with the Lord, He will provide the courage, as He will strengthen our heart as we continue to wait on Him. There will come a time that remaining true in God, and standing firm in courage, we will be united in God 's Kingdom.
