Wait For The Lord

20140625-011237-4357060.jpg

I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning,
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.” ~ Psalm 130:5-6 (UKJV)

I give thanks that we have a wonderful God who hears and answers our prayers.
God’s word admonishes us in Hebrews 4:16: “Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need. (WEB)

The word mercy in this verse means kindness or goodwill towards the miserable and the afflicted, joined with the desire to help them.”

Our Creator wants very much to help us. He wants us to give Him our burdens.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time; casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.” -(1 Peter 5:6-7 WEB)

The word “grace” like mercy in the Hebrews scripture means “goodwill, loving-kindness & favor.”

As we give God our burdens, He wants to give us His blessings in return.
“In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.” ~(Philippians 4:6-7 WEB)

PRAYER

Thank You, Heavenly Father, that You cherish each one of us as if we were the only one You had to love. Thank You that You hear our every prayer and that no detail of our life escapes Your notice.
You eagerly wait for us to pour our hearts out to You for You are truly the “God of all comfort who comforts us in all our afflictions…”
You hear and answer every prayer we prayer in Your own way and time. Please give us the faith to believe in You, the hope to wait on You,
the grace to know that You will never disappoint our trust in You.
We love You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

God Hears You

20140331-231201.jpg

“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in His word I do hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning—
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
Psalm 130:5-6 (NKJV)

God Hears You
© 2014 S.D.Harden

God hears you when you cannot speak,
He hears each whispered cry,
He hears when you in secret weep
He hears each longing sigh.

God hears the silent prayers
That form inside as tears,
He hears the prayers you cannot pray,
God understands and hears.

God is listening to your heart
When you feel all alone,
He’s with you in your darkest hour
A light to lead you home.

God knows every thought you think
Before you say a word,
And though you may not cry to Him
Your voice will still be heard.

For God will hear the silent prayers
Of every broken heart,
He’s close to all who are oppressed,
From them He won’t depart.

Wait upon The Lord, oh wait!
And trust that He is near,
Like watchmen for the morning wait,
Oh trust that God will hear.

Trust that God hears every prayer
And there will come a day
When you will see the answer
To every prayer you prayed.

Wait upon The Lord, oh wait
And trust that He will come,
God is listening to your prayers
And answers every one.

God will hear and answer
According to His will,
His love will give us what is best,
Just wait for God, be still.
