In this message, Pastor John Lindell shares an encouraging sermon titled, “Waiting for the Lord to Work.” Join us as we study God’s Word and deepen our understanding of how to approach seasons of waiting on the Lord. Our prayer is that this message would put an anticipation in your heart for the incredible things God has planned for your life as you wait upon Him!
Waiting for the Lord to Work
1st While we are waiting God is delivering us
Proverbs 20:22b ESV
…wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
Psalm 40:1-3 NIV
I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.
Psalm 37:9b ESV
…those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land.
2nd While we are waiting God is teaching us
Psalms 25:5 ESV
Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
Psalm 25:14-15 MSG
God-friendship is for God-worshipers; They are the ones he confides in. If I keep my eyes on God, I won’t trip over my own feet.
3rd While we are waiting He is strengthening us
Psalm 27:14 KJV
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Isaiah 40:31 ESV
but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
1. to tarry, wait (for, on, upon)
2. to bind together by twisting
Isaiah 49:23 ESV
Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who wait for me shall not be put to shame.”
