Psalm 27:14 – “Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD!” To wait on the LORD is to demonstrate confident expectation. The Hebrew word for wait may also be translated as ‘hope’. To hope in God is to wait for His timing and His action. Modern culture is in such a hurry, it takes courage to be still when the world is rushing past. God leaves nothing to chance. He does not place a decision before us with the hope that we’ll make the right choice. But until the Lord makes clear what is the way forward, we’ve got to pause and wait. Those who pause are seeking His will—which means that they are praying, searching Scripture, perhaps even fasting. And they are still serving the Lord wherever they can.
