Hello and praise the Lord,
Welcome to another Memory verse for the week. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Father God, I thank You once again for blessing us all to be here today and I pray that You continue to bless us with wisdom and knowledge of your Word.
In Jesus Name
Amen

This week's verse comes from Psalms 40:1. I just love the Psalms as you can see. LOL

40:1 "I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

One of the hardest things for me to do is to wait patiently for something that I really want or think I deserve. Man, don't you try to hold something from me because I will just go ballistic! I want it and I want it now!

Well that is how I used to be. (Well I still have a little of that in me!) That was before I learned how our Father in Heaven works in our lives. I learned that it is not always about what I want and when I want it. God has a plan for my life that does not always include my plans!
Isaiah 55:8 reminds me, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

And realizing that important fact, I now understand that I have to wait on God and do it with patience.
Ps 27:14 says "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
What more do we need to hear? All through God's Word we are told to wait and we see that those who waited patiently on the Lord were rewarded for their faith in Him.

Last week I have seen so many of my SP friends write posts about answered prayers. And I know for a fact that some of these requests were a long in coming, but they waited patiently and God inclined His ear to them and answered them. And I know of others who are still waiting to hear from God, but who are waiting in faith knowing that God will answer them according to His Perfect Will.

What are you praying for today? And more importantly, are you waiting with patience on the Lord? If not, then ask God to give you patience and peace to help you wait on Him. And remember that those who wait on Him with never be denied.
Thank you

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

May God richly bless you!

In Jesus Name
Amen
