Seek, Wait, Draw Near

December 23, 2015

Psalm 130:5-6

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.

The words of the Psalm echo through my heart, because I long to remain this anchored to the Word of God.

I am so guilty of being impatient, selfish and fearful that many times I do not continue waiting on the Lord. In fact many times I rush into a decision without even consulting God in prayer.

The words of this Psalmist reveal such a deep trust, and bond with God that has proven more trustworthy than a guaranteed sunrise. He wants to make this point so clear that he even repeats himself.

My hope and prayer this morning is that we would crave this type of faith. That we would work out our salvation with fear and trembling, from today forward with a renewed spirit, longing to trust in the Lord’s word more and more.

Not sure where to start? Here are some soft, loving words from James.

James 4:7-10

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

 

Father in Heaven, humble us in Your sight, break our heart for what breaks Yours LORD, reveal the sin in our hearts and minds, that the blood of Your son Jesus may wash us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Teach us to seek Your Word and Help us to patiently wait for Your Word. In the name of Jesus, the name above all names, Amen!
