"So the Lord must wait for you to come to Him so He can show you His love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for His help. O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. He will be gracious if you ask for help. He will surely respond to the sound of your cries." ~ Isaiah 30:18,19, NLT


Do I feed the flesh or do I feed the spirit? Do I run to the Father or do I take my time wandering along twirling blades of grass, picking up every stone and watching every anthill like a child who doesn't want to come in from play? You know the child. Momma calls for supper and the little darling suddenly has selective hearing.


Isaiah promises that God will wait for us. In fact, the scripture says He MUST wait for us. Why? Because God is not a man that He should lie. By His very nature He is longsuffering and merciful. Through His Covenant He has promised to be faithful to His children. So He waits. He waits because He longs to slather us with His unfailing love. He longs to lift us up above the fray. He longs to immerse us in His peace.


Will you run to Him today? He is waiting with outstretched hands that bear the scars of our sin. His love conquers all. But the choice is ours.

Father, Your grace, Your faithfulness, Your mercy and love are astounding and so undeserved. Turn our eyes upon You. Focus our attention on Your love. It is so comforting to know that You wait for us - that You MUST wait for us - because of Your Word. May we be a blessing to You, Lord. May we glorify You in all things. And may we never take You for granted. Stir up a hunger and thirst within us that only You can satisfy. We run to You Lord and fall at Your feet in adoration. We love You, Lord.
