waiting upon the Lord

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. (Psalm 37:9)


Waiting for the Lord to answer my specific prayer.
Waiting for the next step in this walk to be made abundantly clear.
Waiting for His guidance.
Waiting for His wisdom.


Waiting for the Lord to renew my strength.
Waiting for His timing rather than insisting on my own agenda.
Waiting through every test and struggle.
Waiting out the storm.


Waiting to see a glimpse of His greater perspective.
Waiting for His perfect Way to be revealed.
Waiting in obedience and trust.
Waiting as I choose to praise.
Hallelujah to my King!

Hallelujah to my King!


In a culture that demands everything NOW,
I will continue to wait for His answers.
I will continue to pray for His aid.
I will continue to stand firm.
For my Redeemer is faithful to me.


And, I will not be anxious about anything.
I will be careful for nothing.
I will not let my concern to know the answer
Overrule my trust of His proven timing and eternal solution.

Yes, I'm waiting.

Knowing that He hears me.
Knowing that He will answer.
Knowing that He will provide and bless.
Knowing that He is in full control.


Waiting patiently.
Waiting confidently.
Waiting joyfully.
Waiting for His renewal and strength.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Lord, I will wait for your answer.
I will love you with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.
I will believe that you will reveal your answer in perfect time.
So, please come, Lord Jesus...
For your beloved is calling!

Hallelujah to my King!

  1. Thank you Victoria for this, I will post it on FB as a note.... because I know enough of my friends - I included are waiting on the Lord for many different things. This is a perfect encouragement - all should print and put on the front door every morning to read before they walk out.
