When God comes


Today: When God comes

Passage:  Psalm 40 (NIV)Isaiah 40 (NKJV)

 1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him. (Ps 40, NIV)

When we wait before the Lord, it is possible to STOP that waiting in prayer, hope and faith, before time. It is very easy to get tired, waiting

That is why we need patience and wait, till God shows up

If the 120 in the upper room (Acts 2) had decided to stop their prayer after seven days or so, they would have missed the greatest moment

Don’t we usually decide how long we should sit in His presence?

Pray Until Something Happens (PUSH). Do it next time

Out of the many people pressing on to Jesus, there was this one woman who touched Him with faith; Jesus stopped and asked who was that

When we pray and wait, don’t look at other people who didn’t get an answer, in similar conditions/situations. If we believe, God will work. Don’t even listen to the negetive words from others. The word of God is true and we act accordingly

When God hears our cry, He comes and changes our situations

He liftedIsraelout fromEgypt. They had become “settled” there

God knows what is best for us. Sometimes we may be “settled” in a certain place and when God tells us to move, we may not like it

It is important to discern and listen to God’s voice

Sometimes, people listen to “prophets” and the like; there are more false prophets and “simply” prophets, than real ones. If the word they say is from the Lord, God will confirm it in you, some way. He likes to speak to you directly

God put David on a firm rock; this is very important

We see many people and even leaders, who don’t have a stand

One preacher comes and says one thing and evrybody lifts their hands and say “yes” to it. Tomorrow, another one comes and says just the opposite; and everybody says “praise the Lord”. How can that be?

We first need to have a firm foundation for our spiritual life

We need to get a washing of the dirt, by the Lord

Then, we can open our mouth and sing, as He gives us a new song

It is one thing when the Lord gives a song/a message; it is quite another, when a person decides on his/her own to write a song/message/book

I have seen people giving away free CDs and stuff and no one listening to it

On the other hand, if it came from the Lord, people will even pay and buy it

On the day of Pentecost, God put new words, new songs in their mouth

Peter stood up and preached in that anointing, and 3000 were added

It all started with waiting upon the Lord. That is the key to growth/development

Have a blessed time with God


Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for your presence and promise. You have showed up for me many times when I needed you most, and I thank you for that. I admit that it is a long time I waited for you. Help me God, to wait on you again. Amen

When God fills you, He really fills, so that no one can add anything to it
