Waitin' On Tha Lord Livin' In Tha Fast Lane

Waitin' is one of tha hardest things for me ta do. We live in such a hurry taday. I see women puttin' on their blush 'n mascara as they drive ta work. Men talkin' on cell phones while readin' notes walkin' down tha street. Kids are bein' pulled by their parents ta hurry in ta school. Rush, rush, rush! There's no waitin' livin' in tha fast lane.

So, how do ya wait on tha Lord? Please read A.B. Simpson's Devotional below. Christians need ta wait on tha Lord more!

A Devotional by A.B. Simpson

"Come ye yourselves apart" (Mark vi. 31).

One of the greatest hindrances to spirituality is the lack of waiting upon God. You cannot go through twenty-four hours with two or three breaths of air, in the morning, as you sip your coffee.

But you must live in the atmosphere, and you must breathe it all day long. Christians do not wait upon God enough. It needs hours and hours daily of spiritual communion with the Holy Spirit to keep your vitality healthful and full. Every moment should find you breathing out yourself into Christ, and breathing afresh His life, and love and power.

God is waiting to send us the Holy Spirit. He is longing to bless us. His one business is to quicken and sustain our spiritual life. He has nothing else to do with His infinite and great resources. Let us receive Him. Let us live in Him. Let us give to Him the joy of knowing that His infinite grace has not been bestowed in vain, but that we appreciate and improve the blessings which He oft has so freely bestowed.

Lord, help me this day to dwell in Thee as the flower in the sunshine, as the fish in the sea, living in Thy love as the atmosphere and element of my being.

When You're Waitin' On Tha Lord?
1. You pursue Him - Psalm 62:2  He only is my rock and my salvation...
2. You'll listen ta Him - Proverbs 8:34  Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
3. You'll look ta Him - Hebrews 12:2  ...looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith...
4. You're gonna live for Him - 2 Corinthians 5:15  ...and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Things Ta Think 'Bout:

1. Are ya waitin' on Him?

2. Are ya livin' for Him?

Lord, give us patience ta wait on you. In tha name of Jesus, amen.
