Psalm 27:14 wait on The Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say on The Lord. ~ Waiting is not passive but is an action verb and requires us to move into action and a place of expectancy. Wait means to bind together, to expect. It means to stay in a place of expectation until something happens or someone arrives. It’s like when we are going to go out with some friends or we are waiting for someone to come over or pick us up, we prepare before they get there. We make ourselves ready so that when they show up, we are ready to move into action. We don’t wait for them to get there before we prepare ourselves yet that is what many of us do when it comes to the things of God. We say we believe God and are waiting on God but we haven’t done the first thing to get ready.
As Christians, we have a responsibility to get ready, to prepare ourselves. We can’t just sit in idleness and expect God to do it for us. No, that’s not how it works. He’s already done it for us on Calvary. WE ACTIVATE it by releasing our faith and waiting on the Lord in expectation to see the manifestation of it. As we release our faith by getting into a place of readiness and expectation, God will meet us and strengthen us. He will give us encouraging signs along the way to strengthen us and encourage us so that faith can stay active and well bringing forth the end result of a transformed life and the manifestation of the promise of God.
