Hurry Up and Wait
Ninety miles a minute, life's a circus and you're in it! Too afraid to admit it, you're spinning out of control. Slow down to the rhythm of right now. Rest for a moment and feel the burden lift off your shoulders. Wait on the Lord and He’ll renew your strength so you can run and not grow weary. Hurry up and wait!
Psalms 118:8 - “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” Isaiah 55:9 - “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Psalms 4:4 - “Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.” Psalms 130:5 - “I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.” Psalms 27:14 - “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Lamentations 3:25 - “The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.” Isaiah 40:31 - “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.” 1Thessalonians 2:13 - “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.”
This fun little video and song is a reminder that in spite of the craziness of this world, God is in control. If we keep focused on the LORD and wait on Him, He provides Hope and truth through His Word, He will strengthen our hearts and take care of our needs. Be sure you’re not looking at things through the world’s eyes, but through spiritually-discerning eyes and don’t believe everything you hear or read! Stick to the truth of God’s Word, be still, seek Him, trust Him, talk to Him, wait on Him!
