August 1, 2019: SOAP #3528: Isaiah 65-66; Psalm 62; John 3S

Scripture:  Psalm (MESSAGE) 62:1 God, the one andonly"I'll wait as long as he says. Everything I need comes from him, so whynot? 2 He's solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, animpregnable castle: I'm set for life.

Observation:   EugenePeterson's The Message is not a translation of the Bible, but a paraphraseattempting to communicate the meaning in words and phrases that are morecommonly used and more easily understood. 

God is worth waiting for!  Everything isat His fingertips.  Although He lets ushave choices and lets our choices affect us and those around us, He remains theultimate authority.  He responds to thosewho trust Him. 

Application: 'So why not?'  Why should I not wait for God"'wait as longas He says?'  I believe that He is theCreator of the Universe.  I believe thatHe is loving and wisely working according to a plan for my life.  I believe that He has purpose for me. 

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, even when it takes longerthan I like, I know that it is worth waiting on you.  I can trust you to provide my needs.  I want you to be able to trust me to give youthe praise and glory for all you do and have done for me.  Amen
