Wait on the Lord

Wait on the Lord

“Wait on the Lord” (Ps. 27 vs 14).

How often this is said in the Bible, how little understood! It is what the old monk calls the “practice of the presence of God.” It is the habit of prayer. It is the continued communion that not only asks, but receives. People often ask us to pray for them and we have to say, “Why, God has answered our prayer for you, and you must now take the answer. It is awaiting you, and you must take it by waiting on the Lord.”

This it is that renews the strength, until we mount up with wings as eagles, run and are not weary, walk and are not faint. Our hearts are too vast to take in His fullness at a single breath. We must live in the atmosphere of His presence till we absorb His very life. This is the secret of spiritual depth and rest, of power and fullness, of love and prayer, of hope and holy usefulness. “Wait, I say, on the Lord.”

I am waiting in communion at the blessed mercy seat, I am waiting, sweetly waiting, on the Lord;

I am drinking, of His fullness; I am sitting at His feet; I am hearkening to the whispers of His word.

Culled from Days of Heaven on Earth


Wait on the Lord
Wait, wait
Stay with Lord
Stay, stay
Build up your strength
Build up your strength

I will stay at the altar
To drink of the living waters
Till I overflow
I’Il be satisfied
For this is what the nations need
