A Necessary but Challenging Lesson - I Psalm 27

Believers must learn to wait upon Him.

Have you ever wondered why the psalmist coupled the admonition to wait upon God with encouragement to be strong and courageous? The reason is that sometimes delaying is the hardest thing to do.

Modern culture is in such a hurry. Gotta have it now! Gotta do it now! Can't wait! We've been primed to stay in a permanent state of readiness. It takes courage to be still when the world is rushing past. Everything in us hollers, "Go!" while God whispers, "Wait." But people are quick to act, because they are afraid of missing out on something. Believers who buy into that attitude make a move and then hope God will bless them.

God leaves nothing to chance. He does not place a decision before us with the hope that we'll make the right choice. That would be irresponsible and out of character. The Father is more than willing to show His children what to do, because He is personally interested in their welfare. But until the Lord makes clear what is the way forward, we've got to pause and wait.

Waiting upon God is not passive. It is not lazy. It is not an excuse to be careless. In fact, the opposite is true.

Upcoming Sermon Series
      What really makes for a happy life? A dream job, a bigger house, or a new relationship? If you're always hungry for the next big thing, but frustrated because it never seems to satisfy, you might be Chasing Carrots. It's time to hop off the treadmill and chase after something real. This series is about the things people commonly chase after that only bring fleeting happiness, fulfillment, or validation — things like fame, achievements, approval, fame, or comfort.

Last Week:
      We finish our series on Carols by looking into the Christmas Carol, Go Tell It On The Mountains. These shepherds were told about Jesus, they came to Jesus, they told others about Jesus, and it affected their daily lives. This is what should happen in our lives, after we call out in faith to Christ as our Savior, we then need to tell others about the Savior.
      Sunday's message is usually available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      Next week, we begin a new series called Chasing Carrots. The first topic that we are going to see that we need to stop chasing is Fame.
