Covenant Relationships: Standing strong in faith, Waiting on the Lord.
Philippians 4:6-7 God’s Word teaches us to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,
For some of us, this is hard, we want things now, right now and there are some that have what my mom calls the “patience of a saint”. Either way, God does things in His time, not ours. He wants us to have the best and He wants us to be ready to receive the best when it comes our way. Psalm 27 encourages us to wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart. Don’t just run out to the first man or woman and give up your pearls, don’t cast your good into someone that is not ready to receive you, and cannot not or do not know how to appreciate you. Most of us have done it, but it’s important to know that we don’t have to stay in the mess that we’re in, or settle for a relationship where there is more sadness than joy. Just because things didn’t work out the first, second or even third, don’t be unequally yoke. Your’re better than that. God wants us to be in a covenant relationship, a person that is equally yoked. Trust and believe with all your heart that God will bring the right person into your life.We need to line our selves up with the Word of God, that’s what the couple below did…God blessed this young lady who is a single mom, (but not for long) with a wonderful God fearing praying man!!! She lined her life up with the Word of God, trusted in Him to supply her needs and now she walks around the office with a smile on her face showing off her engagement ring. Psalm 37:3-4 3 Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
