7 Lion of JudahPosted: December 10, 2011
I am working overtime this week. So this post is from Marguex’ writing last summer.
In having my quiet time on my porch with my kitty watching the birds this past summer I got a picture of the Lord. I have often wondered why He doesn’t just take the enemy out now. Why wait?
When a cat watches and waits it wants to be sure of fully getting its prey. So it waits until the fullness of time; sometimes for a very long time. So it is with the Lion of Judah. He wants the possibility of any lasting effect of the enemy’s past work on us to be nil. He doesn’t want this coming back on us. So He watches and waits until the fullness of time when He can eradicate it from our lives.
So it is, in our waiting, again and again, His goodness in watching over us. He is not slow. He is right on time. He loves us. We can trust Him.
But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy Name. May Your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in You. Psalm 33:18-22
Waiting on and trusting in Him,
