Wait For Me

 

Wait for Me
until I rise up

for then I will
restore

taking away your
prideful voices

so you can call on Me
in one accord.

**********

I can wait on You for You are with me.

**********

” ‘Therefore wait for Me,’ says the LORD, ‘until the day I rise up for plunder;’ “

“For I will restore to the people a pure language, that they may all call on the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one accord.”

“In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds in which you transgress against Me, for then I will take away from your midst those who rejoice in your pride, and you shall no longer be haughty in My holy mountain.”

Zephaniah 3:8,9,11. NKJV

Part 2: More Personal Application

Deadheading the little basket of petunias, newly bought, there is more to take.off than blooming. I think about those things You have removed from my life in the last years. How it pinched. How barren and lost I felt without them. Then You say, “Therefore wait for Me.”

Finding Favor

 

With each flood
of pain and trouble

you can come
to Me

and rise up
with My favor

born out of My
suffering.

**********

You establish Yourself as our ark of favor, so we rise up in the midst of pain and suffering.

**********

“The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and He saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. So the LORD was sorry He had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke His heart. And the LORD said, ‘I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing – all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.’ But Noah found favor with the LORD. “

Genesis 6:5-8

Rise Up

 

Rise up, My love
and take My hand
for the rains are
over and done

winter is past
flowers are appearing
your time of singing
has come.

A laid down life has a time of singing.

“My beloved spoke, and said to me: ‘Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come.’ ” Song of Solomon 2:10,11,12 NKJV

Arise

“And when the inhabitants of Jabesh Gilead heard what the Philistines had done to Saul,
all the valiant men arose and traveled all night, and took the body of Saul and the bodies of his sons from the wall of Beth Shan . . .”  1 Samuel 31:11-12

Not too long ago, Larry Who started another blog called Remember the Prisoners because the conditions in North Korea are horrific.

Lord, please help us to rise up and do the right thing as you lead us today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Rise Up

The news is horrific
you want to plug your ears

to close off your mind
but I need you to hear

to arise my Spirit led children
to take action and not fear

to do the right thing despite oppression
to be the body that I steer.
