Direction in dilemma
‘Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.’
Suggested Further Reading:
In what way are we to stand still, dear friends?
Surely it means among other things, that we are to wait awhile.
Time is precious, but there are occasions when the best use we can make of it, is to let it run on.
If time flies, that is no reason why I am always to fly.
Every experienced man knows that by being wrongly busy for one hour, he may make mischief which a lifetime would hardly rectify. If I run without waiting to enquire the way, I may run upon my ruin.
Many who have been very busy in helping themselves, would have done better waiting upon their Lord.
Prayer is never a waste of time.
A man who would ride post-haste, had better wait till he is perfectly mounted, or he may slip from the saddle.
He who glorifies God by standing still, is better employed than he who diligently serves his own self-will.
Wait awhile then.
Wait in prayer, however.
Call upon God, and spread the case before him; tell him your difficulty, and plead his promise of aid.
Express your unstaggering confidence in him; wait in faith, for unfaithful, untrusting waiting, is but an insult to the Lord.
Believe that if he shall keep you tarrying even till midnight, yet he will come at the right time; the vision shall come and shall not tarry.
Wait in quiet patience, not murmuring because you are under the affliction, but blessing God for it; never murmuring against the second cause, as the children of Israel did against Moses; never wish you could go back to the world again, but accept the case as it stands, and put it as it stands simply and with your whole heart, without any self-will, into the hand of your covenant God.
There is a time to be swift and a time to be slow (James 1:19).
The Christian should be active, but not an activist; advancing in faith, but not rushing ahead (Proverbs 21:5).
‘Why should I wait for the Lord any longer?’ (2 Kings 6:33) is the language of unbelief.
‘He that believeth shall not make haste’ (Isaiah 28:16).
Does your busy timetable allow for you to be still and know that the Lord is God (Psalm 46:10)?

Marvelous God Almighty,
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
I want Jesus to enter into my heart and make me free.
I confess that He is the son of God.
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.

not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.”....
Reflection and inspiration from the
"Prince of Preachers,"
Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for,
who are reading this right now.
Show them a new revelation of Your love and power.
Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy..
Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace.
Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs.
Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings.
