The Importance of Having the Peace Of Christ

"The Importance of Having the Peace Of Christ"
by David Wilkerson - November 13, 2006

Dearly Beloved:


I am speaking to those who are in such a trying situation
that it will take a miracle to remedy it. Perhaps someone
reading this is at the point of total despair.

Thank God for all who are enjoying a season of blue skies,
good health, a good job, a good marriage - and all is well.
Praise God! Give him much thanks.

But most believers I know are being tested. Some very godly
people have endured so much pain and anxiety, they have
uttered those desperate words of Isaiah 40:27, "My way is
hid from the Lord, and the justice (help) due me escapes
the notice of my God."

Here is the Word you need:

"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint"
(Isaiah 40:31).

How does one wait on God? I suggest three things:

1. Quit thinking about your situation and begin focusing
your mind on the Lord. "As the eyes of servants look unto
the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto
the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord
our God." The foundation of waiting on God is making him
the object of our thoughts.

2. Be patient, waiting for God to answer prayer in his time
and way. Patient waiting is to hope and trust in the face
of all discouragement and disappointment. "You have need of
patience." In your thinking, God may seem too slow, but he
heard your very first cry - and every prayer since. Often,
the answer comes in a way you could not possibly perceive.

3. Pray often - daily - with expectation. Where there is no
expectation of an answer, there cannot be waiting on God.
That is the heart and soul of this waiting. Why would
anybody pray without expecting an answer? "They that come
to him must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder
of them that diligently seek him." What is his reward?
Renewal of your strength.
