Day 7 of "10 Days of Waiting"

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Psalm 37:7
 As we wait for Pentecost Sunday (May 19th) and the celebration of the coming of the Holy Spirit as God had promised did you know that waiting brings REST to our souls.  Life can be unfair at times as you know.  Sometimes our biggest challenges are not what happen to us but what happens to other people. Their success, their triumphs and the spoils that can come their way can be a sore spot to us.  Waiting on God helps to remind us of our real treasure, that is found in Christ alone.  God's treasure can not be received by schemes or trickery. It is God's work in us the quiet place as we wait upon Him.  In that place God realigns our values and our perspectives,  He can even challenge our wants and desires so that the person who "prospers in his way" no longer bother us as it did.  We can celebrate the place we find ourselves in as we see God as our supply and He is a good God.  So wait upon the LORD and rest in Him today.
