19.10.23: Wait for God (for J.)

I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning (Psalm 130:6; NIV).

1. Throughout the silent watches
Of the night,
Just wait for God alone,
For He is near.

2. No need to say a word –
He knows them all.
Just wait with God alone,
For He is here.

3. Our Father lives in you,
And you, in Him,
So wait in God alone,
Just wait, and share

4. The darkness, dryness, silence –
All is well:
Together, you are one,
And this is prayer.

The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).


Verse 1:

I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night. Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings (Psalm 63:6-7; CSB).

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD (Psalm 27:14; NIV). 

The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart (Psalm 34:18; NKJV). 

Verse 2:

Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely (Psalm 139:4; NIV). 

The LORD is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it! (Genesis 28:16; NLT). 

I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! (Psalm 139:7; NLT). 

Verse 3:

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done (Philippians 4:6; NLT).

Verse 4:

If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the LORD and rely on your God (Isaiah 50:10; NLT). 

Moses approached the thick darkness where God was (Exodus 20:21; NIV). 

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water (Psalm 63:1; NIV).

The LORD is in his holy Temple. Let all the earth be silent before him (Habakkuk 2:20; NLT). 

Be silent before the LORD, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NLT). 

We are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people” (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT). 

All is well (1 Kings 5:4; NLT).
