Scriptural references for:
Waiting upon the Lord does not mean sitting
around doing nothing and waiting for the Lord to suddenly appear in the
clouds or to perform some great miracle.
Waiting upon the Lord means to wait on the
Lord like a waiter serves a guest at a table; taking the guest's
order and filling the order with dignity and patience.
Brethren, we must serve the Lord with patience
and longsuffering all the days of our lives without grumbling nor
complaining, but with thankful heart filled to overflowing with zeal
born of the hope of His coming.
This is what is meant by the scripture, But
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
walk and not faint.
