Day 40

by John Murray


Waiting, Resting, Trusting


Key Verse: Psalm 27:14) Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.


The Lenten season has pointed us to the pinnacle of our faith, the Cross. In essence Christ’s journey to Calvary began in Bethlehem. As we consider the incarnation, then the life and ministry of Jesus ending in his sacrifice, we are faced with how its meaning and purpose apply to us personally.


We look beyond the historical Jesus to see him as the Son of God who died in our place, the reality of which surpasses our understanding. The truth of it demonstrates the unconditional love of God.


As we respond to that love by faith we are privileged to be brought into the family of God. And as a child of God we find ourselves in a place of trust, of rest and waiting for the second coming of Christ. Thus we wait, we rest and we trust for the day when, as the hymn says, “our faith will be sight” and we enjoy his presence forever.


Prayer:  “Lord, grant us the faith to trust, to rest and wait patiently for you.”


Scripture Readings: Psalm 27, Job 19:21-27a, Hebrews 4:1-16, 8:1-11.
