Resting in the Lord – Ruth 3:18

“Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD…” Ex. 14:13 
” Sit still… until thou know how the matter will fall…” Ruth 3:18
” Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10

Waiting on the Lord can be a trying experience especially when we want something to go our way. From our perspective, we know what is best for us and how to bring it about. But God’s ways are not ours and His timing is perfect. The hindrances that He puts across our path are there to cultivate in us the life of faith and our dependence upon Him. “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord” (Psalm 37:23) but as Charles Spurgeon rightly noted “so are His stops”. Is there some matter plaguing you today–an issue, an obstacle, a problem that stands in your path? Wait on the Lord and in His time, He will clear the way.

Be still my soul: thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.” — von Schlegel
