He’s Waiting

October 9, 2010 Donna New

Isaiah 30:18 Therefore the Lord is waiting to show you mercy, and is rising up to show you compassion, for the Lord is a just God. Happy are all who wait patiently for Him.

There’s an appointed time, a fullness of time, that He’s waiting on and longing for the moment to come for Him to show us mercy.  We have to wait on it expectantly and longingly also. If we earnestly wait on Him we are happy and to be envied. What we’re waiting on is more than simple mercy. The amplified Bible puts it this way those “who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy and His matchless unbroken companionship.] All of that is Him, it’s in His Name, His character. It’s what, Who we’re waiting on.

But when that time comes He will stand up for us. “He is rising to show us compassion.” Most of the time in God’s word He is seated on His throne. And that’s good because He controls the happenings of the Universe from there. There’s another place Jesus stood at His throne and it was as Stephen was being martyred. Stephen said (Acts 7:56) “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” So when He stands it carries with it great importance, it’s a precious gesture of honor to us and favor on us.

Chris Tomlin sings a song and the opening lines are, “Holy, Uncreated One, Your beauty fills the skies. But the glory of Your majesty is the mercy in Your eyes.” We’re all in need of mercy and compassion. May He stand today to give you yours.
