security in waiting…

We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
Psalm 33:20-22

At times… people say and do things… intentionally or unintentionally… that pierce our hearts… hurt out feelings… wound our spirits…

At these times… it’s important to remember… that as… we wait on… hope in… the Lord… He is… our shield…

In Christ… we are the temple of God…

Do you not know that you are God’s temple
and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?
1Corinthians 3:16
Today… as I wrestled with a hurt… He graciously reminded me… His temple… is the most secure place to be…
Ezekiel… had a vision regarding the temple…
After that, the man brought me into the sanctuary of the Temple. He measured the walls on either side of its doorway, and they were 10 1/2 feet thick. The doorway was 17 1/2 feet wide, and the walls on each side of it were 8 3/4 feet long. The sanctuary itself was 70 feet long and 35 feet wide. 
Then he went beyond the sanctuary into the inner room. He measured the walls on either side of its entrance, and they were 3 1/2 feet thick. The inner room of the sanctuary was 35 feet long and 35 feet wide. “This,” he told me, “is the Most Holy Place.”
Then he measured the wall of the Temple, and it was 10 1/2 feet thick. …
Ezekiel 41:1-5 NLT
Walls 10 1/2 feet thick… protected the inner sanctuary… in this plan for the earthly temple… but if you go on and read… there were additional walls… 8 3/4 feet thick for the outer courts… The Most Holy Place… was physically secure…
Now for Believers… our hearts… are the Most Holy Place… the dwelling place of God’s Spirit… and if His plans to protect an earthly temple were so fortified… how much more fortified will our hearts be spiritually…?
His… unfailing love… rests upon us…

Remember… as you wait on the Lord… He will keep you secure… do not let others define your worth… do not let your feelings lead you astray…
Waiting on Him… is the most secure… place… to… be…
