It's Worth The Wait!!!  

A Word of Encouragement
  


Dear Friends in the Faith:

Not long we took a trip to Atlanta and while in the Olympic City we decided to purposefully encounter some of their southern cuisine.  So what did we do?  We found our way to Gladys Knight's "Chicken and Waffles."  We had been traveling all day long and we could smell the food out side but could not go in.  You see, there was a line nearly out of the door.  We had to do something that none of us like to do.  We had to stand in line and just wait.

Okay let's cut through the chase and admit it.  Waiting gets on our last nerve.  But, all of us are waiting on something.  Sick people are waiting to be healed, some single people are waiting to be married, children are waiting to be teenagers, teenagers are waiting to be grown, grown folks are waiting to be wealthy and have someone take care of them for a change, sisters are waiting to exhale, older people are waiting to be respected, college kids are waiting to graduate and our friends in Haiti are waiting on relief.  Everyone is waiting on something.

The healing news for today however it this.  There is someone that you can wait on and when the wait is over you can shout these words with passion, purpose and power, it was worth the wait!  In Psalm 27 David brings healing to every waiting soul when gives a word of illumination to those in darkness by declaring that "The Lord is my light and my salvation..."  He moves from illumination to consecration.  He tells that he only desires one thing from the Lord and that is to "...dwell in the house of the Lord all of the days of His life..."  After the word of illumination and consecration he then downloads a word elevation when he shouts, "...when father and mother forsake then the Lord will take me up..."  In other words, when what was supposed to hold me up collapses the Lord shall keep me in His hands.  But, he concludes with a word of hope and healing for everyone that is waiting on the Lord he says, "Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart, wait I say on the Lord!"  
So what is the real blessing in waiting on the Lord?

Your portion is from above.  The reason why waiting on the Lord is so worth it, is because what He wants you to have is greater than what you thought you could have ever received!  The word "wait" used in the text is quavah and it is in the piel stem and the imperfect mood.  It means to look to a larger source to have needs met.  Like a child looks to a parent so we look to God.  The only problem is that you do not get what you want when you want it.  So the only way to get it is to wait for it!  The shouting news of the day however is this, everything that you need is available through your source and the storehouse is full!  In other words, God's it!  Healing...He has your portion.  Deliverance...He has your portion.  Direction...He has your portion.  Your portion is in His hands so wait on Him!!!

Secondly, waiting on God is worth it because your perseverance comes from within.  You will never gain strength hanging around with weak people.  This is why you always want to be found with saints that are strong in the faith that have been through hell and hurt, and came out of it with a testimony and a scar.  It is because you discover that the God that is within their soul kept them and gave them strength!  David says it this way, "...be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart..."  This should read like this, "...and He shall make you tough and cause you to endure from the inside."  Let's be honest, waiting can make you want to quit.  But, when you feel like giving up talk like the people that have made it and say "I am going to hold on to the Lord until my break through comes!"  And when you do this, strength comes from the inside to keep you and cause your waiting to be your blessing!

And lastly, waiting on God is worth it because your plight is in His plans.  Oh My God this is soooooo wonderful!  Listen to this and put it in your spirit, the reason why you need to wait on God is because what you want for you is not good enough for you.  In other words, God's plans are much better than your plans.  So, learn how to wait!  The Psalmist ends the verse the same way he begins the verse.  In short, this verse will bless you going and coming.  It says, "Wait on the Lord.....wait on the Lord."  It is written twice because the Hebrew language does not have punctuation marks.  So there was no way to shout a phrase, so they just wrote it twice.  So look at this four word phrase as if it were written like this, "WAIT ON THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!"  Why?  Because your steps are being order by the Lord and right now where you are is not a moment of conclusion it is a step in your progression that will end in a celebration of victory.  So wait on God because it is worth it!

We waited for a good while at Gladys Knight's restaurant.  But, when we got ready to leave people were walking slow with doggie bags in hand and tooth pics dangling from their lips.  And one dear friend said to me as we boarded the bus to go to the hotel, "It took a while, but it was worth the wait."  Now if waffles from Gladys were worth waiting on, surely the God of heaven is worth your wait too!  Wait on the Lord and know that your best days are yet to come!

Your Friend and His Servant,


Dr. John R. Adolph

AUGUST 5, 2009
Okay my cousin that is 26yrs old has 4children......She has been in and out of prison and on drugs and keeps having babies that she cannot afford.....I was gonna get her oldest girl from her about 3yrs ago but she so called straightened up and I didnt bother....All of a sudden this weekend she calls CPS and tells them that she doesnt want her kids anymore and that she doesnt want any of the family to have them.  I was so heart broken..2 kids belong to one dad and 2 kids belong to another one.  So the oldest two kids are 5 and 7 and the youngest are 3 and 2.  The oldest 2 are with my uncle (thier grandpa)  which he is not physically able to support both of them and the youngest 2 are with thier dad's side of the family and their dad's mama (thier grandmother) is taking care of them since the dad is on drugs too....................  So now My husband and I have only been married for 1month now and I mean we have the means to take care of one but not more than that.....We have good jobs, 3bedroom house and a large fenced in front/back yard for her to play in...but my concern is ...am I ready to give up my freedom to make sure at least one of the kids arent in the generational curse of drugs and prison and have a healthy loving life.........I find myself being very selfish......because I have a year and a half left of skool and hubby and I dont have anykids.........but at the same time.......I use to pray for children and I used to pray that I got custody of the oldest...now that my prayer was answered..Medhelp what do I do.....................I want to do what God wants me to do ............And Im not sure if I should get her and raise her or should I just pick her up everynow and then and spend a lil time with her............When my DH heared about this his first reaction was ........"baby do you want to get her" and I was kinda shock at how fast he asked me if I wanted to get her.........so We are just boggled............ps my mama and I are gonna take her shopping on Sunday to get all her skool clothes.......I need all the opinions and all the prayer I can get!!!!!!!!

PRAYER DAY?????????

Jan 12, 2010 - 6 comments


What about the 17th of every month?  That way its not too soon so everyone can hear about it, but soon enough to start so we can get these babies concieved !!!!!  If its an okay day let me know and then we can spread the word for Every woman that is trying to have a baby to join in whether they are medhelp sistas or a family memeber thats trying. That way we spread the word and that day can be our day to go to God for his blessings!!!   OMG I cant wait...

ps.  just want everyone to know Im not perfect and I get weary at times as well but when I met this prophet at church that came up to me and told me to stop worrying about having a baby and announced that God said I will have children and that they will come from my womb...and I didnt even know this lady....I know there is a God and I know what he promised me....that is why Im always speaking so proudly and highly of God and his blessings....

!st the prophet came to me and said not to worry that my husband was closer than I knew..that his name was gonna be Joseph and when she was done in my heart I asked God what about children....she came back to me and said not to worry that my babies will come from my womb.......NOW IF THAT AINT GOD.......!!!!!!

2MONTHS after she said that I met a Joseph....2 months after meeting him he came down from Florida to visit me.....he never left and a year later we got married july 4th 2009....so that is why im excited and so spiritual and is keeping my faith because only God knew why my heart was aching...and he wispered in my ear and told me what I needed to hear....CAN I GET AN AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO LADIES LETS DO THIS AND PRAY TO GOD FOR CONCIEVING IN 2010 !!!!!!!!!!
