At His Right Hand

At His Right Hand by Kirk Hunt

The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

Psalms 110:1 NKJV

God invites you to sit at His right hand, a place of dignity, confidence and safety. Your enemies eventually will serve you. Your concerns and issues will soon be part of your testimony about God’s provision and care.

All too often we take too much upon ourselves. The sovereign God of the universe commands us to rest while He works. The hard part, often, is waiting in quiet reliance on God.

While we sit, God is doing what we cannot. While we wait, He uses His power to do what we cannot under any circumstances. And at the end, we receive in peace and dignity what only His power delivers.

We are human and want control. We want it our way, now. Wait for God to give you more and better than you know or understand. Wait to receive blessings and benefits that no one will be able to take away from you.

Sit on the favored side of His throne. Wait while He delivers eternal pleasures. It will be the desire of your heart, that you did not know you wanted.

Think: At His right hand is everything I need and want, delivered by my adversaries.

Pray: “Lord, help me to be obedient and patient while You work for me.”

Love Without Limits

Love Without Limits by Kirk Hunt

 

Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.   When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

John 11:5-6 KJV

Martha, Mary and Lazarus had the distinction of being close, intimate friends of Jesus.   You would think that hearing of Lazarus’ illness would have sent Jesus running to his side.  Instead, Jesus deliberately sat for two full days.

 

Verse 4 gives us the rationale for Jesus’ delay.  God would get glory from the situation.  Unfortunately, that meant that Lazarus would have to wait.

 

Missing the funeral was not enough.  Jesus did not arrive until days after the burial.  Jesus waited until the situation became really serious.

 

Perhaps you feel like Lazarus.  You know that Jesus loves and cares for you, but there seems to be a delay.  Despite your faith, you anxiously wait for Jesus.

 

Jesus’ power and love are without limit.  No matter how long He takes, His timing is perfect.  Unfortunately, that means you may have to wait.

 

It does not get more serious than dead and buried.  The living Word undid death for Lazarus.  Jesus does not love you less than Lazarus.

 

His perfect timing is His perfect timing.  No matter what you want, or when, Jesus will get the glory when His power works in your life.  Keep your faith in love that knows no limits.

 

Think: The love of Jesus knows no limits.

 

Pray: “Lord, help me trust your love, power and timing in my life.”
