PARDON ME!

In Psalm 32, David proclaims the blessedness of the one whose sins are forgiven. And he does this in a unique way. He uses three expressions for sin and then employs three expressions of God’s pardon for sin. Here’s what I mean: David called one category of sins transgressions, which indicates “rebellion against God”; another he simply called sin, which describes “knowingly missing the mark”; and the third category he called iniquity, which speaks of a “vile perversion.” Those terms cover the entire gamut of our sinfulness—major and minor. But then after showing us three categories of sin he uses three expressions to show how God pardons our sins:

GOD RAISES DEAD DREAMS

Scripture uses death to identify man’s greatest enemy and there’s nothing man fears more. When a person expires, losing all vital signs, doctors, medicine, and science stand powerless in its presence. Only God can resurrect. But this sermon doesn’t deal with the physical cessation of life, it deals with death of a different nature. The death of God’s divinely inspired promises and visions. I’m persuaded that many Christians are in the gestation stage of a specific promise God has given them. Perhaps years ago He planted a dream and you’re still awaiting its fruition. Maybe even hope has begged you to admit that promise is dead. But the God that resurrected Christ from the dead can resurrect your promise.

WHAT NEVER HAPPENED ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT

Let’s journey back several thousand years to Jerusalem during Passover week. This was the holiest of the seven Hebrew festivals that attracted thousands of worshipers. Some traveled hundreds of miles to attend this celebration in the religious capital of the world—Jerusalem. What a sight it must have been! For seven days the Priests appeared in their royal apparel, led the people in worship, offered sacrifices, and blew shofars (2 Chronicles 30:21). Everything was leading to the Day of Atonement when the High Priest would present the blood of a Passover lamb for the people’s sins. Not only was Jerusalem sightly its aroma was pungent.

A CHRISTMAS TRIP

Luke says as these shepherds watched their flocks during the night, the glory of God shined all around them. Now can you imagine that? It’s pitch black and then, suddenly, everything around them is illuminated! Then an angel appears and announces that the awaited Savior of the world has been born and is lying in swaddling clothes in a manger in Bethlehem. But it’s still not over. Besides this angelic messenger and the glory of God that is all around them, a vast, multitude of angels appears praising God, saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests” (2:13).

Blessings of Waiting on the Lord

Psalm 27:13—14

I want to start by sharing some good news about “waiting on God.” That’s because the process of waiting does not seem inviting and enjoyable. When God gives us the opportunity to wait on him, we can find ourselves being frustrated about it. But this is not what the Bible implies about waiting on the Lord. Lamentations 3:26 says: “it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”

That seems like an almost impossible request from the Bible. Waiting on God doesn’t seem easy or enjoyable! So how do we undertake this seemingly impossible venture to wait on the Lord? That’s what I want to talk about.

I want to begin by mentioning some ways we enjoy waiting:

1. Mothers, you have experienced the nine-month waiting process of gestation. And what did you do during that time? You prepared! You made a special room for the child. You bought bottles, outfits, and so forth. It was an enjoyable experience. (Abraham’s wife, Sarah, laughed when she heard the angel tell Abraham she would deliver a child.)

2. What about how we prepare for family and friends coming to visit us? Think about the waiting process: You cleaned your house; you planned the meals you would serve; you prepared a special guest room; and as the arrival day neared, your excitement grew. It was a thrilling experience!

3. Young people know the experience of anticipating graduation.

4. Do you recall the waiting process of purchasing your first car or house?

Now let’s apply this to how we anticipate a promise from God coming to pass. When the Bible says, “Wait on the Lord” do we get that same excitement? I sense that I speak for everyone, including me, that we must reluctantly confess no, we haven’t embraced that same excitement in waiting on God.

So, I want to share the “up” side to waiting on God. That’s because the Bible associates some blessings to it that we might have overlooked:

First, I want everyone here to repeat this phrase with me: “Wait on the Lord” (2xs). Now, let’s pause for a moment and I want everyone to contemplate the exact meaning of that phrase, wait on the Lord. (Pause) What do you hear the Holy Spirit saying in that sentence? (Answer) To “wait on the Lord” means, he plans on showing up! He is coming your way! His promise will be delivered! 

Imagine what it would be like if you never had the opportunity to wait for God: It would mean God would not be in your future! His goodness and grace would not await you in abundance.

The second blessing associated with “waiting on the Lord” is this: when the clock strikes “now” for you, God will arrive with his promise in-hand. Regardless of what God has promised you, the day will surely come when he makes good on that promise!

God must uphold his “word” to you! That’s because his integrity is at stake. Remember what Jesus said about himself in John 14:6. “I am the way and the truth and the life.” Jesus claimed that he is “truth.” And he, that cannot lie, will not let his “word” fail you! Now it makes sense why the Bible instructs Christians to “wait upon the Lord.” There’s blessing attached to the process:

Micah 7:7 says, “Blessed are all they that wait for him.”

And Isaiah 25:9 says, “we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation” (25:9).

Here’s what all this means to me personally: I always want to be waiting for God to do something. And this is in compliance with what Hosea 12:6 says: “wait for your God always.” So now let me illustrate why it’s good to wait on God.

In 1 Chronicles 14, the Philistines attacked David. David paused, prayed, and asked for God’s direction. The Lord told David to charge straight ahead and counterattack. When David obeyed, he won a great victory. But days later, the Philistines attacked again. Fortunately, David paused, and again inquired for God’s direction. This time the Lord put David “on hold” and instructed him to wait until he heard the sound of the Lord’s marching in the tops of the balsam trees. This was more than the wind rustling the tree leaves. This was likely the angelic army that God allowed David to hear as it marched toward the enemy atop the trees. And once again, God gave David a great victory!

Do you see the value of waiting on God? The Lord has us wait because he’s lining up his troops to give us assistance! He’s arranging things for our good.

The Psalmist gave a grave warning about the sin of impatience in Psalm 106:13, when he said, “But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his plan to unfold.”

Spiritual Activities while Waiting on God

While “waiting on the Lord” involves patience, it also involves energetic, spiritual activity. God never permits us to bring our Christian life to a screeching halt. There are numerous spiritual activities that waiting on God includes:

Praise God

Be thankful 

Pray 

Trust God and believe for his goodness

Remain faithful

Be patient, persevere, and don’t grow weary

Rest in Christ / Don’t Worry

Listen for the Spirit’s voice.

(Transition) So where can we find Scriptural examples of those that waited upon the Lord?

Biblical Examples of Waiting on God:

Abraham and Sarah impatiently waited for Isaac (Genesis 16:1–2).

Noah waited for the floodwaters to subside.

Saul refused to wait for Samuel to offer the sacrifice (1 Samuel 13).

David patiently waited about twenty-five years before ascending the throne. 

(Question) Why did God call David at a young age and then make him wait years before enthroning him? Why not call David one day and then enthrone him shortly thereafter? Further, why did David have to serve under the prideful and rebellious King Saul? And why did he have to move from place to place and flee for his life? God has a purpose for everything he does. In all this, David learned valuable lessons. He learned how to associate with lowly, burdened people; he learned how to depend on God and trust him in perilous times.

Jesus patiently waited before launching his public ministry.

Jesus waited four days before entering Bethany after hearing that Lazarus fell sick. And his purpose for waiting was to display the miracle-working power of his Heavenly Father.

All believers are commanded to await Christ’s Return.

The disciples patiently waited for the descent of the Holy Spirit after Christ’s ascension. And consider how the disciples waited on the Holy Spirit:

They prayed. Acts 1:14 says: “These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication.”

They studied the Scriptures (Acts 1:16–20)

They worked on church business (Acts 1:21–26). 

Blessings of Waiting on God

I want to allow the Scripture to speak for itself without any commentary about what waiting on God will do: 

Isaiah 40:29, 31 says: “Those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength” “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might he increases strength . . . They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 8:17 says: “this is our God; we have waited for Him, and he will save us.” 

Psalm 37:6 says: “He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.”

Psalm 27:14 promises that waiting on God strengthens our heart.

Psalm 37:34 promises that “He will exalt you to inherit the land.”

Isaiah 25:9 and Psalm 20:22 promise that seasons of waiting can allow God to save us.

Waiting on God is not punishment! It is his way of:

Developing us (In faith, trust, etc. Abraham and Sarah waiting for Isaac (Genesis 16:1-2))

Proving us (Samuel told Saul to wait seven days for him to offer the sacrifice. (1 Samuel 13))

Approving us (David waited twenty-five years before being king of Israel.)

Improving us

Maturing us

Teaching us

Fellowshipping and getting acquainting us with Him

Sovereignly working in our behalf (Isaiah 64:1-4)
