Saturday! It has been a very long day!!
The sun is setting in the west and I can almost say that day is done. I landed upon the perfect Psalm a while ago. Psa. 92:12-15.
“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13) Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14) They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing, 15) To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”
Oh! What else could I ask for. More than that, what else do I need but the One who knows all about me and loves me in ways that are even unknown to me.
I clicked upon Charles Spurgeon a bit earlier and it seemed that God gave that message on my laptop simply to reinforce what He is and does for me. I want you to have it to bless your heart too.

Faith’s Check Book, Daily Entry
C. H. Spurgeon
Waiting, Not Running
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. (Psalm 62:1)
Blessed posture! Waiting truly and only upon the Lord. Be this our condition all this day and every day. Waiting His leisure, waiting in His service, waiting in joyful expectation, waiting in prayer, and content. When the very soul thus waits, it is in the best and truest condition of a creature before his Creator, a servant before his Master, a child before his Father. We allow no dictation to God, nor complaining of Him; we will permit no petulance and no distrust. At the same time, we practice no running before the cloud and no seeking to others for aid: neither of these would be waiting upon God. God, and God alone, is the expectation of our hearts.
Blessed assurance! From Him salvation is coming; it is on the road. It will come from Him and from no one else. He shall have all the glory of it, for He alone can and will perform it. And He will perform it most surely in His own time and manner. He will save from doubt, and suffering, and slander, and distress. Though we see no sign of it as yet, we are satisfied to bide the Lord’s will, for we have no suspicion of His love and faithfulness. He will make sure work of it before long, and we will praise Him at once for the coming mercy.
What else do I need to say! What do I need to want! What do I lack! Absolutely NOTHING!!
May Jesus Christ be praised in my life! And yours too!!
In His Hands….
