Waiting on the Lord

My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require
Ps 27:8

"But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power "

Isa 40:31 

Waiting upon the Lord


The American Heritage Dictionary provides the following explanations for the word retreat:

  • A quiet, private and safe place

  • A refuge

  • The act of withdrawal

  • A time of seclusion or silence.


A retreat therefore offers people the opportunity to get away from the demands of ordinary life by going to a quiet place where they can meet God. It offers the quietness, solitude and peacefulness in which we can get closer to the only living Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Jesus says in Mark 6:31 "As for you come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while, for many were coming and going and they had not even leisure enough to eat."

Although there are many reasons why people visit retreats, the mutual factor is always sincere love for God and the need to love, serve and learn more about God on a deeper level.

Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!
