THE POWER OF WAITING! – Mark 15:3 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Mark 15:3 – Devotional

Mark 15:3

“The chief priests accused Him of many things: but He answered nothing.

During the height of the “Cold War,” David Benson was standing in the center of Red Square with hundreds of Russian Bibles buried in his luggage and sewn into his garments. He was to deliver the Bibles to a Russian believer, but the authorities had unexpectedly relocated that man and David had no idea where he was or how to contact him.

It was at that terrifying place in his life that David Benson took his hands off the situation and did nothing in his own strength. As he waited, totally dependent on the Lord, he was miraculously united with his contact in another part of Moscow in which he had never been. What David Benson was incapable of doing himself, God did for him. He simply experienced the power of waiting.

Throughout His ministry here on earth our Savior did much and said much, but there were times when He did nothing and said nothing. In so doing, He accomplished His purpose.

Sometimes it seems as if we are compelled to say or do something when all the Lord wants us to do is to simply do nothing more than simply wait and watch for Him to accomplish His work.

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!
