Passage: Proverbs 20:22

He Shall Save Thee

…wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee

(PROVERBS 20:22)

Just before our LORD went to the cross to accomplish our salvation; just before HE went to the cross to give HIS life a ransom for many, HIS beloved people, HE said “I pray for them.” I want to know that when HE prayed ‘for them’ that HE prayed for me, don’t you? The apostle wrote “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”

Friend, there is nothing more important than to know if indeed you have the SON. There is no subject of more importance than to know if you are savingly joined to the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Many religious pretenders say that they know the LORD, but my friend, the question I want to press is this, does the LORD JESUS CHRIST know you? Does HE in fact know me? If HE does, be sure of this, HE prayed for you and me and ‘shall save’ us.

In so many blessed places the Word of GOD comforts believing sinners, in setting forth our blessed LORD and SAVIOUR as the GOD who ‘shall save’ HIS people. The proverb of GOD very blessedly declares “Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and HE SHALL SAVE THEE.”

Friend, don’t try to fix it! Don’t try to get things right before GOD before you come to CHRIST—you never will. There is only one who can recompense for all the evil you are! Wait on the LORD, and HE shall save thee.

Are you surprised at my speech evil man? Do you consider yourself otherwise? The LORD JESUS CHRIST came into the world to save ungodly, evil, sinners. Friend, if GOD has not taught you as yet, that you are evil — I fear that you are, even now, without CHRIST.

The LORD himself declares to sinful man “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?” (LUKE 11:13) Do you remember what our LORD explained to HIS step brothers? HE said to them “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” (JOHN 7:7)

This unbelieving world hates the LORD’s testimony, but oh how I love HIM for it! If HE had not shown me that I am evil, I would never have come to HIM to recompense for all of it, and wait on HIM to save me.

Beloved, the LORD JESUS CHRIST is the one that does not fall short of the glory of GOD. HE is the one who gives HIS own glory to those who have given up pretending to have their own. Our LORD declared to our HEAVENLY FATHER “…the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one.”

Friend, believe on the LORD, wait on the LORD JESUS CHRIST and HE SHALL SAVE THEE. AMEN! (ACTS 18:8, PROVERBS 20:22)
