In this sermon outline we point out the need for waiting on the promises of God. Too many Christians today want 'Fast Food' answers. We are not willing to wait on the Lord God's timetable. It is not always what we want but His timetable is the best for us. It is not always what we want but His timetable is the best for us because What is faith and what does a life of faith look like?
Faith is something that is easy to talk about and easy to say that you have, but how is faith actually lived out? What will it look like when a person is living by faith? This morning we will take.

As a professor of Medieval Literature, Lewis was an expert in the fields of medieval warfare and chivalry. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:.
Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him. But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.

Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary
To run the marathon with endurance, I also had to mentally prepare for the hills. The hills of the Christian race are our trials In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
Jesus Christ is the real key to dealing with the weariness and discouragement. He is our Leader, setting the pace. Your legs feel like concrete, your breathing grows labored, your strides turn into a shuffle. Negative thoughts flood your mind, and the urge to quit becomes overwhelming. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow.
Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation. We also can talk to God in our times of severe trial.

He will hear and He cares deeply! Jesus Christ has been through such trials and understands! God is the One who can and will help us up when we fall.
He is also the One who will help us when we are weak and weary Have you not known? Have you not heard? His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
God is the One who will never forsake us Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. And God is the One who remembers our commitment and service But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner. For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
God does not forget our labor of love. He does not give up on us. God is ready and willing to help us when we hit the wall.

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.
There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
