Psalm 27:14-Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
Waiting on God?
Is this where you find yourself on today? Have you been praying and desiring of God to work out something on your behalf and it seems like you have been praying and waiting and still waiting on God?
Well, I guess to some degree we all can say that we have been there before or are either there right now in one way or another.
As much as we hate to "wait" on God, He commands in His Word that we do just that, "WAIT."
Waiting is indeed hard, but it is also necessary. Not for God to get ready what He is going to do on our behalf, but waiting helps us prepare for what God has for us.
WAIT, WAIT WAIT! It's the uncomfortable part of life that we all hate, but is of necessity in life.
Throughout scripture we see how God's people had to wait. Sarah and Abraham waited for Isaac, Hannah waited for Samuel, Jonah waited 3 days in the belly of a fish, Daniel waited in the lion's den, 3 Hebrew boys waited in a fiery furnace, David waited 17 years to become King over God's people, Jesus waited 42 generations before coming in the flesh to die for the sins of humanity to reconcile us back to God.
Are you waiting on God? Are you tired of waiting and want Him to answer now? If we could be truthful, I believe the answer would be "YES" for all of us.
WAIT! it is God's requirement.
I know without a doubt that waiting on God at times can be scary and even confusing, but that is where our faith has to kick in. That is where we have to believe beyond what we see with our natural eyes.
In your wait, remember that what God has for us is for us, but, we have to wait on Him to receive it. Impatience will not work. It only makes the wait time seems longer. Can I get an amen? LOL!
Faith in God is a lifetime process in which we begin to wear our "faith eyeglasses and hats" unto death, for without them, we will get lost, confused and loose our way, even in the wait.
James 5:7-8 - Therefore be patient, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Notice how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and is patient with it until he receives the early and late rain. 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is drawing near.
Isaiah 40:31-but those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.
Remember, "WAIT" is the road from the promise to the praise! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY.
