Waiting On God
Waiting on God
Wait: delay: time during which some action is awaited;
Nowadays, were living in a fast moving world where everything has to be done quickly. We want everything the quick and possibly the easy way e.g. fast food, speed dating whatever, as long as it quick, possibly to satisfy our short term desires. But what about the long term? What about the saying good things come to those who wait?
The bible talks a lot about patience and endurance and waiting on God. These qualities are important in progressing in our Christian walk.
Wait for the LORD and keep his way.
When we put God aside and put our desires first we fall. Brothers and Sisters some of us forget this very important verse.
33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)
I believe the significant word is first. We should ask ourselves: are we putting God first before we ask Him for something or our we just focusing on our desires?
Then we wonder why, we do not receive what we ask for.
Some things take time to manifest, you can't rush perfection it takes time and the result is over whelming especially when God is in the picture. He is way too good!
One thing I love about our Father is that He surpasses expectations because He loves us. Let's say you're asking for one blessing, God is so good! So good that He will give us way more at His time.
Take a look: John 2
When Jesus was at the wedding, Jesus' mother said to Jesus there was no more wine.
"My time has not yet come."
This is us. We ask for something and we do not receive it because it's not our time. Jesus was waiting for the right time, the perfect time.
Then what happened? After Jesus asked the servants to fill the jar with water and it turned to wine, the master of the banquet said:
"Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
What did Jesus do? He served the best (not average) at His perfect time. Jesus don't do average He does great!
The amount of people that complain that God doesn't answer prayer requests or say 'God took to long' or 'prayer doesn't work' it's basically because their not patient enough. What are we expecting speed service? Let God reveal and answer us at His time.
Whenever God answers you: probably in 1 minute, next year or even 10 years, the Lord is faithful some of the people in the bible waited a long long time to get their miracle.
Some of us are not even patient, but we should mediate on bible scriptures concerning waiting and trusting in the Lord. We need to be disciplined in doing so.
So if you're waiting for something:
If it's according to Gods will, it will happen. We need to trust in our Father and have faith in our Father.
So if your waiting for a healing, for a prayer answer, a marriage, a house, a job, keep the faith and just wait on Him because Our God is faithful and I pray God gives you the desires of your heart according to His will at the right time.
Much Love in Christ
