Anybody reading this today waiting on something? I’m sure for most of us the answer is yes. Waiting on the phone to ring, waiting on an answer that seems to be taking way to long, waiting on that new…._______, waiting for your stimulus, waiting on the vaccine, waiting in line at Walmart (OK maybe that one doesn’t qualify). We are all at some point in time in the “waiting room” of life. Not easy, never in our time or in our direction but many times waiting on God to respond.
So, what to do while we wait? What is God accomplishing during this “stand by.”
Here are a few thoughts that have come via a friends devotion this morning……..
“The pressures of a delayed answer are meant to purify our faith and enlarge our soul.”
“Delayed answers increase the magnitude of the “yes” when it comes.”
“To see and act on the needs of others in our hour of waiting is a great act of trust, surrender and worship.”
“Waiting on God increases the intensity of our need for Him.”
“Waiting on God produces deep surrender and patience.”
In all of this “waiting” God is at work! (Important to remember….daily)
In all of God’s “working” His goal in our lives is the finished product…..maturity.
In all of our “waiting” we want the fast answer….God wants the best answer.
So our challenge during the waiting is to be surrendered, confident and productive.
While we wait find the one thing that God wants you to do TODAY.
PS: Waiting is never easy and don’t beat yourself up if during the process you falter and grow impatient. God has promised to finish what He has started.
Praying for you today
