All is part of a divine order and will be done in its own right and proper time. Of course, when we are hoping, praying and waiting for something, it’s easy to forget this. After all, waiting is “remaining inactive in one place while expecting something.” And being inactive means feeling powerless and at the mercy of the world – nobody likes that feeling. But we must keep in mind God’s greater plan and his perfect timing: “We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 “Trust in Him at all times, O people.” Psalm 62:8
What are YOU Waiting For? What are you waiting for in your life? A new job, financial security, healing, partners? It seems that no matter where we are in our lives, we are waiting for something in the future. Our lives are never stagnant; if we are moving forward, there is always something to expect or wait for around the next bend in the road of our lives. There are many stories of “waiting” in the Bible. In some stories, the waiting seemed to last forever, while others only waited a few intense moments. The key to waiting is not the length of time but how we handle the wait. The Bible teaches us that we should “wait on the Lord.” We must look with confidence and expectation toward the future, trusting that God will fulfill our waiting in good and proper time.
There are three actions that will help you wait on the Lord patiently and with faith, knowing and believing that He will help: 1. Trust – If we doubt God’s willingness to hear and answer our prayer, we may begin to feel bitter when we think God has heard our prayer but is silent. Scripture teaches us that God is unchangeable, which means He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and we can always rely on Him to provide the best possible path for our lives! God said that He will never leave us or forsake us. If He seems silent now, it is because He has another plan, different timing or a way to answer our prayer that has not been revealed to us yet. We must trust in His plan. 2. Resist – We must resist the temptation to take matters into our own hands. Patience is powerful. Having patience is essential in many circumstances and the Holy Spirit is here to fill us with this patience when we feel we cannot wait another minute on God. The safest place we can rest is in God’s Will. When we rest here, resisting temptation is easy. 3. Pray – How many times have you given a prayer request to God and felt He was deaf? During these times, you need to keep on praying, but pray the right way.
God always answers our prayers, but it may not be the way we want Him or expect Him to. It may be a yes, a no or something better. When we don’t immediately get the answer we want, we have a tendency to repeat the same prayer over and over until we either lose our voice or simply give up. After we have given our need to the Lord, we must turn our request into a “Thank you,” and an attitude of expectancy, and say, “Not my will, but Yours, Lord.” When we thank the Lord in advance for answering our prayers, it is an active display of our faith that demonstrates to God our confident expectation that His awesome power will provide for us.
We affirm God’s Perfect Timing . Trusting in God, to see His will and perfect order unfold in our lives. W – Know God’s will for you. (That will is always for your best.) A – Anticipate for God’s will. (Hope for that will to happen.) I – Intercede. (Unceasingly pray for it.) T – Trust in Him completely. (Just believe in His promises.) /br>
