Wait on God

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalms 27:14 NIV

When we become impatient and react without thinking, we can do damage to ourselves and others. Sometimes when we pray and God doesn’t respond quickly enough, we decide to take matters into our own hands and things get worse as a result. When God tells you to wait, He is saying, “Trust me with the timing, the ways and means, and you will get a better result.”

David wrote: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!” (vv. 13-14 NKJV).

Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out?

It can be tough to wait on the Lord. It’s much easier in the heat of the moment to lose your calm. Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out? Do you think this situation will be different? Not a chance! What do you want? Temporary relief or a permanent solution? Haste makes waste!

When you act in haste, you do things you can end up regretting and having to apologize for. Or worse, justifying! Impulsiveness got King Saul into serious trouble. Instead of waiting for the prophet Samuel to arrive and the priests to offer a peace offering to God ensuring their victory over the Philistines, Saul grew impatient, usurped the role of a priest, and offered the sacrifice himself. When Samuel asked him why, he replied, “I felt compelled” (1Sa 13:12 NKJV). And the result? “Samuel said to Saul, ‘You have done foolishly…now your kingdom shall not continue’” (vv. 13-14 NKJV). So, wait on God.

What really are you doing with opportunities presenting themselves to you

When Jesus told the people that Lazarus was not dead but asleep, all He wanted to hear was for someone amongst them to say, “I WILL GO AND WAKE HIM UP.” That’s all. Jesus was waiting for someone who can be bold enough to say,“You don’t need to come all the way to Judea Lord, […]
