This very day I write this, the Holy Spirit of God has spoken strongly to my heart that He wants me to WAIT regarding a very significant matter in my life and ministry.
In the past, when I had a sense God wanted me to wait, I only waited if I wanted to wait. If I did not feel like waiting, I pridefully, foolishly, and sinfully moved forward anyway. Or I waited but did so with a really bad attitude, a lot of impatience, and whining, fretting, worrying, etc.
I have since learned three very important things about when God tells us to wait, and I am learning day by day to wait when God tells me to wait – with the right heart.
- Jesus Christ is Lord, and we are to love and obey the Lord and wait when He tells us to wait regardless of what we think or how we feel or what waiting may entail.
- The Lord ALWAYS knows best and has His reasons when He tells us to wait.
- In our time of waiting, we should be fully yielded to God and His will for us and be open to however He leads us in that season of waiting.
Is God telling you to WAIT concerning something or someone? If the answer is yes, then WAIT!
“My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.” Psalms 62:5 NKJV
