Day 8: Waiting In The Wait


I WAIT

because if I force anything

to happen before it is supposed to happen

it isn't

GOD'S TIMING

that is way better than mine.

But WAITING seems to be so unproductive

as if you are avoiding doing what you think

you should be doing,

but WAITING is actually productive

when you are WAITING on GOD~

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD" (Psalm 27:14).

BUT GOD,

IT is taking too long~

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD"*

BUT GOD,

If I do this or say that then IT will all work out~

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD"*

BUT GOD,

let me help YOU~

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD"*

The message gets loud and clear

WAIT EXPECTANTLY FOR THE LORD.

For when we

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD" *(Psalm 27:14)

Something happens

that could have never happened

if you never WAITED

because it is in the

WAITING EXPECTANTLY FOR THE LORD

when

GOD takes you deeper into a relationship with HIM

through all your asking

through all your seeking

through all your wanting to fix something that only HE can fix

because

WAITING ON GOD

is not standing still.

And then before you know it

GOD let's you know when it is

TIME

for you

to do what HE calls you do

or to say what HE calls you to say

or something happens so supernaturally

that you know

that is GOD's DOING

because HE wanted you to WAIT

so HE could do what HE does best.

HE just wants us to move over for

a second, or a day, or a month, or a. ________,

no matter how long it takes

because

WAITING is the sweet spot

where you meet GOD

where you experience GOD

where you are changed.

WAITING is how we

RUN THE RACE of LIFE.

“Many of HIS promises bear a long date;

but they are sure and infallible. Wait, therefore" (Trapp).

So what are you WAITING for?

Why don't we instead

"WAIT FOR GOD'S PERFECT TIMING" (watch the video below)
