There’s just something about starting your day with God. I was reading New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp, and today was all about persevering. There’s something to be said for waiting on God.
We live in a fast-paced world. Have you noticed? Long gone are the days when you had to wait for any amount of time for anything. I get that technology can be a wonderful thing. I like the modern-day conveniences we get to enjoy. I’m human. I want what I want and I want it when I want it. But waiting on God is a gift that comes with many different benefits, that often times, if I’m completely honest, I don’t pay much attention to.
The thing about waiting on God is that it’s best not to do it in your own strength, because when you approach it like that, it becomes about you. Waiting on God and being open to what He wants to do in you, in your situation and whatever or whoever He wants to effect in the process, is divine. Some people look at waiting as being in limbo. It’s not. If it is limbo, it’s limbo with a purpose.
Some people are afraid to sit in the moment, with all that it brings…the emotions, the pain, the confusion. Raise your hand if you’d rather skip over those things! But all the feels are temporary. They never last. Just read my post Feelings Are Nothing More Than Feelings. It is during those times that waiting on God is the most beneficial thing to do. For you. For those in your life.
Isaiah 40:31 says; They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk; and not faint.
Oh that we would learn to wait on God.
While you are waiting on God, how can I help you to do the next right thing for you? For your life? It’s your life, so it’s your decision, no matter how many people want to tell you what to do, even if you didn’t ask. I would be honored to support you in finding your own unique next steps and praying with you while you wait.
