When God says wait

DevotionsWhen God says wait

Text: Psalm 46: 10. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 


The waiting time is the most difficult time in the life of a man.
But out God is principled and He works according to His own timeline, not our own timeline.
When God tells us to wait, it’s simply because He sees our end before our beginning.
So many times, we run out of patience as wait on the Lord for His mighty intervention.
You see believers making a negative confession about their life and the current situation in their waiting time.
When the Israelites approached the red sea, they murmured against Moses and wished they had died in Egypt, that’s how we often behave and talk during our waiting time.
But all God needed was their trust, “to be still amidst that challenge, brace yourself amidst that difficulty, and you will see His mighty hand of salvation. (Exodus 14:10-15).


Sometimes in our waiting time also, it seems as if God is silent. But the truth is that even in His silence, are multitudes of words.
The silence of God in your waiting time could mean that He is fighting for you and you just have to be still.
God might also want to build your faith in that time.
His silence could also point His good works for you and demand praise and songs of thanksgiving to Him.

Has God spoken concerning a situation in your life?
Has the Lord promised to do something great for you?
Indeed He will do them all, for His ways are not the ways of man neither His thoughts, Bus words will never return void to Him and again remember that God is not a man that lies nor repent. (Numbers 24:29, Isaiah 55:8-11).
David in psalms told us the beautiful benefit of waiting on the Lord;
1. As he waited patiently seeking God’s redemption, God heard his cry. Meaning our waiting is never in vain. Psalm 40:1.
2. As he waited after the Lord had turned His glorious face at him, the deliverance came, God brought him out of a horrible pit, out of the city clay and set his feet upon a rock and established his goings. Again this tells us how God met the exact need why David waited on Him. Psalms 40:2.
3. And God changed his previous song of sorrow and pain to glorious songs of praise and thanksgiving. Psalm 40:3.

It is better to wait longer than to walk wrong.
The waiting time is a refreshing time.
Don’t try to figure things out your own way, wait patiently for the Lord that never change.
As we wait on Him, He has promised to renew our strength, He has promised that our waiting years will not be wasted, “He said we shall mount up wings as eagles, run and never get weary, walk and never faint”. Now we understand that our waiting is never in vain, like eagles you will fly above your peers. When others run and are weary, you will never be wearied nor faint. Isaiah 40:31.


Psalm 27: 14. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: WAIT, I say, on the LORD.
