My Pastor has recently been teaching from the series “Can You Wait?” and let me tell you it has blessed my life tremendously!! I can honestly say that I will never view the process of waiting quite the same. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you about it in totality today, but I do want to share a tidbit of it with you and pray that it encourages your heart.
In the process of waiting it is SO easy for us to put up our petition, say from our mouth that we believe and trust in God but then our actions show something completely different. We say “God has it all in control” but in the back of our minds we already have plan B, C, D, E & F on stand by in the event that the Lord doesn’t respond within what we deem as the right time. Crazy right? The one point that Pastor got through this Sunday was as simple as this “Remember who you are waiting on.” Wow how profound. Like seriously, God doesn’t need our help! Take this passage as an example:
“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, measured heaven with a span and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?” ~Isaiah 40:12
The God that we serve is big, mighty, strong, and well able to reverse whatever it is that we think we can fix on our own! Once the petition goes up we need not do anything else but trust, believe and worship Him while we wait. Realign your focus during your waiting process. Stop looking at the issue, your own desires and/or motives, get out of your feelings and instead focus on Him and Him alone. Ask that He fills you even the more with His Holy Spirit, get busy doing His business, show Him how much He truly means to you, not just what He can do for you, and watch the blessings that will come your way! He is worthy of all the honor, glory, praise and worship that is due His name!
Peace & Blessings,
