Are you still waiting?

TODAY’S VERSE: Psalm 27:14
“Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.”
[New Living Translation (NLT) Holy Bible. New Living Translation copyright © 1996, 2004 by Tyndale Charitable Trust. Used by permission of Tyndale House Publishers.]

“Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.”
[Amplified Bible (AMP) Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman  Foundation]

For the past three-plus years, during which I’ve experienced some of the most challenging times in my life, I keep receiving the same message almost daily: “Wait on God.” Sometimes it has come with additional words of encouragement; sometimes it’s all I’ve received. Even when reaching the end of my rope in different areas during such length of time, the same message continues to stand. Even though nothing seems to shine on the horizon, the message is still the same: “Wait on God.”

Only when we truly believe that God exists and is the rewarder of those who diligently and earnestly seek Him (according to Hebrews 11:6) can we stand still and firm on our conviction that God’s faithfulness will prove our wait to be worth everything. Regardless of circumstances or waiting time, that, my friends, is the true nature of our Christian faith: believing a loving God who desires the very best for us and Who is simply asking us to be patient while He brings into reality everything we have hoped for according to His beautiful plan. Not always as encouraging as it reads, but since it is based on God’s Word I will continue to believe and wait.

Are you waiting on God?

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your everlasting love that keeps us running the good race despite what we see in the natural realm of things. Thank You for always being there to comfort and guide Your children even when human hope seems lost at times. Teach us to wait patiently on Your promises, for at the appointed time we will see the expected results if we do not faint. In Jesus’ Precious Name, amen.
