Waiting

lightstock_304206_download_medium_angela_Some­times life just gives us pause. That moment or phase in time where you may want to do or say some­thing, any­thing, but find that you have a check in your spir­it that screams at you to just wait. But what am I wait­ing for?

The­se are times when the human part of you may want to lash back at some­one or get even. You may want to move that moun­tain in your life in your own strength. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when we are called to be war­riors, but we must be very care­ful that we are fol­low­ing the lead­ing of the Holy Spir­it. Our flesh can lead us astray very eas­i­ly.  I have no inter­est in mov­ing a moun­tain on my own!

There are times when a full frontal assault is the direc­tive, but not always. What about the times when God tells you to do noth­ing? To wait!

I love the sto­ry in the Bible of King David. What an amaz­ing man of God. He loved God with all his heart. In fact, God Him­self said that David was a man after God’s own heart. But he didn’t have a life of ease. He spent a lot of time wait­ing for the ful­fill­ment of what was proph­e­sied over him.  In most every­thing he faced, he sought God’s advice and direc­tion. On the occa­sions when he didn’t, it cost him dear­ly, as well as many oth­er peo­ple.

This can apply to many areas of our lives. The main lesson we can learn from David’s exam­ple is to take our cares to God and wait. Wait until He tells you what to do.

Wait­ing can be excru­ci­at­ing.

Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.”

Wait­ing at the feet of Jesus to direct us. Wait­ing at the feet of Jesus to change some­thing. Wait­ing at the feet of Jesus to fix some­thing. Wait­ing at the feet of Jesus to do a mir­a­cle. What­ev­er you are wait­ing for, be at Peace.

Psalm 46:10a says, “Be still and know that I am God!”

He is God. You can trust Him. You can trust that when He is ready to move that moun­tain, He will. In the mean­time, rest and be at peace.
