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.
