In the Waiting

We all have things that we have been praying about, things we really desire to see change, but are we willing to wait up on the Father, who will bring it all into existence in His perfect timing?

For many weeks you have waited, for months you have prayed, you have wept tears, and you have struggled. You begin to wonder if something is wrong, does God not hear, does He not care? Will this prayer never be answered, will that dream never be a reality?

And during this time of waiting, you see your friends receive something you have been praying about for so long and once again you wonder, will God never answer? You want to rejoice with them, yet it hurts so much as you continue to wait.

My friend, let’s be honest, Waiting is

•Difficult

•Painful

•Stretching

and looking at it from an earthly perspective, it would appear that the Waiting season seems to only cause more heartache, more doubt and tears in our lives, but really is that just because we aren’t getting what we want?

I invite you to join me, as we look at the Waiting season from a Spiritual standpoint. The Waiting period allows us to:

•Draw closer to God

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. James 4:8

•Surrender our will to the Father

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord . For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8‭-‬9

•Trust God More Fully

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6

•Be Refined and made more into the Image of Christ

So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:7

So my friend, wherever you find yourself at this very moment, in the Waiting or maybe in the Valley. I encourage you with these words:

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

I pray that God would give you much Grace as you seek Him and from Him alone, comes perfect Peace and Rest. Surrender it to Him🙌

Thankful for Grace

Vinny
