Most people do not like to wait because it’s hard. But in God’s track record in the Scripture, waiting is a blessing because it means God is preparing you for more incredible things He is about to unfold in your life.
God’s Yes And No
My relationship with God has been quite an adventure throughout the years. I learned to embrace all His “Yeses” and even “Nos” in my life. Those “Nos” especially left a mark in my personal history with God. That’s why even when sometimes things don’t go the way I planned them, I’m okay with it now, though it hurt for a while. My prayer has always been, “Lord, not my will but let Your will be done even if it will hurt. For You are ahead of me and You know best.”
I got so used to God’s moving in all His “Yeses” and “Nos” to me that when He told me to “Wait” for the first time, I was astounded. Then I realized how impatient I am and how I never wanted to wait. That Word from the Lord revealed what was in my heart. If there was one thing I didn’t want to hear from God, it’s “wait.”
God Says, Wait
When David was anointed king, he spent a great deal of his time waiting before he truly became king. He waited over 20 years before God’s word in his life was fulfilled. And his journey was not easy. But the waiting prepared David’s character to be the king God wanted him to be for Israel. And indeed, David became the greatest king of Israel.
Then I realized that when God is making you wait, He is preparing you for greater than what you had expected or imagined. That’s why, relentless woman, you can see this waiting season as a blessing. You’ll never know when God’s perfect time will come, but you can be confident in this—God loves you so, and He is with you right at this moment.
And if you are faithfully waiting, expect a greater blessing coming!
