Do you find yourself in a waiting season? Are there things in your life that you believe will happen but have not come to pass yet?
What Are You Waiting For?
There are dreams we want to see come to pass, promises fulfilled, healing, finding a spouse, having babies, getting a new car, finding a great job, the list could go on.
There are many times in our lives that we will find ourselves waiting for something that we don’t yet see in our lives. During these times there is a beautiful invitation to either wait on God or wait with God.
The Lord has perfect timing. If we slip into impatience and wanting something to happen when we want it, we’re in danger of trying to give God a timeline and telling Him when He needs to give us this thing by. If that’s the case, we are missing out on so much with Him. We’re focusing on the gift and not the Giver.
If you are in a waiting season and having a hard time with it, here’s how we wait with the Lord well. And I’m taking it straight from scripture.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
7 Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Listed Out For Us
In Psalm 37:3-7, we see a step-by-step of how to wait with the Lord: trust in Lord (v3), take delight in the Lord (v4), commit your way to the Lord (v5), be still before Him and wait patiently (v6).
When we put all of our attention on attaining the promise, we miss out on the process. Lean into what the Lord is asking of us: trust, delight, commit, be still and patient.
I believe the Father is excited to see promises fulfilled and dreams come true, but I think He loves the process with us. When we lean into the process, He accelerates the promises in our lives.
If you’ve been frustrated and are ready to see something happen in your life, I want to encourage you to surrender that today. Surrender it to Jesus and ask Him what He wants to show you in the process.
