Good morning! Happy Friday to you all!
TFTD: Wait on the Lord!
Psalm 27:14 (NKJV)
14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Patience has never been my strong suit, but I am getting better. As a child, when someone told you to wait it felt like forever. As an adult, much hasn’t changed. Waiting is a process that still proves to be challenging especially if you have been waiting for a long time or waiting for a break through.
I want to encourage someone today to not only wait, but to wait on the Lord. Don’t just wait on people’s empty promises, but wait on the promises of God. While I’m in a season of waiting for new doors to be opened, I was reminded that even in my waiting periods, God has been answering other prayers and fulfilling promises. I got excited because I took a trip down memory lane and I began rejoicing over all of the things God has done in my life.
Waiting becomes difficult when you are trying to rely on people who have no power, but when you rely on the PROMISE KEEPER who has ALL POWER it becomes easier. I love writing on my vision list and piling on the things God has placed in my spirit and while I’m waiting on one thing on the list, He is fulfilling something else. God is just smooth like that. He gives you the things you desire when your will is lined up with His.
So, my advice to you is to seek God and find ways to expand your vision list. Then trust God to fulfill His promises to you and wait on Him. Sometimes I get a little impatient and it’s in those moments I have to regroup and pray. When I pray and trust God, He begins opening so many doors that I don’t grow antsy over the one or two things I think I really want. God knows what we need in this season. WAIT ON HIM!!!
I pray you have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Remember God will give you the strength you need while you are waiting! God bless!
