Blessed are those who Wait on God!

Whether you are waiting for physical healing for yourself or for a loved one, for that perfect job opportunity, for your soul mate, for deliverance from a bad circumstance, for freedom from an addiction, a restored marriage, or for a child, it seems that waiting on God is one of the hardest things a Christian is called to do. In fact, we don’t like waiting in any shape or form, but the difference in waiting on God, and waiting on earthly things, is that this holy waiting is not a passive activity, but an active leap of faith. 

Blessed are those who Wait on God!

“So the Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help.” ~Isaiah 30:18

During our waiting period, God calls us to surrender our desires to Him, and to trust that He hears them. We are to trust Him with our whole heart, and pursue Him, even when He seems silent. And we can seek courage and strength by believing that although we do not understand His ways – they are right, and good, and hold a purpose that we may not be able to see right now.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to “let go, and let God”, especially when what we are letting go is so embedded in our hearts and souls. Yet, through our consistent and heartfelt prayers, even at the risk of sounding like a broken record, we will experience a strengthened faith as we savor God’s promises until the answers come.

Today choose to believe, and know that no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11), and God will make everything  beautiful in His time (Ecclesiastes 3:11) . And even though it’s hard, we have to trust that His answer will be nothing less than His very best… right on time. And hope that you feel encouraged to do the same whatever you’re waiting for.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

    Reblogged this on Prayer: Communication with God and commented:
    Even great men and women in Scripture had to wait on God. Look at Abraham and Sarah, it was a year AFTER they received the promise of Isaac before Isaac actually came to them. We also see what impatience does through them, they took matters into their own hands and decided to “help” God along. That’s how Ishmael came into the picture. God doesn’t need our help, He desires our TRUST. Fully put your faith in God and wait on all that He has to offer you! Blessings,

    Father, you know how impatient we can be. You created us. You walked among us. We choose to TRUST you now with our lives. I ask you to bring healing to those who need it, pour your financial blessings to those who need it, but more than physical blessings, Lord, heal our hearts and souls of their pain. Allow us to feel your presence. Dwell with us in the Sukkah of our hearts. In Jesus name. Amen.
