God works for those who wait for Him!

In order to grow as believers, you and I must learn to wait on the Lord. While waiting God to answer prayers to happen in our lives, there are a few things that we must do. First, I continually bring our request before Him in prayer. We also must surrender to His timing, and live our life as the Bible instructs by seeking the Lords kingdom first. If we are truly trying to die to ourselves and live for Christ daily, I know that we are in the will of God. This makes the process of waiting easier. When we do this God will suddenly show up in great way in our lives when we keep trusting Him and waiting for His perfect timing to make things happen. When we keep our focus on loving the Lord with all of our heart, soul, and strength He will lead us. 

 

  “For since the world began no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him! ~ Isaiah 64:4

 

God has a plan for each one of us and wants us to know what it is. Every time we take a step of obedience, He sheds more light on our path. But sometimes He asks us to pause awhile, and we may not know why. We long for direction in a particular matter, but our prayers just aren’t being answered, and we wonder, Why does He delay?

When you aren’t seeing any answers, it doesn’t mean that God is not working. He’s still actively involved in your life, but He works in ways that are not always visible He orchestrates circumstances, changes people’s hearts, and protects His children from making hasty decisions that will have disastrous consequences. Perhaps the Lord knows you’re not yet ready for the next leg of your spiritual journey. Waiting times are opportunities for growth in character, obedience, and faith. He may also need time to train you for future responsibilities and ministries.

 

When you intentionally choose to be still, God unleashes His mighty power on your behalf. My prayer is that we would learn to wait on His answer—and do it joyfully. Why? God’s Word says that He acts on behalf of those who trust in Him. No, He doesn’t promise to give us everything we want. But when you and I watch for His provision, it will come—every time.

Have a wonderful day in His presence. Please share this blog with others and I pray it will encourage them.  God bless you!

Pay Day is coming!


Pay Day is coming! What we sow we will reap… it can be good or it can be bad. We love to blame someone or something else for our problems. No one else is in charge of your happiness except you! We always think someone else is supposed to make us happy, but that is not the right kind of thinking. God would like you to take this minute and think about this…. what are sowing? Are you criticizing? Are you gossiping? Are you sharing the love of God? Are you passing the tests? Are you forgiving others as God has forgiving you? Are you holding resentments that you need to let go of? Are you making your loved ones the brunt of your own problems? Are you uplifting your spouse? your children? your friends? Are you praying for others or just yourself? Are you complaining all the time? Are you speaking positive words or negative ones? Are you tithing? Are you asking God to help you to go out sow the right seeds or are you just doing what you want daily? Are you reading the Word of God for direction and wisdom? Start there and start praying!

You can radically change your life by the way you live your life, the way you think, the way to you talk, but it all starts by learning from God how to live, think and talk. God will help you and teach you and mold you into the person you were always designed to be. Retrain your brain! God is there to guide you and he is your hope and strength. Don’t give up for in due time you shall reap if we do not faint or quit! We may not come the way we think, but Pay Day is coming!
