Waiting on God

Waiting on God

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

How hard it can be to wait on God! As we wait, it can seem that nothing is happening and that He never will answer us. But the Bible speaks about a “proportion” of our hope. This proportion relates to the time we have spent getting to know and trust Him.

When we trust Him and know Him intimately, we are not worried about delays or temporary problems. We know that He is with us, loves us, and watches over us. And we have the patience to wait on Him. Waiting demonstrates that we trust Him.

Those who do not have an intimate relationship with God can tend to be preoccupied and worried, filled with turmoil, anxiety, uncertainty, and doubt.

But the Bible says that if we wait on the Lord, we will find our strength is renewed. “They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

God wants to have an intimate relationship with us. He wants us to have complete confidence in Him. We are not to panic but are to trust in Him. We are to remember that He loves and cares for us.

Spend time with God. Read His Word. Listen to His voice, and wait on Him. Praise and worship Him. Trust Him to renew your strength and give you His peace. Let Him deliver you from fear and worry.
