Waiting on the Lord

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Born in Cuba in 1914, Jorge Bolet demonstrated remarkable musical talent as a pianist, winning several international awards. After moving to the United States, he continued to perform in concerts throughout the world. Yet he failed to galvanize the public and largely was ignored by music critics.

However, all of that changed on this date 30 years ago, when Bolet gave a concert in Carnegie Hall in New York City. As a result of this one concert, it seemed that the musical establishment suddenly realized the full breadth of his talent. He dazzled the critics and instantly became a musical superstar—all when he was 60 years old!

Bolet had to wait for years before this breakthrough came. But, when the time came, he was ready for the opportunity.

Waiting is often one of the hardest things we have to do. If we do not see immediate results, it’s easy to give up, assuming we will never receive answers. It can seem that our needs will never be met and our burdens will never be lifted.

But the Bible teaches us to expectantly “wait on the Lord.” We are not to be afraid or worried. Rather, we are to “be of good courage.” As we look to God and wait for Him, the Bible promises that He will strengthen our hearts and revive our spirits.

Today, it may seem that God is not hearing your prayers, or that your problems never will be solved. But don’t give up or be discouraged. Rather, be bold and courageous. Have faith.

Continue to commit your needs to Him. Trust Him, and keep seeking Him. Believe that His promises are true and that your prayers will be answered. As you wait on Him, He will strengthen you, provide for your needs, and grant you victory.
