Waiting for God

Waiting for God can be one of the most difficult things a person ever has to do in their life. To wait on God takes courage but it also brings us blessings as well. When we are asked by God to wait for Him, we should be very careful to follow His instructions in doing so. We do not want to miss His timing.

Waiting brings strength from God. Some Christians lack the strength they need to be a blessing to others. They unsuccessfully depend on self effort. We need God’s help to wait on Him. Waiting for God is impossible without His help. We must rely on God in order to wait for Him.

Psalm 27:14 NKJV
Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

However, to wait for God does not mean to do nothing. God wants to use our time, talents, and treasures while we wait for Him, trusting him for needed strength.

Key Verse
Psalm 33:20 NKJV
Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.
