Waiting on God is the key to receiving what we ask for. We have to wait for God’s timing, not our timing. There’s a reason God wants us to wait on Him. God sees all things, and knows all things that we can’t see. We see with the naked eye, which isn’t very far. God knows all, and see beyond today. God knows our future. . . that’s why it is wise to wait on Him.
When we have not received what we ask for yet, it could be, we’re not ready for what we’ve ask for? We won’t know how to accept it, or it may become the god in our life. Look back on something you asked for, and you didn’t wait for God’s timing, did you wish you never asked for it?
We are to wait on God’s timing because He knows what’s best for us. Wait on God, and trust in Him, not yourself. See God through for whatever it is you’re asking for. Don’t step in and try to make it happen yourself, sooner or later, you will suffer the consequences of your actions.
