One of the hardest things for us to do is wait. It’s because, we have little patience.
Whatever it is we ask for in prayer, we expect it before we prayed for it. We expect God to give us what we asked for, whether we believe we are ready to receive it or not, and whether we believe it’s good for us.
Most of us, don’t take the time to see if what we ask for, lines up with what God wants for us. Nor do we want to be patient and wait for it, to see what God is showing us in our waiting. We want it, because we want it.
There are reasons for our waiting, for us to be patient. God is working things out behind the scenes to prepare us, or if it applies, the other person as well, for what it is we have prayed for. He may be removing something within us that doesn’t belong, or making us stronger, to receive what it is that we have requested. Therefore, we must wait on God.
There are blessings from God, beyond what we could ever imagine, when we wait for Him. Although we may be uncomfortable in our waiting, and we may want to quit, don’t give in, don’t give up. Wait on God.
I John 5:14-15 (KJV) – and this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Isaiah 64:4 (KJV) – for since the beginning of the world man have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
