To wait on God means directing your attention to Him in hopeful, knowing anticipation of what He will do. It means trusting Him with ever part of your being instead of trying to figure out things on your own. God has designed you to wait on Him…all day…every day. He has designed you to stay conscious of Him as you go about your daily duties. Satan, the world system, and our flesh are always trying to distract us, provide interference so our spiritual radar has trouble tuning in to His communication to us.
Today, be patient when something different or stressful occurs, or it isn’t clear what you should do. Remember, God speaks to us through our circumstances, so wait on Him, read what He is saying to you based on who He is, then respond….rather than just reacting based on your limited skills, insight, and ability to read the future. His holy Word tells us that He will make known to you the path of life. Look for the light He will shine on your Stepping Stones.
Dear Father God,
I confess that one of my many short comings is my lack of patience. I read in Your Word that you promise many blessings to those who wait on You…for those whose hope is in You. I pray for Your help in increasing my patience and to let You shine Your light on my pathway of life You’ve designed for me. I know that waiting on You enables me to glorify You by living in deep dependence on You. It will also help me to enjoy You. It is only in Your presence that I will find the fullness of joy. I pray this in the name of my savior, hope, and joy, Jesus Christ – AMEN!
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
