Waiting Patiently on God – Beloved Women – January 22, 2019
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him. – Psalm 37:7 ESV
Sometimes in life, we want God to move and act now. But we know that God says “yes,” “no,” and sometimes “wait.” It is during this time He is pruning us and getting us ready for the answer that He will give to us. This time of waiting is sometimes hard, but we must press in and seek Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and spirit and not grow weary. In these times we can be down in the valley and at our lowest point; but if we can just pause and focus on Jesus, He will help us to endure the wait.
God’s timing is always perfect and until you have a clear Word from God be still, stay where you are, and press in. He will answer. He promises if you seek Me you will find Me. We must trust Him and know that His plan and timing is always the very best for our life. Wait with great expectation and know that our Father in Heaven will answer.
Lord, help us to wait upon You. Your timing is always perfect. May our trust be in You and not in our own time and planning. May we wait with great expectation. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.
Are you willing to be still and wait on God’s perfect timing?
