There is nothing more difficult than waiting. Especially, when you think you want something and you can’t see why you can’t have it. But I continue to learn that it’s best to wait on God. He makes everything beautiful when you wait for his perfect timing.
Sometimes the wait is to allow the truth of a situation to emerge. Moving too soon will keep us blinded and we won’t have an clear picture of what or whom we are dealing with.
This week, I learned why God has me waiting in one particular situation. No matter how old you get or who thinks your life is being wasted, WAIT ON GOD. God knows more than we know.
God knows why you don’t need a house now. God know the delay in having a child. God know why you don’t need to be in a relationship with that person now or ever. God knows. Pushing past his delay’s or no’s is too costly, and they end up being time wasters.
People try to make me feel bad about my age, my stage of life., what they think I have not accomplished, but guess what? I would rather be right where I am with the gifts of God flowing in my life, than to have multi-millions of dollars (oh, and I’m going to have that too). But when I do get that, I will be ready. I won’t go off and forget about God and become selfish and full of myself. I won’t become a shopaholic. When God allows my wealth to come, I’ll be ready for it.
Listen, you may have wanted to connect with someone in a relationship, but God has prevented it. You’d better thank God! He knows what is best! Thank him. That is what I now understand better than ever! GOD KNOWS.
Pushing past the stop signs can destroy you. I don’t care. I’m going to wait on God!
New International Version (NIV)
14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
