Morning Motivation/Devotional “Wait on the Lord”

I will be the first to admit that it is not always easy to wait on the Lord.  If we love God and trust Him, then wait we must.  We wait because we “know the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future” Jeremiah 29:11.

For many of us going through a separation and divorce, our path has been drastically changed. All of our plans and dreams have been shifted.  We may not know which way to go and that is when we need to trust and wait on the Lord and his timing because His timing is best.

Timing is so important! If you are going to be successful in dance, you must be able to respond to rhythm and timing. It’s the same in the Spirit. People who don’t understand God’s timing can become spiritually spastic, trying to make the right things happen at the wrong time. They don’t get His rhythm – and everyone can tell they are out of step. They birth things prematurely, threatening the very lives of their God-given dreams. – T. D. Jakes

I don’t believe that waiting means just sitting still.  It means to be active in out waiting.  We need to go through each door God opens. We need to strive to know God’s will in our lives and work toward growing our faith.  I too believe he wants us to enjoy our life and serve others while we wait on Him to fulfill His will in our lives.  In other words, we need to live our lives for Him daily while we wait.

“If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait, let us do so with our whole hearts; for blessed are all they that wait for Him. He is worth waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith, exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing when it comes. The Lord’s people have always been a waiting people”
– Charles Surgeon

“Lord thank you for your love and your promises.  Help us to rely on your timing and not our own.  Sometimes we think we know what is best and push for an outcome that is not in your will or your timing.  Please show us when to stop and when to go forward.
Help us to put our lives in your hands.  Amen”
