Everyone reading this is waiting for something, right? Whether waiting for our circumstances to change; the birth of a child … or a grand idea; waiting for something small … or a miracle … waiting is part of our every day life.
And as you think about what you are waiting for … how often have you grown impatient, began to doubt or even given up hope? I know I have at times. But then I remember …
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
I remember that He created each one of us with a very specific plan and purpose, and I take comfort knowing that in HIS amazing love for us, HE gives us the wisdom and the patience to wait for those plans to come about ~ for God’s perfect timing! Here’s how …
“Wait and hope for and expect the Lord;
be brave and of good courage and
let your heart be stout [brave, strong] and enduring …”
Notice there is action required on your part ~
“Trust in the Lord and do good; …
(lean on, rely on, and be confident)
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and
He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord
[roll and repose each care of your load on Him];
trust also in Him and He will bring it to pass…
Be still and rest in the Lord;
wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him;
fret not …”
Psalm 37:3-7 (Amplified)
So, I am waiting with expectancy for many wondrous things, as I know you are. Seek and follow His guidance.
“When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. “Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” God’s Decree.” Jeremiah 29:12 (The Message)
God’s Love and Blessings to you and yours!
