To wait on the Lord means to wait for His help, that is, to trust in Him; to put our hope or confidence in Him.
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 43:31)
Waiting for the Lord is to expect, look for, and hope in Him. Waiting is costly but, the good news/joy there is that, it’s always worth it!
There are moments in life when you ask, “why do I have to wait/struggle for major achievements in life?
Why I’m I not married yet?
But, I want to announce to you that waiting works perfection in God’s children!
One of the greatest sacrifice we can ever offer for our breakthrough and testimony is WAITING.
Truth is, man is always in haste.
Recall, Eve was to much in haste to eat the forbidden fruit (“the woman saw that the tree was good for food…”, Gen. 3:6).
She did not remember the instructions God gave them.
Abraham was too much in haste to lie with Haggar.
Esau was too much in haste to eat the porridge.
Acts 1:4, Jesus gave this command to the apostles, “…Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my father promised”.
Are you still at your point of waiting, for that godly spouse, career breakthrough, financial enlargement, and a lift in your ministry? Or you have hastily left for other alternatives that cannot give you “The promise”!
One of the divine guidance of God over his children is leading them in the lane of waiting.
Waiting for God requires patience and faith in God; believing that He will give you what is due you. There is nothing as profiting, perfecting, beautifying, equipping and encouraging as waiting on God.
Job declared boldly, “…All the days of my struggle I will wait until my change comes” (Job 14:14).
Waiting is a choice! You can choose to wait and have the best deal with God or boycott and have your own deal.
God’s deal or your deal which one is better?
There is power in waiting!
I like the way KJV puts it, “But they that wait…” (Isa. 40:31).
See, waiting is not for everybody. Waiting is for those whom God has anointed for the uncommon, unusual blessings and miracles!
As a single, I had my moments of waiting for my miracle husband. And to the glory of God, God gave me my miracle husband!
I had a miracle wedding!! I am still enjoying a miracle marriage!
Notes From Pastor Dunamis:
The beauty in waiting is that you get to get the best of God at the end. For 27 years, I waited. No sex. There were pressures.
There were traps here and there. But God helped me, I refused to compromise, with the help of the Holy Spirit. At the end of the day, God gave a beautiful family. You can have yours as well.
This is not about new year resolutions or setting goals, it is in embracing the finished works of Christ and allowing the Holy Spirit yo help you.
As waiting singles, we sometime bring self inflicted delays and sometimes it is just about family issues.
However it is, they can be dealt with. This is the more reason for MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH PROGRAMME which begins on 1st February. God will give you the victory!
Your wedding will be a reality. It is 28 days of purging, cleansing, deliverance, prayers, adjustments, belief system, activating covenant, destroying curses and positioning yourself for that boo or bae in the Lord!
