Devotional/Prayer – I will wait upon the Lord
When you feel you are in limbo, wait upon the Lord to sort it out. I find this to be particularly true when there is no answer as to what to do next or which direction to take.
Or in those situations where I may not even want to speak to someone because I cannot fully comprehend where I am, what is really going on, nor why I am there.
The scripture says “Do not turn to the right, nor turn to the left” and also “Do not look back”. If you cannot move forward, just wait. Let God put things into motion for you.
Thank Him and Praise Him and call upon your angels to help set your path straight.
Think about what God has to do to resolve your dilemma. How many people He has to change, who they are, what they have to do and how long it may take them to obey God, for you to receive your blessings.
It is what you do when you are waiting
Waiting is also an act of obedience. It is what you do when you are waiting that helps you to grow. Just like Peter, when he was walking on water, trust God, have faith that He has you and your situation under control. Do not act on your own might nor merit and just leave it to Him for as long as it takes.
Cast your cares. Be happy. Expect great things. Thank and bless Him, and wait. It is always a good idea to occupy your mind with God and Jesus while you are waiting.
Remind Him of His Word and all of His promises regarding how He said He will take care of you. That’s speaking to God and having a relationship with Him.
Waiting may be tough, but
I know that God is a great God. He is the Almighty, the Most High and He loves you. As tough as waiting may seem, it is always the best decision.
When God bestows His blessings on you for your obedience, you WILL know that He is Lord and that it came from Him. He reveals Himself in your blessings, so give Him thanks and praise.
The longer the waiting period, sometimes, the greater the testimony is on the greatness, love and mercy of God.
Prayer: I will wait upon the Lord
Heavenly Father, I thank you for taking care of all of our needs, especially when we are completely stumped regarding what we should do next.
Thank you for teaching us how to wait and what we can do to serve You during our waiting periods.
There is a great joy in having peace over what You can do and what we can expect from You, when You bestow Your blessings upon us. We thank You, Father for going ahead of us to take care of everything, with Jesus leading our paths.
Father, we will wait on You, as only You have the correct and best answers for us.
In Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.
