Inspiration for finding and fulfiling purpose.

waiting2We all have longings, cravings and desires that linger for so long, and we begin to doubt if we will ever have what we want. You can imagine the pain of a woman waiting on God to give her the fruit of the womb, or a graduate desirous of a good job, a frustrated employee seeking a raise or a new opportunity, the family struggling to pay bills and waiting for a financial breakthrough, the business deal that is yet to come through, a desire to get married and have a family.

These are just a few of the things that top our prayer list. Waiting is a part of life, and I would like to share things you can do when you are waiting on God for a breakthrough:

 What to do when you wait

When you lay your request before God, leave it there

We tend to go about worrying about our situation, and sometimes put on a sad face, even though we have presented our request to God. He knows our situation before we ask Him, and He is already working out a solution that will show up when we least expect.

Thank God in Advance

This is the time to start thanking Him in advance for what He will do and what He is working out for you, though you can't see anything else but the problem. Rejoice with those who are rejoicing over their breakthrough and be encouraged that it will be your turn soon enough.

Continue in Patience and Perseverance

These are two key virtues we must put to work when we are waiting on God. I know this is never easy, especially when you see others who are enjoying what you desire. Meditate on these scriptures;

Genesis 28:15 (New International Version) - "I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

 Philippians 1:6 (New International Version) - “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”

 Psalm 27:14 (New Living Translation) - “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”

The word of God is loaded with tons of promises that will stir up your faith as you wait on God to manifest in your life. Take out time to meditate on these promises until your faith becomes stirred up with an expectation of victory.

 Learning to wait on God to bring about His will is never easy, but as we do so, we learn that His will is perfect and He is always on time! His timing is never late. We can always count on our loving father. The on-time God!
