But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. – Romans 8:25
Recently, I’ve been waiting for God to show up. I’ve got a few things on my list that need to be taken care of. I feel like I’ve been working so hard and have been so patient that in no time, God will give me what I’ve been praying for. This is a rough place to be in, but patience is truly the key in this process.
When we’re feeling stuck in the waiting place, our society says, “Get out and do something about it.” You’ll be told to smile more, care less, be happy, and think good thoughts.
Good advice, but sometimes change is outside our control. Know that we’re not in charge, yet, GOD GIVES US CONTROL OF WHICH DIRECTION OF LIFE WE WANT TO TAKE.
You’ve probably got a list of things you want to see happen, just like me! Perhaps you are waiting for a job, for healing, for restoration in a relationship, or for wisdom to know where you should go next. Here’s a prayer to help.
I know that I am always wrapped up in to what will happen next.Forgive me for how I have worried about this situation. Forgive me for doubting your love and care in my life. Forgive me for my discontentment as I wait for what happens next. Forgive me for being impatient.
In Jesus name’
Although you prayed, know that God is right where you He always said He would be. He’s never left you and He will never forsake me. He hears all of your cries. In fact as David wrote in Psalm 139, He know your thoughts before you even think them. He knows exactly what is happening in your life and what will happen next. All things are in His control and nothing can happen apart from His will. Not a sparrow falls to earth without God willing it to and He know the number of hairs on my head. He is never surprised. Even about the issues in your life today. He know why this is happening and will use it for His glory and your good. ❤️
