I hate waiting. Nowadays there seems to be queues everywhere. What are you waiting for God to do in your life? One thing Iâ€™ve learned is that waiting should not be a passive thing. When weâ€™re waiting, weâ€™re on the lookout, we have expectation. We speak what we are expecting from God. We act like itâ€™s going to happen. We spend time making preparations.
When youâ€™re expecting someone special for dinner; you donâ€™t wait till they show up before you decide to start cooking. Most likely you start early in the day. You make sure the house is clean, you go to the grocery store, and maybe you buy some flowers for the table. You make preparations because youâ€™re expecting someone. Staying focused as you wait with excited expectation.
Today, the attitude we need to have while weâ€™re waiting for Godâ€™s promises to come to pass, and our prayers to be answered, is one of excited expectation and preparation. Put your faith to work as you prepare for Godâ€™s answer to come. Keep standing, keep believing, and keep hoping because your answer is on the way!
“â€¦faith without works is dead.”(James 2:20, NKJV)?
Pray With Me
Yahweh, I choose to put actions behind my faith today. Father, I trust that You are working in my life as I wait for Your promises to come to pass. God, I will wait the right way – with expectancy and without complaining and worrying, knowing that my faith in You opens the door for Your hand to move in my life, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
