Much of life is spent waiting. Too often, when things don't happen on our timetable, we get down and discouraged or anxious and fretful. That's because we're not waiting for the right way.
Today's scripture talks about the return of our saviour, but god has placed dreams and desires in every person's heart. But most times, there's a season of waiting involved. Maybe you're waiting for a relationship to improve; waiting to get married; waiting for a promotion; or waiting to overcome an illness. But there's a right way to wait and a wrong way to wait.
Notice that today's verse below doesn't say if you wait, it says as you wait. The fact is that we're all going to have to wait. It goes on to say that we should consider how the farmer waits — patiently and eagerly. We're not supposed to sit around and be discouraged; we're supposed to be hopeful, positive, and full of expectancy!
Today, no matter what you are praying for, expect things to change in your favour. Today could be your turning point. As you wait with patience and expectancy, you'll open the door for God to move. He'll fight your battles, and you'll see the abundant harvest He's promised in every area of your life. Hallelujah!
“Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord's return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen.”(James 5:7, NLT)
Yahweh, today I choose to wait expectantly for You. I know that You are working behind the scenes. Grant me the patience to believe that my wait won't be in vain, and my spiritual dreams and aspiration will come to pass. I put my total trust and hope in You, knowing that You have good things in store for my future. God, as I wait for Your second coming, teach me to help others to be ready also, in Christ's name! Amen.
