Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him… Psalm 37:7 KJV
I can sit and watch clouds for hours. I find it helps me to be patient. Clouds are easier to watch and wait for as they move slowly across the sky but when an answer to prayer is not quick in coming we get restless.
Have you ever found yourself focusing on the prayer itself and on the answer we desire to that prayer. While we know it’s good to be positive, and we know God will answer in His time, we need to sit at tines and wait on Him, the one who meets all our needs—and He’s never late.
It’s while we wait that we need to keep our eyes fixed on the Lord, study His Word and find instruction, comfort and encouragement. We need to trust Him and know that He can and will do what He considers best for His children.
There’s one thing I have learnt through waiting; it gives me the opportunity to give God the glory for an unwavering assurance that He has all things under control. Everything is in His hands and there is a time for everything.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” NIV. Verse 11 says, “He has made everything beautiful in His time.”
Wait in hope, perseverance, patience and joy because His grace is sufficient for me.
Lord, help us to be patient with answers to prayer. Keep our eyes fixed on You knowing all things will come to pass in Your perfect timing. Amem
