I’ve been lost here for so long but thanks God I was able to share you a quick post today while I was taking a short afternoon break here in the office.
Have you ever experience facing a lot of options, choices and decisions yet you don’t have any idea which direction to take? You know you want to move in the direction God is leading, but the problem is you don’t know which direction that is. You’re floundering, not knowing where to go, what to do, or how to do it. You can’t see what the outcome of each choice will be and many factors have to be considered in making each single decision.
I was reminded recently of the verse, “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart.” It led me to meditate on the wisdom of waiting for God, rather than making decisions when we can’t see clearly ahead.
I’m sure you can think of times in your life when you had to make a certain decision but you couldn’t seem to get any answers; but when you waited in prayer and with faith, trusting God to come through for you, He eventually made the way clear and you were glad you’d waited and trusted.
Waiting is an important element of the faith life. It’s not easy, but it’s part of the process that God uses to instruct us, teach us patience, build our character, and draw us closer to Him. The next time you’re in a holding pattern or in waiting mode, be encouraged. God will always make a clear way to our life if we just waited and trusted Him!
Scriptures that will help you today:
Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
Romans 8:25 (NKJV) But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
James 5:7-8 (NKJV) Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
I have to get back to work again.
Your sweetest Melody, ❤
