Most of us don’t like times of waiting. We’re interested in the destination, but God is interested in the journey. When we understand that He’s working in us along the way, waiting and patience become a part of the process. When you stay faithful in the waiting times, when you don’t get impatient and complain because it’s taking so long, when you don’t get upset because the door closed, when you’re traveling steadily along God’s pathway and honoring Him, He will give you every blessing.
You won’t have to make it happen in your own strength, and you won’t have to manipulate people or try to force the door to open. God will give you the position, give you the spouse, give you the influence. Don’t fight the wait time. You’re not falling behind. God has already lined up the blessings He’s going to give you. He’s already put your name on things bigger and better than you’ve imagined. Now keep traveling steadily, keep trusting Him when you don’t see anything happening.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that there is a purpose for times of waiting, whether I understand it or not. Help me to be patient, to be faithful, and to rest in the fact that it’s all part of Your process. I believe that I am right where You want me, and that You have every blessing already lined up for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
