I’ve spent much of my Christian walk waiting on God.
- Waiting on God to give direction.
- Waiting on God to open doors.
- Waiting on God to make things clearer.
- Waiting on God to supply the needed resources.
Throughout the stories of the Bible we often find God’s people waiting.
Think of Abraham who had to wait years for God to provide the promised son. Think of Noah and the many days he must have worked on the ark, yet he had apparently never seen rain. Think of the anointed David who had to wait to actually assume the position of king. Think of the disciples, taking Jesus at His word by following Him, but having to wait until they were released to do ministry. What about the followers of God who waited 400 years in silence between the Old Testament and the arrival of Jesus?
Waiting on God is a part of the Christian experience.
The waiting times are difficult to endure, especially if you are like me and generally struggle in the area of patience. Show me someone who has grown in their maturity in Christ and I can almost guarantee you they have had seasons where they were waiting.
I’ve learned, however, there are things I can be doing during the wait, which help me prepare when God chooses to act in my life.
Are you in a time of waiting? Perhaps some of these suggestions may help.
