waiting on god means letting god lead you moment by moment

Waiting on God is not always easy. It’s a challenge to see past how you feel or how your situation seems to pay attention to the Word instead. It’s difficult to exercise the patience necessary to stand until the answer comes. Yet, this is what faith does. Second Corinthians 5:7 says we are to walk by faith, not by sight (all the senses are implied). It’s through faith and patience that we inherit the promises (Hebrews 6:12).

Maybe you’re not especially encouraged by this news. It could be that your life is stretching before you like a vast desert land. The landscape seems the same for miles with no change in sight. But I want to give you a secret weapon so to speak – a key that will help you stay strong while you are waiting on God. What is this secret weapon? Take God by the hand and let Him lead you moment by moment.

All your seconds, minutes, hours and days are critical to the Lord.  They are not wasted time. You might only look at the result of your faith — receiving what you have prayed for — and God is too. However, He is also focused on your relationship with Him. He wants you to draw close to love and appreciate Him. He wants you to respond to His voice and His written commandments. He wants to guide you throughout each day.

Waiting on God means spending time in His Word. I’m not talking about five minutes either. I’m talking about diving in by studying the Word and meditating on it. Deuteronomy 8:3 tells you that man does not live by bread alone but by every Word that comes from the mouth of God. If the Word of God is sustaining your life, then you need as much of it as possible!

In the Hebrew, the word “wait” is not a passive word. Qavah means to become tightly fitted with the object you are waiting on. As you are waiting on God, you become more and more connected with Him. As you give yourself over to the Word — paying attention to it and striving to do what it says, God will speak to you. He’ll give you understanding about your life and will give you specific actions to take. For instance, He might tell you to get involved with Children’s Church at your place of fellowship. If you are looking for a Bible-believing church, He will make sure you learn about one. He’ll talk to you about your health, your marriage, your talents, abilities and more. After all, He wants you to be successful in all areas of life.

When you are full of the Word, it is never far from you. You could be out shopping, and a verse of scripture will come to you or you’ll start quietly singing a worship song. The Holy Spirit just might give you the answer to a question you’ve had right in the middle of the grocery store!

God wants you to have living contact with Him daily. Set aside the time for His Word and prayer. Turn to God throughout the day and acknowledge His presence. Welcome the Lord into that moment. Your relationship is not just about finding strength while you are waiting on God to answer your prayer although that is part of it. God wants you to ask and receive so your joy becomes full. But your relationship is also about the two of you loving on each other. God loves you, and He wants you to love Him too.

God wants to be good to you! That’s true because that’s who He is. The Bible tells you again and again that the Lord is GOOD. He wants to take you to a prosperous place. So, walk with Him. Let Him lead you moment by moment. Put your hand in His. Delight in His Word. Engage in praise and worship. Connect with other Christians. Yield to what the Lord is telling you to do both from the written Word and anything He puts on your heart. Seek to be a blessing. Continue to release your faith by speaking His Word over your life. Before you know it, you’ll have your desire in your hand. But the greatest reward of all is that you will be closer to Him.

by Karin Peavy April 29, 2015 Faith

The Bible tells us that it’s through faith AND patience that we inherit the promises. Faith will move mountains but if the mountain doesn’t move right away (and often they don’t) we have to keep standing on God’s Word until it does. We have to be willing to hang in there for the long haul.
