Wait for it...
“But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” -Romans 8:25
That is a popular catchphrase that we see on tv shows today.
Remember Elijah and how he proclaimed to Israel that heaven’s doors would slam shut and no rain would come in punishment for their sins, three and one half dry years passed. Then, he went to Mount Carmel and bowed his face to the ground and Ahab went to look for clouds.
On his seventh try, Ahab came back and said, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.” -1 Kings 18:44
Sometimes, we can pray and pray again, waiting for an answer. But, are you watching expectantly for the answer like Elijah did? Are you watching for the slightest sign of God’s movement? Don’t give up waiting and implement your own action! Hurry is the death of prayer. Stay tuned in to God.
Some answers need that wait-for-it attitude. In those waiting times, how do we wait?
Wait for it…Expectantly!-Psalm 40:1
Wait for it quietly — Psalm 62:5
Wait for it patiently — -Psalm 37:7
Bow before God and Wait For It! Something is coming! He is working on your behalf! You can’t see it...you can’t hear it but…. It’s Coming!
When wait patiently and expectantly on God in the midst of horrible circumstances, SUDDENLY God breaks through. So don't give up! Don’t stop believing! Stay full of hope and expectation. God's power is limitless! He will break through for you!
Father God, in those long periods of prayer when it seems there is no answer, I will look up to You and wait expectantly, patiently, and confidently, that I may be blessed in my waiting because I am trusting you will help as you have promised. In Your Mighty Name I pray, Amen.
“…I will station myself…” Habakkuk 2:1
