If you only knew what God was preparing for you when you wait.
When God is about to release your blessing, His plans for your life, or take you to the next level, thats when the distractions come so you can be out of line. That’s when the feeling of impatience steps in so you don’t hold on and see your turnaround.
The bible says that when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered to make Gods. ( Exodus 32:1)
But little did they know at the time of their impatience was the time God had released His plans to Moses which will take them to a greater level of intimacy with God. What the Israelites were thinking and what God was planing were on completely different level. Just know that God will go beyond your expectation when you wait on Him.( isaiah 65:9
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.)
Should time be a factor of how long you stay on your walk with God? Should time be a factor of your commitment to God?
You’re waiting for the job, you’re waiting for the husband, you’re waiting for the child, you’re waiting for the car. You’re waiting for somebody. You’re waiting for money.
What about waiting on God? When we tune our focus on or wait on things, we become impatient.
But when we tune our focus on God and wait on God, we become productive in the time of waiting. Because we know that even if the blessing hasn’t arrived yet we are in His will and it will happen.
God’s word does not return to Him void. As it is written in Isaiah 55:11
so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
But when we put our hearts and focus on the things we want , we loose focus! We have to learn to encourage ourselves to refocus ,even when we become unfocused.
The Israelites put their focus on Moses’s return. Not on God almighty. Not on God who they waited on and fed them manna, not on God who they waited on and save them from their enemies. Because they tuned their focus from God who never fails to the return of Moses. They put their focus on how long Moses was taking to come back.
Not knowing that even if Moses was to arrive or not, God’s promises will always come to pass.
Even if things haven’t been happening in the order you have expected them to happen, God’s promises will always come to pass.
God can release His blessings in the midst of any circumstance. It may not be when everything is nice and smooth in your life. It may be at the time of struggle, the times of difficulty, the times where you feel inpatient. But where will your focus be at that moment? Will it be on the current circumstance or your expectant blessing? Or will it be on the mighty God who will release the blessing.
Your current circumstance does not dictate your future. Because God can open a mind-blowing opportunity for you tomorrow. When you don’t take your eyes of Him.
