God– The eternal being who created and preserves all things.
Trust- Firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
Timing- The choice, judgment, or control of when something should be done. A particular point or period of time when something happens.
“Have you ever questioned your trust in something or someone? Have you ever gotten fed up playing the waiting game for a certain thing or situation to happen?”
“Trust God, Wait on his timing”. I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase before by someone or read it somewhere. Maybe you have even said it to someone. But the truth is, do we really trust God and his timing? Do we truly wait prayerfully for the things we want to come into existence?
In an Article I read by Joyce Meyer Called, “When God’s waiting is too long” it states:
“We spend a lot of time in our lives waiting because change is a process. Many people want change, but they don’t want to go through the waiting process. But the truth is, waiting is a given—we are going to wait. The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way? If we wait the wrong way, we’ll be miserable; but if we decide to wait God’s way, we can become patient and enjoy the wait. It takes practice, but as we let God help us in each situation, we develop patience, which is one of the most important Christian virtues.”
Something I’ve learned is you can’t wait on God if you do not trust him. If your actions are proving you to be manipulating your way into a purpose you are not prepared to receive you will destroy it.
An inheritance claimed to soon does not end up blessed in the end. We must realize that waiting time is not wasted time. God allows us to wait in certain seasons of our lives whether it be for a job, a change in location, or a relationship, because he is preparing us to succeed in these areas. When we jump ahead of him and his timing is when we run into problems.
Those who expectantly wait for God will not be put to shame. It is important to wait respectfully, joyfully, and confidently that God will come through for you. Let endurance have it’s perfect result and do a thorough work in you. Be completely developed in your faith lacking nothing!
Joyce Meyer also stated:
“God wants us to live by discernment—revelation knowledge, not head knowledge. It’s difficult to exercise discernment if you’re always trying to figure out everything. But when you’re willing to say, “God, I can’t figure this out, so I’m going to trust You to give me revelation that will set me free,” then you can be comfortable in spite of not knowing. Trusting God often requires not knowing how God is going to accomplish what needs to be done and not knowing when He will do it. We often say God is never late, but generally He isn’t early either. Why? Because He uses times of waiting to stretch our faith in Him and to bring about change and growth in our lives.”
I hope this message will be helpful. Never run ahead of God even when the wait seems unbearable. Stay focused and persistent in prayer, and all that is meant for you God will provide!
