Waiting on God has two really important components. A complete dependence on God AND a willingness to allow Him to decide the terms, including the timing of His plan.
While we wait, some times we have to hold on tight and some times we have to let go. But we must always do so with hope filled expectation and trust, knowing that God is not making us wait just to see how long we can “take it.” But there are times I believe God delays His answer, and we will wonder why He seems so reluctant to intervene in our situations.
God puts dreams in our hearts and writes a destiny over our lives. And if we trust Him enough to take Him at His word, we will find ourselves on a journey toward the fulfillment of that dream, even if we don't fully understand what He's doing right now.
Remember, storms will come, lions will roar, and our fears will be confronted. And when our paths face difficult detours, He will lead us - refining us, strengthening us and continuing to prepare us for that place of promise.
Your current situation is not permanent...it’s purpose!
Things could look totally broken, devastating, unknown or hopeless in your life right now, but you must know that God’s intentions are to always bring you to a place of clarity, wholeness, healing, restoration and purpose in your life!
Whenever I think about hard battles, I think about David & Goliath. If ever there was a lopsided battle, this was it! You’d think that David wouldn’t have had a chance. Goliath was a giant. Yet David, a small shepherd boy, agreed to fight him.
I’m sure Goliath must have thought it was some kind of joke when David showed up on the battlefield, with what appeared to be only a slingshot, but that wasn’t the case.David had MUCH more than a slingshot. You see, David had God on his side. When he came to fight Goliath, he didn’t come in the name of the king – he didn’t come in the name of David, He came in the name of God – and poor Goliath didn’t even have a chance.
It gets better! It might not seem like it right now, but I promise you, It will get better!
I have certainly experienced my share of heartbreak through the years and I wish I could tell you the exact time of the week when the sun will begin to shine again for you too, but I can’t.
But what I can tell you from my own experience is this, that your heart WILL begin to put itself back together again eventually, piece by piece. And one day you’ll look in the mirror and begin to recognize yourself again.
