Wait On The Lord

Image may contain: cloud, sky, road, outdoor and nature

The wait is inevitable. It's the wait that builds character and test your allegiance. How well do you obey GOD, when you hear a direction to take?

It doesn't matter what we do or who we are, there are times where we will just have to wait. It's our response in the time of waiting that shows us who we are.

I recently went to a super busy Wal-mart when I was leaving, I saw a car turning out of the parking space in the exit lane, I heard go that way, I ignored the thought and figured it may be quicker if I just roll on down to the other exit lane. I passed another lane to get to a third one and ended up having to turn around anyway, When all that time I could have just listened to my GOD conscience and avoided even further delay and wasted time.

That's when i heard it. "The wait is inevitable." 

It definitely is, as long as we live life it's best to follow GOD's direction and not be led by what we see. 
Still I am certain to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the LORD; be strong and courageous. Wait patiently for the LORD. Psalm 27: 13-14
To wait is to be in a place of service. Have you ever heard somebody talk about "Waiting tables"? It's kind of the same concept.

"To wait on GOD" is an act of prayer, It is to ask with all we are: "Lord in this allotted time of life that I have, how can I serve you?.

The best thing to do is honor GOD's voice of direction and trust GOD during this time. To trust, we have to take time to be familiar with the divine's voice. Praying, fasting, studying all this is "waiting" on GOD.

The wait is what develops trust and the experiences we never forget. The experiences we call miracles are not for GOD to show and prove. they're for the growth and development of our faith.

It's not about the wait, it's about the allegiance. It's in our allegiance that we are given authority.

"Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted
but those who hope in (wait on) the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:30-31

the whole book of Isaiah 40 is about GOD being the one who has your back.

Have you waited on GOD today?
