Waiting. Waiting is something we do on a day to day basis. There are normal routines of waiting for a stop light to change…waiting on the coffee to brew…or waiting to get off work. Then, there are more serious issues that require waiting for lengthy amounts of time. These issues require more than just waiting on time…they require a great deal of daily patience. Whether you are waiting for the results of a job interview or a medical report…waiting isn’t easy. We must dig deep into our faith…and trust that God is in control. But what happens when what you are waiting for takes too long? What if the results aren’t what you expected them to be? How do you react when things don’t go according to your anticipations? This is where we are tested in our faith walk. This is where we find ourselves at a cross road. This cross road is a decision we must make…in order to determine how we will face the outcome of what we have been waiting for. Decide to trust God…no matter what. Decide to lean on Jesus…and believe that HE will carry you through anything. Decide to decide that you will not allow the enemy to manipulate your thinking. Be determined that God will guide you through whatever you are facing. God is the light. His light will show you the pathway through the difficult times.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. ROMANS 12:11-13
This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. 1 JOHN 1:5
God is with us.
