The ‘Wait For” situation connotes an absence and/or an expectation of an arrival, a delivery, a start, a finish, etc. Waiting for God means we are expectant to see Him come to our help, hear His decision concerning a matter, waiting to see His answers to our prayers, waiting for some God activity in our lives or the lives of those we love. First, we must know that God is good to those who wait. It is a two-way street, He is good to you during waiting, you trust him while waiting. (Psalm 27:13-14)
When we are in a place of waiting for God, what should our posture be? How does God desire we wait for Him? Let us look at 3 key postures:
- Hope: A posture that says I know and expect that You will come to no matter when,
- Joy: A most challenging one but the key when you are in a place of waiting for (remember that the Joy of the Lord is your strength); joy builds strength for the Wait (Psalm 27:14). Yes, it does seem rather challenging waiting with Joy for God to come, most especially in a very tight situation/trouble.
- Faith: An assurance that His perfect will must surely come to pass, full on trust mode! This is you knowing that no matter what God activity happens, it is His ultimate will for you in Christ Jesus.
He is a good God. Ever faithful. Remember that He knows all you are going through and desires the best results for you.
