As humans, the mind can often trip us up and even confuse us. On the other hand, it can enable us to do and accomplish great things. Yet, it is all about how we apply our minds, especially while waiting on God.
Because of this, we can either allow our minds to get the best of us, or we can use the Word of God to keep our thoughts in submission to the Truth. What is this truth? The one and only Jesus Christ!
You see, when we are waiting for an answer or a solution to any situation, the way has already been made. Through His precious blood, Jesus overcame every sickness, lack, or manner of evil in this world. For the unbeliever, it is hard to fathom, but believers know that this is true. Yet, we must still, daily, remind ourselves of this truth!
As soon as we feel anxious or out of control with fear, there is only one solution, and it is the Word of Truth. Whether you open it, quote it, or meditate on it, use it to your advantage. Yet, when you use it, believe that it is true.
Better still, DON’T WAIT until you are full of fear and worry, apply the Word daily while you are waiting on God. Believe that God loves you, He is always on time, and He never fails. He knows what we need. He will make sure that we receive it, when we need it the most.
Until then, remind whatever is worrying you that you are NOT alone. You are not by yourself. No. Though the waiting is long, it won’t last. How long is up to the God Who loves you the most!
Just like God came through before, He will again and again. While you are waiting, live like you are not worried. Live like you have hope and are held in His hands.
Otherwise, will worrying help? Will it add anything good to your life or give you peace? Will it speed up the process and make it happen sooner?
I know that it’s hard, but don’t give up. Keep looking up. Your help is here. By His Spirit, God is loving you and providing for you each day you are waiting.
Then, when God deems it the right time, because He knows about your situation and how to handle it, He will grant you an answer to what you are asking about. Be ready to receive it with thanksgiving. Whatever the answer may be, know it is for your good and His glory (Romans 8:28). Therefore, keep your attitude of expecting that He will work it out for you, until He does. Amen.
“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. ”Isaiah 40:29-31
