Praising While Waiting

It may feel like the darkest of days, but hold on. When you are one with Christ, you know that there will be a brighter day. You also know that things always work for the good (Romans 8:28), because God never fails. When will this change come? How will things change? God only knows these answers. Yet, God promises that you have the victory in Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:57).

In the mean time, waiting may be on the horizon for you. Even so, as you wait, you can wait in faith. Along with this, you can continue to worship and praise God for all He has done and is about to do!

Behold, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.  2 Corinthians 5:17

Sometimes, waiting is difficult. However, it is often necessary and what must be done. The more you trust in God, the more waiting on Him becomes possible. It becomes possible, because you know that only God can do what He does for you. As a result of your waiting, with patience, others can witness what faith looks like in action.

But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.  Hebrews 10:39

For instance, others can see you taking steps of faith and speaking words of the same. Remember, this requires being led by the Holy Spirit and not your own ways or thoughts. It also requires remembering the importance of wanting only God’s will to be done in and through you.

But someone will say, "You have faith and I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.  James 2:18

Though you may, occasionally, feel down about things or complain about how your life is going, you do not have to stay there. You have a choice on how you respond to your life. This response can be to praise and worship God for who He is and what He has already done. In conjunction, you can thank Him for your relationship with Jesus Christ. If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, He is available to you today (Romans 10:9).
