ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT, BUT IMPORTANT LESSONS WE MUST LEARN IS - 'TO WAIT ON THE LORD'.
Here and now, in the 'Sanctuary', but a 'taste' on this 'topic' which will be developed in a more extensive study in the 'Topical Bible Study Room' of this site. However, 'waiting on the Lord' is also an important part of coming into His Presence, sitting quietly and just - listening for Him to 'speak Lord, your servant is listening.' Therefore, some important passages of Holy Scripture for your meditation as you sit still and wait upon the Lord to 'speak' to you, through them. Do, add your own Scriptures for more thoroughness. Blessings!
WAITING ON THE LORD, HUMBLE AS A 'LITTLE CHILD: See such as 1 Samuel 3; Psalms 37:7, 69:3, 130.5; Proverbs 20:22; Isaiah 30:18; Lamentations 3:25-26; Micah 7:7; Luke 12:36; Acts 1:4; Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 1:7; Galatians 5:5; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; James 5:7; 2 Peter 3:13; Jude 21. NOTICE, THE BENEFITS OR 'BLESSINGS' FOR THOSE WHO - 'WAIT FOR THE LORD'. Take your time and do use the link above and 'search the Scriptures' for yourself, getting use to 'seeking His Voice in the Holy Scriptures'. Essential for your personal 'growth' in 'your own personal relationship' with the Lord. Be blessed. [Acts 17:10-12]
It is important to have a mind-set of realizing that Our Heavenly Father always has a reason or reasons for any delays in answer to our prayers. We are therefore 'learning' through 'waiting' that it is God who is in control of the timing with His wisdom. He is not moved by our finite - agenda. On the other hand, we will need 'faith' and to have 'courage', no matter the 'pressures' to be doubtful or feeling hopeless or timid, or to make a move ahead of His guidance. [Hebrews 11] Do 'meditate', and be blessed. [Meditate, to read and think about the words, over and over, as a cow chews the cud. Make it real to you! For real!]
a.) "O my God, in You I trust...Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed" [Ps. 25:2-3].
b.) "Wait for the LORD; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the LORD" [Ps. 27:14].
c.) "Don't be impatient for the LORD to act! Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and in due season he will honor you with every blessing" [Ps. 37:34].
d.) "I waited patiently for the LORD; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction" [Ps 40:1-2].
e.) "My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I shall not be shaken" [Ps. 62:5-6].
f.) "The LORD favors those who fear Him, those who wait for His loving kindness" [Ps. 147:11]
g.) "The LORD longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him" [Isaiah 30:18]
See also such as Isaiah 49:23; Isaiah 64:4; Lamentations 3:25-26; Habakkuk 2:3.)
h.) "Hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it" [Romans 8:24-25].
Now, get up and go about what you know to be about. Continue to rely upon Him. He will answer your most dearest of concerns when it is His perfect time; when it will be for your good and for the good of any others concerned. He will answer when it can only be attributed to - His Glory, something only He could do or bring about. And, it will be for the sake of Jesus Christ, who is our High Priest, praying for us. [Hebrews 2:7] With hindsight, you will realize how wise He was and is, and the answer will be in accord with His attributes of - All Knowing, All Powerful, and All Presence. You will live to be glad that He did not answer sooner, or, the way you may have thought. And, if the answer is 'no', you will live to understand, how blessed you are that His answer in some instances was - 'No!! Not for you. It is not the best I have for you.' For REAL!
You cannot go wrong, 'waiting on the Lord'. But, you can make a 'big mess', when you don't wait for Him. So, chose wisely to 'wait on the Lord'. Do not try to manipulate or force an issue. 'Wait upon the Lord'! Amen. Amen.
NOW, PLEASE PAUSE AND TAKE SOME TIME AND TRY THIS EXERCISE OF 'REFLECTION' - try to remember something you wanted or wanted to do, and it did not happen. Then, look back over the situation, in retrospect. Can you see what would have been the 'end result', and that it would not have been what you really expected or wanted??? That, was not 'coincidence', 'fate', nor 'chance'. That was the 'providential working' of the Lord God, who has EVERYTHING under control. Period. Further, this is 'the truth', even if you do not believe in Him, nor His Word. HE IS IN CONTROL. PERIOD. That is - BEING ALL POWERFUL - OMNIPOTENT. [Hebrews 1:3] Amen. Amen.
