EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Waiting on God is much more difficult than walking and moving about serving Him, waiting requires patience, and patience is a rare virtue.
In the days before WWL’S, I personally had many different times and idea’s where I sought to serve, seeking God in my actions and longing for results. I thought of many ways I wanted to be used but many times I found myself still in the waiting and learning process. It’s interesting that it took years of waiting and praying and continued obedience before God put my mind and body together with my purpose.
We can get relief knowing that God builds hedges around His people and we can look with confidence at that hedge from an aspect of protection when we aren’t yet ready for the purpose He has ahead of us.
When we see the hedge growing higher and higher we can get to a place we no longer see over it and then we wonder if we will ever get out of our “little” sphere of influence or minimal service where we are. Always remember your service of any kind is precious to the Lord. Although we may begin to feel confined, stay the course.
Sometimes it’s hard for us to understand why we do not have a larger area of service, and it becomes difficult for us to “brighten the corner where we are”, but I encourage you with this…God has a purpose in all of His delays the delays require some patience from us.
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord” KJV ( Psalm 37:23)
God invests in you because He intends to use you greatly. Please remember this every day you seek Him and look to Him continually of how you may serve Him. Sometimes there can be times where we must wait for instruction to come before we can move forward. It does not always mean His delays are His denials!
Learn to wait patiently on God as you serve Him wholeheartedly. He has so much in store for you. You are promised a life of abundance when you walk in complete obedience to His Word, please remember this.
