When you are waiting on God’s promises to come to pass, more often than not, we are tempted to look at what hasn’t happened rather than focusing on WHO gave us the promise in the first place. When we focus on what we can see, a sickness or disease, a lost family member, a empty womb, *enter your circumstance here*, our emotions come raging in like a flood and we lose our eternal focus.
I am a Christian that is ALL for feeling your emotions and acknowledging them. Jesus walked in our shoes and knows exactly what we are going through and there is a reason in Psalms that he tells us that he has all our tears in a bottle. We have a God that can sympathize. Not only can he sympathize, but he cares. He cares so much that he wants you to lay down what you are feeling so he can exchange it with his yoke which is light and filled with his truth.
Understand that if things have not seemed to come to pass, things are not over.
TRUST in HIM.
Know that if it seems like everything is crumbling around you, that there is no such thing as defeat in the Kingdom of God! You are more than a conqueror and victorious through Jesus Christ!
If you are waiting on a promise, remind yourself of how he has been faithful every single time in the past. Praise him for the promise that is GOING to come to pass. Like a thank you note in advance for what is about to come!
As this verse in Hebrews states, follow those that were PATIENT and STAYED IN FAITH until the promise was fulfilled. (Hebrews 11 is a great chapter for this! But I am sure you have some heroes of faith somewhere near you!)
Being patient and standing in faith are two things that can only been done through the power of the Holy Spirit! Being patient actually means long-suffering, endurance, perseverance, and steadfastness. While faith is “God’s warranty” that what he said will come to pass IS going to pass!
Remember not to put your trust or praise in the wrong place. God is a God who can make the impossible, possible. He is making things happen that you cannot see yet. TRUST IN HIM. Praise him for WHO he is, WHAT he has already done, and WHAT is GOING to come to pass.
