Seasons of waiting are full of what seems to be wasted time. But, what if we have the wrong perspective? When you think about it, thinking God is wasting time is silly when you remember HE is the one who created it in the first place.
When we are in a season of waiting, we are given an opportunity to deepen our understanding of God’s faithfulness and love. It is also in seasons of waiting where our faith is challenged and what is in our hearts is truly revealed. Instead of enduring the season of waiting, what if we embraced the one who created the season in the first place?
When you are standing in faith during a time of waiting, it is important to remember God’s faithfulness. When we have our focus set on the things of heaven we can see God is not a man that he can lie and we can also see that God does everything out of the abundance of his love.
If God gave us what we wanted all the time, believe it or not many things would be detrimental to us and everyone around us. Do you remember a time thanking God for not giving you what you wanted? Yeah, me too.
God loves us so much that he doesn’t give us something until the time is right. Rather than enduring the wait, understand it is preparation done out of the abundance of his love.
The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.
Psalm 28:7 AMPC
Through trials and hardships, even the worst of circumstances we do not have to stress or be anxious. Unlike the world, we do not have to ‘figure things out’. In Psalm 28 we are instructed to trust in, rely on, and lean into God. The fruit of us doing this is that we are helped.
There is nothing too big for God. There is nothing that our loving father does not want to help us with. He does not get irritated when we stumble, he simply helps us back up.
Are you worried, anxious, and wondering what to do?
Trust in, rely on, and confidently lean on God. Go forth today knowing you are helped!
There was a time where I could not even see past the next hour. I was crippled in suicidal thoughts, anxiety, pain from abuse and trauma, and addiction. Entrapped in the condemnation from my own poor choices.
But when I called on HIS name, the name above ALL names, everything began to change! 👏💜🙌
Everytime I call out for him, he rescues me💜
There has never been a time where he has left me or forsaken me👏
Glory be to God for freeing me from what held me down, snapping every chain, and bringing me into complete freedom through his son Jesus Christ! 🙌
▪️I am healed, whole, and free.
▪️I am his beloved, his masterpiece, annointed and appointed.
▪️I am a child of God.
▪️God my rock (my support and defense)▪️
▪️God my defense (untouchable to my enemies, my ultimate safe place, my refuge)▪️
▪️God my salvation (helper, deliverance, victory, prosperity, health, freedom, the one who saves me from evil)▪️
✖I will not be moved (be carried, cast, be out of course, waver, slip, shake, or fall)✖
So thankful for God and his steadfastness, protection, and wisdom. He is such a good father to his kids. There is nothing I need that I have to be hesitant to ask, he gives freely and willingly. He knows the heart of everyone. So when I don’t understand, I just simply trust and he makes my paths straight.
Who is God to you?
What are you standing in faith for today?
Whatever it is, tap into God’s faithfulness!
The promises we have been given from God have no other option than to be fulfilled. What he has spoken, comes into existence.
His promises are not fulfilled on our faithfulness but on HIS.
Anything that tries to come against what he has promised, MUST BOW at the name of Jesus. No weapon formed shall prosper!
No longer waver in what he has said.
Be still and remember who HE is and give thanks for what is to come and what he has already done.
Many times there is process to the promise to refine us to be more like him.
He will never leave you nor forsake you.
His promises are yes and amen!
Tap into HIS faithfulness.
