When God gives you a promise, carry it to full term. When it’s time for delivery, who can stop it? “Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your God. (Isaiah 66:9)
DON’T GIVE UP!
EXPECT GOD TO GET HERE SOON!
(Psalm 31:24 MSG)
While waiting, FEED ON HIS FAITHFULNESS being CONFIDENT that He who began a good work in you will bring it to FULL completion. He is NOT a covenant-breaker but a promise-keeper God.
While waiting, FEED ON HIS LOVE. “Jesus said, I HAVE LOVED YOU as The Father has loved me. REMAIN IN MY LOVE “(John 15:9 NLT). Be rooted and grounded in His love for you. No matter what you’ve done, be fully persuaded that NOTHING can change His mind. You may think that His love is too good to be true … I’m telling you now that IT IS INDEED TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. This is GOOD NEWS! When you believe this truth, SURELY it will set you free.
While waiting, OBEY. When you hear His voice on to the next step, do not harden your heart for He is positioning you to receive what He has for you even if it doesn’t make sense. Obey without a thought process humbly submitting yourself to Him. Obedience is an expressed action of remaining and abiding in His love. You don’t obey because you HAVE TO. You obey because YOU WANT TO.
While waiting, BE JOYFUL. “Jesus said, I have told you these things … THAT I LOVE YOU…” (John 15:11). God’s love never fails. When your foot is slipping, it is His unfailing love that will support you. When doubts fill your mind, His comfort gives you renewed HOPE AND CHEER. Oh yes, He will CHEER YOU UP!!! He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing. What can be better than that? When you’re FILLED with HIS PERFECT LOVE, fear goes out of the window and YOUR JOY WILL OVERFLOW.
While waiting, BE FOUNDED ON HIS GOODNESS. When you are foundationally grounded on the goodness of God, even if what you see with your eyes is contrary to what you’re believing for, you will always go back pointing to His Divine Nature of being a GOOD GOD Who is always in a GOOD MOOD.
While waiting, PRAISE AND WORSHIP HIM for He is worthy. God-friendship is for God-worshipers. They are the ones He confides in. Worship puts your focus back to the One Who knows what is best for you and when it will come to you. Like a flower that fully blooms beautifully in its time, your promise will SURELY come to fruition at a perfect time.
Enjoy this journey of life with Him Who deeply loves you. His love NEVER fails.
“But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”
