What to Do in Times of Waiting

enjoy-lifeGod makes everything happen at the right time. Yet none of us can ever fully understand all he has done, and he puts questions in our minds about the past and the future. I know the best thing we can do is to always enjoy life (Ecclesiastes 3:11-12 CEV emphasis added)

Proverbs 16:4 tells us “The Lord has a reason
 for everything he does…” (CEV).  We never know what God is going to do and when He is going to do it.  Because we are to live in expectancy, we need to just release our faith and go on about our day knowing that He will take care of our every need.  Jesus said don’t be anxious about anything (see Philippians 4:6).  Anxiety causes so many problems and zaps our joy.  Jesus also said don’t worry about tomorrow because tomorrow holds its own troubles (see Matthew 6:34).  Most people live in anxiety and worry, which does not change anything and it doesn’t please or move God.  

You have the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords on your side so give everything to Him and enjoy your life.  Smile, laugh, sing, shout, and dance.  God will never be late and He has the best antidote for your problems.  Life is too short to be anxious and worrisome all the time.  Every day wake up and confess this is the day for my breakthrough.  Just confessing this will bring joy because you’re going to go on throughout the day anticipating a breakthrough.   Anticipate with joy and excitement.  Even if it doesn’t come that day, start all over again tomorrow.  Waiting on God can be fun because you never know when, where, or how He will move on your behalf.  He most definitely will not move on doubt, fear, worry, self-pity, discouragement, so cheer up!  Today just might be your day so act like it!

Action Step:  You can’t figure out God’s plans, so stop trying.  Trust that He will make everything happen when it’s time for it to happen.  The best thing to do is pray, “Lord, let Your will be done and not mine.”  Enjoy life while God handles your concerns.

Meditation Scripture (s):

Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times. (Romans12:12 GNT)

No one really knows what is going to happen; no one can predict the future. (Ecclesiastes 10:14 NLT)
