God & Waiting
“You’re in good company” I heard God speak to my heart one day many years ago when I was asking Him how much longer would I have to wait for a particular prayer to be answered. To be honest, His words startled me until He began to bring to mind some of the spiritual giants in the Bible who were called to ‘wait’ many years before seeing God’s promises fulfilled in their lives.
“For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation.” (Psalm 62:1)
Waiting in God’s economy is similar to being prepared. During the early stages of being called to do something for God we are naturally eager to see the fulfillment, but God knows that we are not prepared to sustain it. For most of us our eyes are on being established and not on the God who establishes.
“He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress, I shall not be greatly shaken.” (Psalm 62:2)
Are you moving in the direction of God alone becoming your rock and your salvation? If yes, then your waiting season is bearing fruit. You are beginning to understand that there is a connection between your waiting, your preparation and the fulfillment of your calling.
“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.” (Psalm 62:5)
Embrace the waiting and allow God to become your rock, your salvation and your fortress. When your preparation is near completion you will not be easily shaken and you will know that salvation comes from God alone.
