Dear friends, one of the greatest test of your faith is when you have to “wait” on GOD!
Do you know that GOD in HIS infinite mercy makes waiting easier?
He allows you get into a situation that cages you in, leaving you with absolutely no option, than to hold still, and wait for Him to show up for you!
If you are in that situation right now, don’t despair, GOD is helping trust in HIM to build up in you.
The season you are in, is both a training session and a trial of faith. Eventually, you will mount up with wings and soar!
Are you in between jobs and have done all that is humanly possible to get employment, and yet you are still in the unemployed statistics?
Rest easy. It is well with your soul. If you are born again, it’s not the devil on your case.
Remember: God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him, who are the called according to His purpose. (See Romans 8:28)
Work on loving God and functioning in His purpose, and all other things will be added to you.
I remember when I was at a dead end in life. I had prayed all manner of prayers, fasted and rebuked all ‘rebukeables’, broken all curses, confessed all known and unknown sins, and worshipped in songs and words.
One day, as I was soul searching, it dropped in my Spirit that, if I have been born again and transported into God’s Kingdom, then it must be God dealing with me. I’m no longer under the jurisdiction of the devil- he has no right over me.
From that day, my perception and perspectives changed. My life took a turn for the best.
I stopped seeing myself as a victim of circumstances and of the forces of evil.
I started seeing God as working in me, both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
With that insight, my focus returned to God, and I asked Him to help me understand what He has been trying to convey to me through the challenges.
All He said was, “trust in me’, and pointed me to Psalm 125:1-3
“They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever. For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.” (Psalm 125:1-3)
Dear People of God, to trust God is to have strong confidence in Him.
When you know the capacities and capabilities of God, you will rest in Him and wait on Him.
Reset your mind:
Instead of entering into depression because of present challenges, why don’t you consider it a rest-break! Come to think of it, when last did you sleep in? Now is the time to do just that!
A ministry partner once called me up lamenting about her inability to get employment. Because I now know some of the ways of God, I said to her:
“Enjoy the break: Eat, sleep, pray, study your Bible, and sleep some more. Enjoy some “ME-TIME with GOD!. Trust me my friend. You need to rest because after this time-out! you are going places and would not have time for pleasure.”
While waiting for God to show up strong for you, do what waiters do: serve!
See challenges as a spiritual work-out that will help you keep in shape.
Keep in view that, ‘The goal of the Christian life here on earth, is to develop Christlikness in worship, character and service.’
So dear friend, when you hit a dead-end street or feel caged-in, and you are born again: God wants you to selah!-stop and think.
Have a rest break. ENJOY!
Don’t let the devil steal your joy by making you believe you are jinxed, a failure etc. It is well with you. Shalom!
