Sometimes, His Answer is to Wait.

It’s difficult to wait on God, when we are closely involved in the outcome, but that is what we are supposed to do. The bible promises us in Isaiah 40:31,  31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

So, I’ve often wondered about what happens to those who don’t wait on God. Do they renew their strength? More likely, people who take matters into their own hands, instead of waiting for God to go before them and clear the way, suffer unnecessarily because they refuse to follow God’s divine order for their lives.

How can they rise above the storms of life, when they are so focused on the storm?

Instead, they drag through their day, desperately intent on carrying the burdens that were not meant for them to carry. People who haven’t learned to trust in the Lord with their cares, are destined to live their lives overwhelmed and defeated.

It’s unfortunate, really, when you think about how some people risk missing out on having peace of mind, just so they can maintain the control over their circumstances, instead of trusting God to work all things out for their good. 

It’s good to wait on the Lord. There are benefits to following his will, because he has already gone before us to make the way.

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
