Waiting for something in high expectations is one of the most difficult moments in ones life when you feel so tired, drained and helpless. It gets to the point when you keep asking “when God when?”, “When would you hear my cry? Is it today, tomorrow, next year or five years from now?”
We are living in a world where the society does not understand the essence of waiting on God. Everything is processed swiftly and speedily, think about it…. You place your food is the microwave in less than two minutes it is warm enough, the internet is more than hundred times faster than ten years ago, the computers processors processes data faster than before, transactions are processed speedily online to the extent that you don’t need a human being any more to speak to over the counter.
The question is have you waited so long on God for the manifestation of His promises and it seems like its taking ages to come to pass? I must confess that I have waited so long. But I know my wait is not in vain.
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. Isaiah 40:31
I have been waiting on the Lord for the secret petition of my heart for over nine years and it seems like my waiting would never end. I have decided to change my attitude to waiting on the Lord, I have decided to wait in joy, peace and a sound settled mind knowing in all awareness that the Lord almighty is seriously on my case and He will not rest until the manifestation of His promises comes to pass.
My strength is renewed moment by moment, day in day out, spending time in His presence studying His Word, I cling to Him for trust, wisdom and direction so I will not grow weary, loose focus or faint on the journey ahead. I might have waited so long but I know that my wait would surely reap rewards of harvest.
Yes I have waited so long, yes I am still waiting but no I not tired of waiting because my wait is not in vain. Our God is a perfect God and when He starts something He would surely finish it. The end of a thing is better than its beginning Ecclesiastes 7:8a. He is the Alpha and Omega, He is a just and righteous God. He has a perfect package that is being processed waiting for you. He has not forgotten you because He knows your name. It might have been so long and you are the point of loosing hope. You might have waited so long and persevering in waiting on God as I am, don’t give up. He has a better plan and purpose and allow Him to work through you so that His works would be perfect for your life to be a testimony and His name to be glorified
My declaration for you today is where you have sown in tears, pains and sadness, you shall reap in joy, peace and the fullness of all that He has in store for you. The time of favour is now , not tomorrow but now. The kairos time of breakthrough is now and I decree that you shall not miss it and you shall embrace it. It is time to change your attitude from bitterness and anger to longsuffering and peace, from despair to high hopes and faithfulness in Jesus Name.
