“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
Have you ever had to wait for things to come to pass in your life? Have you ever waited expectantly only to have your hopes dashed or even snatched right out from under you? When that happens, it feels as though nothing will ever possibly go correctly. You want things to happen for you, and you want the good things to outweigh the bad. Sometimes it seems as though the bad far outweighs the good.
Your season of waiting may last days, weeks, or even months or years. Whatever season of waiting you’re in, whether it’s waiting for a job, a new promotion, or for you and your loved ones to be delivered from an illness that might be plaguing your family, God is still present. He is still with you, even in your season of waiting. He knows exactly what you’re going through, even before you’re going through it.
He knows what will happen before it even happens. That thought can scare you a bit though too, can’t it? You might be thinking “if God knows everything about my life, then why can’t he stop bad things from happening to my family or me?” The answer is that even though God knows everything that will happen in your life, is that He helps you choose between right and wrong. He also lets things happen to strengthen your faith.
When you’re in the middle of your season of waiting, it doesn’t mean God has abandoned you, either. He is still very present in your life, even when you don’t feel, or don’t see Him. He has never abandoned you. He never will. Think about it for a moment, are you in a season of waiting? Ask God to reveal His plans for your life during that time.
Some verses that remind you about waiting on God include 1 Corinthians 13:4 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast; it is not proud.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Romans 12:20 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
