Are You Waiting on God? Part Three

Are You Waiting on God? Part Three

“In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning, I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” Psalm 5:3

Waiting on God can be difficult when it seems like sometimes He doesn’t answer our prayers the way we want Him to. We may be waiting on Him to fix a problem in our lives or to change someone else’s heart. We may be waiting on Him to do something great in the world. But while we are waiting, we must remember to watch with expectancy and keep asking God to help us, as today’s bible verse said.

Elijah was a man who waited on God. He showed great patience while waiting for God to answer his prayers. In 1 king 18:42-46, Elijah prayed seven times for rain to come so the drought could end. He didn’t give up on God, even when it seemed no answer was coming. Instead, he watched with expectancy, knowing God would answer him in His time. Even though Elijah’s servant kept saying, “there is nothing there,” Elijah didn’t give up. He knew God was still working in the situation, even if it wasn’t the way he had expected.

Habakkuk 2:1 says, “I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the ramparts. I will watch to see what He will say to me and how I should answer when corrected.”

Brethren, we can learn a lot from Elijah’s example of patience even when people around can see it yet. When we’re waiting on God, we need to be patient and keep trusting Him. We shouldn’t get discouraged if it seems like He’s taking longer than we want Him to take. Instead, we should watch for His answers with expectancy, knowing they will come in His time. Expectancy is one of the keys when it comes to waiting on God. We need to be hopeful that He will answer our prayers in the best way for us.

Psalm 130:5 says, “I wait for the LORD; my soul does wait, and in His word, I put my hope.” In other words, when we are waiting on God, we need to have patience and watch with expectancy for the Lord to move. We should be diligent in prayer and read His Word to understand His plans for us better. Let us not forget that God is always faithful and will never leave or forsake us. Therefore, we can trust Him to do what is best for us. Psalm 55:17 says, “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.” Amen.

Prayer:
1. Thank you, Jesus, for loving me.
2. Obadiah 1:17 says, “But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness, and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.” So now, I pray in the name of Jesus, by the unusual grace and anointing that flows from Zion, you shall be delivered from stagnation and delay, and you shall possess your possessions today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
