This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Galatians 6:9 (ESV)
Today I’m asking a question: How should you wait on God?
Sometimes you’ll get to a place in your spiritual walk where you realize that in order for you to go higher, you must first go deeper. Learning how to wait on God is your opportunity to go deeper with Him.
Yet sometimes waiting on God can feel like an eternity. This is what prompts you—sometimes—to take matters into your own hands. So the question is, if you must wait on God, then how should you wait on Him?
One word—patiently. Patiently doesn’t mean passively, but it does mean you should resist the urge to take the outcome out of God’s hands and into your own. This is exactly the decision that David had to make.
You recall how jealous King Saul was of David. In fact, Saul kept David on the run for years because he was trying to kill him. Then, one day, Saul walked into a cave where David and his men were hiding.
In that moment, David became weak, and he stepped forward to take Saul’s life. Imagine running for years from a person who is trying to cause you harm, and now you have the chance to cause them harm!
Yet David quickly caught himself and resisted the urge to kill Saul. He made the faithful decision not to take the outcome out of God’s hands and into his own.
Is there a situation in your life where you’ve been demonstrating patience, but you are now growing weary? If so, remember these words: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 (ESV)
So today, patience.
