WAITING JOYFULLY WITH EXPECTATIONS

One of the hardest thing to do for most folks is to wait for something or someone. But waiting has it’s highs and lows,but it depends on what you are waiting for. However,no matter what you are waiting for;Waiting should always be joyful, pleasurable, and full of high hopes and expectations. For example waiting for a child to be born after waiting for seven to nine months or simply waiting for a paycheck at the end of the week. So why is it so hard to wait on God when His promises are surer than a baby being born or a paycheck at the end of a week or two or monthly. 2 Peter 3:9 tells us that, “God is not slack concerning His promises, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” Is it because of unbelief why some of us find it hard to wait on God?

To some people waiting is pleasurable, while to others it is disastrous, because of lack of patience, faith, hope, and unbelief. Are these the reasons why folks are giving up on the return of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. As believers we should never fall in this category because Isaiah 40:31 tells us, “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.” So what is your problem?  Who are you looking at?  Who are you looking to?  Who is your supplier?  It better be God, because it tells us in Philippians 4:19 that God is our supplier.

David’s testimony of waiting should encourage us; “wait on the Lord,be if good courage,and He shall strengthen your heart;wait ,I say,in the Lord” {Psalms 27:14}. Then in Psalm 40:1-5  he said, “I waited patiently for the Lord, and He inclined or turned unto me, and heard my cry; He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings, and He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God, many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.” So instead of murmuring, complaining, and trying to find your own way out, we should be praising and rejoicing while waiting. Singing to God brings faster results, don’t allow the devil to steal your song, sing to the glory of God!

Why is it so hard for you to wait for Jesus’ return? Is it because sin is enticing you or compelling you in the wrong direction. If you had a taste of the devils world you know it’s too sweet to be true, because it’s temporary, and above all it leads to destruction. Jesus said  in John 14:1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God believe also in Me; in my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; That where I am there you will be also.” So why do you have a problem waiting, that’s a God-given promise, just like when He came to save and redeem us. Don’t give up on God and He will not give up on you.

“Blessed is the man who maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” -Psalms 40:5
