TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
THE WAITING GAME (1)Psalm 37:34
You remember it vividly. One minute that person was praying for you, the next it was as if God himself was next to you, topping your heart to the brim with dreams and ambitions. Everything in that moment made sense. The struggle to find out why you were put on this earth was over. It was all clear now. God had a purpose for your life, tailor-made for you.
And then nothing. The fuzzy feeling faded. Everyday life kicked in. And here you are now with nothing to show for it. Either God has let you down or you slipped up? What went wrong? Why has God screwed up the blueprints? Why isn’t He playing ball?
Truth is, God can’t lie. And what has been promised will come to pass. It’s just often there is a wait. And how you choose to wait is going to determine your happiness levels in the meantime. Waiting with frustration is not going to be good for you. Frustration will lead to misery and mistakes and doubt. Waiting with anticipation will be far healthier. Waiting on God will draw you closer to Him.
Meditate on this promise: ‘Don’t be impatient for the Lord to act! Keep travelling steadily along His pathway and in due season He will honour you with every blessing.’
