Sometimes last week, the Lord said to me, “Oluwadamilola, I know you feel frustrated, tired and want to give up on everything but before you do that, wait! Wait on Me, I am working! Even if you cannot see it yet, I am up to something, just wait for me, wait patiently.”
Guess what? I cried my eyes out!
See, I know and I just don’t know it by reading it from a book, I have been there a lot of times, I have seen and experienced what it means to wait on the Lord for a particular season to end and a new one to begin.
The scripture tells us in Romans 8:25 that “But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently.”
I agree that the season of waiting is a very tough one, it is not for the faint-hearted, it takes faith to wait, waiting requires patience and patience is a virtue that is developed over time but the good news is waiting can be more beneficial when we wait aright on God while He’s working all things out in our favor at the secret place which of course, we cannot see, and just because we cannot see it with our physical eyes doesn’t mean the Lord isn’t working on our behalf.
Life won’t always be like this, this season will not last forever, trust me, we just need to patiently wait on the Lord. Our waiting is part of the process of becoming what He wants us to be.
I believe our waiting period is a tool in God’s hands and when we get to the fullness of the appointed time, we will see how the period of waiting fitted into His plans for us. Waiting is not wasting, we are only being prepared for what’s to come.
God’s timing is flawless and even though it may not reflect our expectations but we must practice patience and trust His perfect knowledge of the time required for us to get to our next season.
This month, I pray for you that your strength never fails, you will be patient enough for the Lord to work through your waiting season. You will not throw in the towel before your appointed time of blessing and when your long-awaited season comes, it will be worth the wait. Amen.
Happy New Month Beloveds!
