THERE IS GRACE TO WAIT

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Scriptures:  Isaiah 64:1-4 (NLT), Isaiah 63, 40:29-31, 41:10, 55:8-9, Hebrews 13:5 (AMP), Lamentations 3:24-26, 33, Psalms 27:14, 40:1-5 (TLB), Psalms 143:10-12, 18:6, 98:1 (NLT) , 2 Peter 3:8-9 (NLT), Romans 5:1-5 and Luke 6:46-49

 Too often we get ahead of God because we do not realize the benefits of being processed while we are waiting. Like many processed foods, they have to be prepared and are pre-packaged for immediate consumption. Like, a woman waiting for a husband or a man waiting for a wife. Whether waiting for a new car, healing or perhaps the return of a loved one, all forms of change require a waiting period.

Perhaps the reason why we sometimes stumble and are irritated with God is because we do not realize that there is grace to wait while we are waiting.  In short, if we would realize that while we are waiting for God to move on our behalf, the provision for grace to wait until he does has already been given. 

The Prophet Isaiah said, “no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him.” In other words, he understood the benefits of waiting on God. Through fervent intimacy with God, he remained unchanged by what he saw while waiting until the expected happened.  Therefore, might we choose to grasp the profitability of waiting in expectation for God’s will to be manifested in his timing and not ours?

In other words, waiting is the grace perfected conduit utilized by God in the restorative process of our bodies, minds and emotions. Waiting confirms our importance to God. Waiting creates a period of time during which we can learn to trust God. Waiting teaches us who God is; not merely who we want him to be. One of the most ineffable benefits of waiting is that it addresses the root of the issue, as oppose to the superficial.
