Waiting on God...


We must learn to be patient and wait on God while waiting for a mate to come. Here are some pointers from Sarah Malley's book on what could happen it you don't wait.

1. We miss God's lessons
- God teaches us many things while waiting

James 1:3-5 "Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

2. We miss God's best.
-Many have no idea what they have missed because we are not willing to wait

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

3. We miss God's help
-God wants us to learn to be dependent on him

Galatians 4:29 "But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now"

4. We miss God's opportunities
-To show the world the power of god. Waiting is a chance to bring glory to his name

Exodus 14:13-14 "And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom
ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.The LORD
shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace"

Wonderful post sweetie :)

and thanks so so much for posting about waiting on God for anything, and the verses are wonderful too..:)
Now i have a challenge Jennifer, when you have time, come to my blog in 20-30 minutes i'll have my new post ready maybe later tonight sometime, i have 8 Youtube Videos to watch by Paul Washer..they simply have changed my life and my thinking on the Lord, on salvation, on sin and on God's righteousness.
I have a hard time expressing everything those videos taught me, but they sincerely taught me to NEVER take Jesus' sacrifice or what he bore on the cross for us FOR granted..to never take it for granted..and he is a sincere Calvinist, yet i am starting to like their thinking more and more :)
We need more Paul Washers and Nate Pfeils' in this world!! WE really do..too much of the church preach the wrong doctrine, the washed sugar coated so called gospel...He talks straight from the Word of God and from the heart..please please Jenn once you see my post, start watching those videos :))
I've watched almost all 8 of them tonight, i watched from 3-8..but i do recommend watching them all, not all in one day if you don't have time, but definitely try to watch them...They will convict you, they will help you see Christ's love and sacrifice more clearly..no more needs to be said..just know that i care for you my friend, and pls check out my blog post soon tonight!
& talk soon!!

Amen =)
I want to wait on the Lord like the Shulammite in the Song of Solomon - 'for You whom my soul loves.'
