God works within His own timeframe.
Let’s face it, waiting on God is hard. We find ourselves praying and waiting to see what happens. Most of the time we hope that God will answer as quickly as possible. Our minds tend to think that because God is all-powerful; He will get working on our requests right away. We start off full of faith that God will work whenever we want Him to work. Here is where the problem hides, God is not like us; He is eternal. There is no time in God’s realm and even though He understands the way we see time, He looks at it differently compared to us. We really need to understand this whenever we pray, not to lose hope; but rather to not lose faith if God’s timing takes longer than we planned. Most of the time it will take longer, however, other times it won’t even take as much time as we thought it would. So, how do we cope with this? What do we do in order to remain strong while waiting on God? God has just the promise for you:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
– Isaiah 40:31.
God knows that waiting on Him is not easy, but He makes a promise to those who choose to wait on the Lord. He will renew their strength by making them soar over all the obstacles that stand in their way, so they will never have to worry about growing weary at all. This is God’s promise to you if you choose to trust His timing, not yours. How do you remain strong while waiting on God? All you have to do is have faith in Him and be willing to understand that God’s timing is not yours and His time is always perfect, even when you seem to be running out of time. His promise is to make you strong while you wait and He will do just that. Don’t worry about taking the situation in your hands, all you have to do is wait. God’s answer will come at the right time because He knows best.
