“For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for Him.” Isaiah 14:4
When we wait, God works. When I wait, God works. The supernatural kicks in when I wait. The God factor. The out-of-this-world comes to this world. The impossibles are totally possible. The not doable becomes very doable. The deserts become springs and the wilderness starts to produce bumper crops.
The question is: Will I slow down? Will I stop?
Waiting implies just that - a suspension of any effort of my own. While waiting, will I pray? Will I tell Him my concerns so that they no longer weigh me down but are given to God to handle? In this is rest. In this is peace. In this positioning of the heart, God works and gets the glory.
Lord, help us today to walk in the miracle of resting in You and just waiting on You!
