Choose to Believe During the Waiting Season


"They that WAIT upon the Lord you 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).


I believe that the hardest thing for us to do is to wait on the Lord.  I know for myself that waiting on God has probably been one of the hardest things for me to do in my Christian walk.  I have learned that His time is not my time.  I know that if we could grab a hold of the fact that God is Never Early (Premature) and He is Never Late (Delayed/Denied) with anything that He has promised us.  I know it has been hard for you to wait on God for that blessing and that need in your life.  I know you have had prophecies, visions, and discernment that it is your time and that your Harvest is near.  I am writing today to bear witness with you and confirm that Help, Miracles, Blessings, and Security is on the Way. However, you must first learn how to patiently wait on the Lord and do it with Joy and Expectation. The Wait is a Weight sometimes!  The virtue of patience brings about strength and happiness.  Learn how to wait on your appointment.  It is how you wait that determines the outcome.  What you are waiting on requires time (it is a process).  The mindset of waiting says, "God help me in my frustration and in the temptation of doubt."  God's word to you and towards you impregnates you with hope.  Do not rape your seed of expectation by planting it in doubt!  Stop trying to figure it out and allow God to work it out! 


Happiness in the Waiting Period


"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life"       (Proverbs 13:12).


The word Waiting means to remain in expectation, to be ready for use, and to remain or be in readiness.  The period of Waiting is the condition of being temporarily set aside.  When you are truly waiting on God, He will Renew your strength!  The word Renew means to make new again, to regain or restore the physical or mental vigor, to revive and to replenish.  When you wait on God, He will renew and transform you into the person you need to be in order to receive the gift, blessing, and miracle that you need.  God does not have you waiting just because He can; He already knows what you need, even before you know that you have need of something.


If you are waiting on the Lord for something, I urge you not to resent the Process because you will abort His Purpose.  The Process is a series of actions, changes, or functions bringing about a result.  If you resent the process, you will not be able to have a result.  Anytime you are in a waiting period with God, you have to discover your Purpose!  Your Purpose is what you were created and set apart to do, it is your calling!  If God has you in a waiting period then your strength is being renewed, which means God is equipping you with power because strength is power. I decree to you today the blessings over the Lord to overtake you, goodness and mercy to follow you all the days of your life. It is Already Done!! Only Believe! Remember, You are Waiting IN God and not on God!
