Waiting on God
Father, how very grateful I am that these times of waiting are not in vain, but are meant for Your good purposes. Thank You for being so intimately involved in my life and for teaching me how important it is to wait on You.
Lord Jesus, I confess that when there are difficult circumstances, the pain can reach deep, the pressure can crush, and the anxiety can overwhelm me. At times I feel trapped without recourse—imprisoned, chained, and without hope.
But Father, I thank You that with You there is always hope! And even right now I express my faith that You can and will help me in the situations that are heavy on my heart. Lord, please reveal to me how You are acting on my behalf and what You desire for me to learn through this trial. Garrison me about with Your loving, powerful presence, peace, and assurance. Teach me what it means to sit expectantly before You in an attitude of directed, purposeful, active, and courageous prayer. And in all things, help me to seek Your face, obey Your commands, reflect Your character, act in faith, and have pure motives that honor You.
Thank You for this time of waiting, Father. It is difficult to say that, but I know You are working all things for my good and I will see the fulfillment of Your promises if I cling to You. To You be all the glory and praise. In Jesus’ holy and wonderful name I pray. Amen.
