Waiting On God Is Always the Best Move

Joyce Meyer (12)

When we’re impatient and hasty with God, we can be tempted to look for quick fixes and end up making decisions that always cost us greatly in the end.

Remember the story about the Prodigal Son? He didn’t want to wait for his inheritance, so he asked his father to give it to him early. When he got his inheritance, he squandered it and got himself into a desperate situation (see Luke 15:11-24).

The good news is that his father welcomed him back with open arms. He gave him a brand-new outfit and threw him a homecoming party. But one thing we tend to miss from this story is that the son still lost his inheritance!

You know, when we make mistakes due to a hasty, impatient attitude, God will forgive us. But if we decide to be patient, trusting in God’s timing and His plan, we’ll be in a position to receive so much more.

Receiving the Peace and Joy We Need

During difficult times of waiting, we need to know how to receive from God. Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 KJV).

With God’s help, we can have the pleasure of waiting with a good attitude. We can do the right thing repeatedly, whether or not we get the results we want. We can watch God do a work in a marriage that’s tough to stick with. We can trust Him with a child who’s hard to manage. We can have faith in God for things that seem utterly impossible.

God’s grace doesn’t just save us. It allows us to live with peace, power and supernatural patience because no matter how things look on the surface, we know that God is faithfully at work.

Remember the law of gradual growth? All good things take time…but when our blessings finally come, we’ll look back on the hard times with a refreshing attitude of thanksgiving and praise.
