Wait on God’s Answer
We are an impatient people. When a crisis comes up and we take it to the Lord in prayer, we need to wait for His answer. For an example, we might pray to God about something then we try to figure a solution without waiting for God’s answer. My hand is up…. Guilty.
Last year while traveling, I was given a crisis back home in Texas and I was in Montana. I took it to the Lord in prayer, asking for wisdom and discernment and basically to guide me to a solution. Throughout the day, I was using my own worldly thinking of possible solutions and I was not really waiting on the Lord. I didn’t have a good solution on my own. Then I went on with my day, but it was still on my mind. Later in the evening, I had to make the phone call on my crisis. While on the phone, God gave me a solution in my mind that I had not thought about all day, which was a win-win solution for both sides. Praise God!!!! Once off the phone, I thanked God for the answering my prayer. Lesson for the day for me was “Wait on God’s Answer”. I have had this lesson several times in my life. I must be a slow learner😊
Romans 12:12 - "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer."
Psalm 27:14 - "Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."
Exodus 14:14 - "The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still."
