I have this app on my phone that randomly shows up bible verses every morning. It is the first thing that I see the moment I check my phone after waking up.
Today, this is the verse that God wants me to ponder on.
“Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. (Psalm 37:7)
This is so relevant because a lot of us are always asking God to do the things that we want Him to do without respecting His perfect timing. Most of the time we demand Him to do this, to give us that, at the very moment.
The said verse teaches us to wait on the Lord.
His timing is perfect. His ways are just. He is sovereign over all.
You might be praying for Him to bless you with a new job. You might be a mother waiting for Him to bless you with a baby in your womb. Or you might be that farmer waiting for God to provide light rain that will nourish your ricefields.
Whatever it is that you are praying for, whatever or whoever it is that you have been waiting for, know that God already knew these things even before you ask him. This is how great our God is!
You may think that God doesn’t listen to your cries, but the whole truth is He is actually doing all the best that He can to answer your every prayer in accordance to His will and His riches in glory.
Delays are but part of waiting. God always makes sure that He has something better placed for You. He knows what is best for you so do not worry at all. Just continue praying, hoping, and trusting Him and His promises.
“I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” (John 11:22)
In Jesus’ Name, I pray that the Father will bless your heart with insurmountable hope and peace as you wait for God’s coming abundance that’s been exclusively set for you.
