Message: In my waiting, God is working!

  • by

In our daily lives, we do not like to wait!

  • We will drive out of our way in traffic to keep moving instead of stopping.
  • The waiting room at a doctor’s office should be called a torture room.
  • We pay extra to get a package delivered quickly.

Waiting is of value because in my waiting, God is working!

In my waiting, God is working!

The TIME between planting the seed and harvesting the crop requires WAITING!

  • We plant seeds (prayers, giving, good deeds, and so on) and often must wait for the harvest!
  • After we plant a seed, a lot is happening underground before we see it above ground. Even more is happening before we harvest.
  • Even though not much appears to be happening, God is working in my waiting!

Time BETWEEN asking God and seeing results.

  • Psalm 27:14 Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
  • Don’t lose heart for the battle. Don’t give up.
  • Isaiah 40:31 But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
  • Wait = qavah {kaw-vaw’} = waiting with a sense of expectancy.
    “I cannot wait to see what God will do!”
  • When I am waiting on the Lord, I am allowing Him to refresh and renew me.

In my waiting, God is working!

  • People our watching to see what I will do
  • God is at work. Developing me. Working in others.

Don’t give up
