Are you in a season of waiting? Are you waiting for God to show up? Are you waiting for God to work in a way you can’t? Maybe it’s healing that is needed! Maybe a relationship needs to be restored! It could be forgiveness you need help with! Finances, missed opportunities, broken hearts and sick bodies. Whatever it is that you are waiting on God for continue waiting with an expectation that He will show up in His perfect timing.
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT
Before he died, my stepdad use to drink… a lot. Alcohol seemed to consume him and it was hard to watch. I prayed all through high school for God to take his desire for alcohol away. I didn’t always feel like God was listening. However, He was. A year after I graduated high school my stepdad walked away from alcohol. I prayed for several years and thought my cry was unheard but it wasn’t. God was working in a way I could not see or even imagine. I didn’t think God would come through but He did.
This story encourages me anytime I am in a season of waiting. When I’m waiting for God to show up and I feel every prayer is unheard, I remember all those prayers for my stepdad that were finally answered.
It’s so hard to wait. The fear in the waiting can consume you if you let it. The “what if” scenarios will drive you crazy if you let them. However, as children of the most High, we can wait patiently as God works in a way we cannot see. When we trust completely in God, we know that The Best Is Yet To Come!
