Read stories of those from the Bible who waited on the Lord. Some people to look up include: Hannah: 1 Samuel 1:2-2:21. Sarah: Genesis 17:7 – 21:7.
DURING A Season Of Waiting
Have you been praying for something to happen in your life for so long that you feel like giving up?
You’re not alone in your waiting.
- David waited 15 years to be king.
- Moses waited 40 years to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. He fled Egypt and wasn’t called back to lead his people until he was in his 80s.
- Sarah waited 25 years for her appointed child, Isaac. So long, that she took matters into her own hands and had her husband sleep with her handmaid Hagar to give her a son.
- Rebekah waited 20 years to give birth to Jacob and Esau.
You may have heard this verse before:
John 14:13 “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
But what many of us fail to realize is that the verse doesn’t say Jesus will do what we ask right now.
None of us know God’s timing or why it seems to take soooo much longer than we’d like sometimes.
But rest in the truth that He is faithful.
