Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”
This verse is my favorite verse. When things in life do not go as the way you planned it out to be, trust God. You will run into delays, and situations will arise to get you off course but understand that you should not go outside of God to fix the issue. When God is still, he is not silent. Just because you cannot hear him yet does not mean he is not there. God is always there. Obey God as you wait.
What is God doing as you wait? There are two things that he is doing,
1) God is doing something bigger than you
2) God is testing you in order to take you deeper
There are times in life where you get tired of waiting and you want whatever it is that you asked for right away but God wants you to be prepared in order for you to receive that blessing. God wants to take you deeper first on the inside that’s why you are running into delays. A great friend of mine has said,
“When you pursue God’s dream for your life, you’re going to run into delays. God uses those waiting periods to prepare and test you so that you can face whatever is coming in the next phase of your faith.”
See when you trust God you should not have to worry about what tomorrow holds because God knows exactly what you need. Prepare yourself as you wait, that is the key. Trust God and his timing.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”
God wants you to trust in him and wait on him. There’s nothing more overwhelming when God shows up and shows out when the time is right. He makes the impossible becomes possible. When you leave your situation in Gods hands believe that he will take care of the rest.
” Start looking at your situation through your revelation.”
When you still have God you have not lost everything.
