There was a situation in life when I felt that I was standing amidst trembling walls. Fear of the future was gripping me. I stood still and dare not move a muscle. My mind was devising plans as to escape the consequences of these circumstances. On such a day, I came across a short video by Pastor John Piper. This message shared in the short clipping was for me.
The preacher spoke about David’s prayer mentioned in Psalms 40 as a result of untoward circumstances. He also added that quitting is never an option for a Christian. Though the misery of life might seem to engulf you, you are supposed to stand your trust on God.
Dear brothers and sisters, your family problems are known to God. The relationship crisis that you are face is evident to God. The set back in your ministry is never far from his knowledge. God knows every aspect of your life. All these situations are like falling into a pit of miry clay. When you try to ascend up from the clay all by yourself, you will be drawn deeper. This is quality of a clay pit. Hence. one has to wait for a helping hand. Similarly, these deliverance from these situations can come only from God. Self help will never help. We need to acknowledge that our situations require God’s help. When we pray, we beseech God’s help into our situations.
God expects was to wait patiently for Him to act. He will act in His perfect time. We can never prepond or postpone God’s timing. Our duty is to wait. We may never know the duration of the waiting period, for some it may be hours and for others it may be days, weeks, months, years or ever decades. So your cry from the pit has to be illustrated in the form of waiting in patience. One can enact this patience with absolute trust on God’s timing and perfect plan. The blessing or the breakthrough that you are anticipating will unfold in God’s time. So wait patiently for His plan.
Hastening budding may distort the flower. Likewise, manipulating God’s time and will can derange your entire life.
WAIT WITH PATIENCE
