Day 20: Waiting on God

Don’t grow weary in the waiting; rest in knowing that God will show up in your situation and turn it around.

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.

Isaiah 40:28-29 NKJV

Do you ever feel like God is taking forever to answer to you, that His answer might never come? Hold fast! He hears you and will answer you in due time! God’s timing is impeccable, and He will show up in your situation when it is the right time, even when the situation looks hopeless. It’s in hopeless situations that God can work the greatest miracle because He gives hope where there is no hope! Isaiah tells us that God’s “understanding is unsearchable.” This means that we don’t know what He knows, and we don’t understand as He understands. It’s His perfect and omniscient understanding that makes it possible for Him to know when the right time is!

When you are at your weakest, God shows up with power and strength. Don’t forget that His “strength is made perfect” in your weakness. Everything that happens to us in life is for a story, a testimony. Remember that we are overcomers by “the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony.” God’s glory is what we should always display; when He shows up and brings hope and an end to a seemingly hopeless situation, give Him glory. These times of waiting on God, when it feels like you’re in the wilderness, that He can work the biggest miracles in your life. And you can turn around and tell others about God’s mighty work in your life, so that they too can experience the grace and mercy that you have! Don’t grow weary in the waiting; rest in knowing that God will show up in your situation and turn it around.

Prayer for the Day:

Lord, my flesh is weak, but Your Promise is, “They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength” (Isaiah 40:31). I am waiting on You today and asking You to fill me with new strength. Fill me with Your life force. As I seek Your face, I praise You that I will not get weary! I receive Your strength in my body and in spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Thank You, Lord. Holy Spirit, Comforter, Counselor, I need you to take control of this situation. Fill me with Your power; I worship you. Hallelujah. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
