Patiently Praying

Rest in the Lord

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7

Have you prayed and prayed and waited and waited, and still there is no manifestation? Are you tired of seeing nothing move? Are you just at the point of giving it all up? Perhaps you haven’t waited in the right way?

“With patience wait” (Romans 8:25). Patience takes away worry. He said He would come, and His promise is equal to His presence. Patience takes away your weeping. Why feel sad and despondent? He knows your need better than you do, and His purpose in waiting is to bring more glory out of it all. Patience takes away self~works. The work He desires is that you “believe” (John 6:29)., and when you believe, you may then know that all is well. Patiences takes away all want. Your desire for the thing you wish is perhaps stronger than your desire for the will of God to be fulfilled in its arrival.

Patience takes away all weakening. Instead of having the delaying time, a time of letting go, know that God is getting a larger supply ready and must get you ready too.

Patience takes away all wobbling. “Made me stand upon my standing” (Daniel 8:18). God’s foundations are steady, and when His patience is within, we are steady while we wait.

Patience gives worship. A praiseful patience sometimes “longsuffering with joyfulness” (Colossians 1:11) is the best part of it all. Let patience have her perfect work (James 1:4), while you wait, and you will find great enrichment.
