The Blessing of Waiting

There is something about Psalm 130:5 that when I read it, my soul lingers

There has always been an anticipation of knowing what is to come (through my hope in Jesus) but the more I meditate on Scripture, the more truths are revealed to me, which then encourages me to wait further

Yet, waiting is one of the greatest heartaches we can endure – it goes against every fibre in our being, to wait, and I know for myself, I am no exception, but there is a grace that comes with waiting and trusting in God. A grace of supernatural faith to know that God will fulfil His promises at the right time

There are things that I know are about to happen in my life. Things that I have waited for, that God spoke to me over ten years ago. Yet, the danger can be to run ahead when we are on the cusp of a breakthrough, or a blessing. That fatal whisper in our ear to ”go” – yet we know that it isn’t quite the right time

Friends, waiting is a blessing, because it means that we are letting go of the natural circumstances to lean into the power of God to help us when life feels difficult

Waiting gives us time to seek God’s wisdom when times are complex

Waiting allows God to protect us under His wings, when we are walking down a slippery slope

An omniscient God can guide us in the waiting with His ability to see all things

An omnipresent God can come and ”sit” beside us as He guides us beside still waters to restore our waiting soul

Sometimes the blessing is in the waiting itself – therefore, I want to encourage us today to continue to press in to God, and stop listening to the whisper of the enemy to ”go” because so many of us have fallen through impatience

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
