God Is Coming, Wait For Him.
There are days we feel like we don't want to wake up. Inspite of trying to hold up our heads in the face of all our challenges. We all see such days, when our accuser challenges our Maker to our faces and makes us wonder if, like the secular world believes, we're not being deluded.
Remember that God does not change. He is the same at all times. Know for sure that God is coming. Hold on, wait for Him. It may not yet appear what He is doing, but He is doing things. He is coming.
The question is, will He meet you standing your ground when He comes? Would you have left your watch? Would you have left your place of rendezvou?
Our human temperament often betrays us when all seems bleak and lost. We forget that God is time personified. He comes right. But we worry that the flood would flush us away before God comes round to attending to us.
God is always on time. In fact, He is always with us. It is only we have not seen Him respond the way we desire. We let our mind play tricks on us and we bring to manifest that image we fear. That is why we are encouraged in Philippians 4:6 to
' be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God.'
So, we tend to want to throw in the towel. Some say, 'so to move on', 'face reality'. Whose reality? Whose report are you believing?
And where move on to? Where else can we go? We are greatly favored in this life that God found us before we were done in.
Many people are still being prevented from seeing God. And we, having been in the light, shall we regress back into darkness?
God is our confidence and trust. He has never failed anyone counting on Him yet. If anyone thinks God has ever failed him, he is not putting his experience in the proper perspective. But for God, we would all have been consumed.
God is coming, wait for Him. Though we must know that He does not pamper His people, He does not spoil His children! We who are to assess the angels, ought we not be upstanding? Let's be patient, for He is doing so much more than we can readily see.
What else would be wise to do but to wait, giving Him thanks and praises? Not in a patronising way, but in the full understanding that He has us covered, dwelling in His secret place.
You know, all things eventually work out for our good, for we are God's covenant people through the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross. They always do, if only we would hang on there, and not leave our place.
While we wait, therefore, let us begin to do whatever good our hands find to do. It is usually difficult to wait when you are not occupied with something constructive. Let us prepare for the days ahead, as the Spirit leads us, even while we are in this backstage of life. God is coming. Lets wait for Him.
