Waiting On The Lord
Isa 40:28 Don’t you know?
Haven’t you heard?
The Lord is the eternal God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not grow tired or weary;
and his understanding cannot be fathomed.
Isa 40:29 He’s the one who gives might to the faint,
renewing strength for the powerless.
Isa 40:30 Even boys grow tired and weary,
and young men collapse and fall,
Isa 40:31 but those who keep waiting for the Lord will renew their strength.
Then they’ll soar on wings like eagles;
they’ll run and not grow weary;
they’ll walk and not grow tired.”
One of the hardest things to do when you are going through challenging situations is to wait on Lord.
When you see your current situation, sometimes you cannot see how things are going to turn around and depending on what that situation is, the pressure can be immense.
However it is in these situations where God is saying, “Just trust me”
It is in these situations where the faith that you say you have is going to be tested.
You see God allows us to go through certain situations to set us up for where he is taking us.
When God told Abram to leave his home and go into a foreign land that he did not know, that was a test of his faith and he had others tests of faith along the way, which prepared him for the ultimate test of his faith, which was the sacrifice his son.
The interesting thing to note is that after Abraham past that test God let him know who he was, that is “Jehovah Jireh” God my Provider.
This is what God wants each one of us to know as we go through own challenges because as we understand who God really is, we will be able to take onboard scriptures like Romans 8:28
“Rom 8:28 And we know that for those who love God, that is, for those who are called according to his purpose, all things are working together for good.”
It will give us the peace to know whichever way the situation plays out, the outcome was the right one for us because God is ordering our steps.
God knows the end from the beginning, so even when our situation tries to tap into our flesh to get us anxious and depressed, God says:
Php 4:4 Keep on rejoicing in the Lord at all times. I will say it again: Keep on rejoicing!
Php 4:5 Let your gracious attitude be known to all people. The Lord is near:
Php 4:6 Never worry about anything. Instead, in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving.
Php 4:7 Then God’s peace, which goes far beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your hearts and minds in union with the Messiah Jesus.
You can only do this if you are operating from a position of faith.
The problem is many times we forget that we are in a very real spiritual war and many times we see the manifestation in the physical of a spiritual attack. However our faith reminds us that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (of this world) but spiritual to pull down strongholds. So when we recognize that, we focus less on the physical manifestation and more on the spiritual origin.
God hears our prayer the moment we pray, but there is still a waiting process that has to take place and many times, it is during that waiting where people fall down or fall short.
We need to pray that God gives us the ability to wait and in our moments of weakness, he gives us his strength.
Daniel had to wait 21 days before his answer came, but when the angel delivered to Daniel the message, the angel let him know that God heard the very moment he prayed but there were things going on in the spiritual that Daniel was not aware of that delayed his answer. (Daniel 10)
So lets never forget that waiting is part of the process of the answer and it is also character building. No matter how hard it seems, keep waiting because God is in control.
Parallel Business Principles
Building a Network Marketing business is going to take patience. That residual income is not going to be something that appears over night. You are going to go through challenging situations. People are going to join you and people are going to leave you. Each time that happens you are going to get an increase in the number of customers and an increase in core distributors that you have.
The problem with many people is, they just do not understand the process so instead of being consistent and going through the process of waiting, they quit when the situation become too challenging.
Some peoples waiting periods are longer that others, so it is very important that you do not judge the growth of your business based on the growth of somebody else’s but everyone has to go through the waiting process.
So please have the right perspective in your business and you will get the right results.
