Waiting on God

It can be difficult to wait on God. We may feel like He is taking too long to answer our prayers or that He is not listening at all. But we need to remember that God's timing is perfect. He knows what we need and when we need it. Sometimes, the wait is for our own good. Maybe God is teaching us patience or there are lessons to be learned along the way. Whatever the reason for the wait, we need to be prayerful and trust that God will answer in His perfect time.

“ In their hearts, humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9

It can be easy to become anxious and frustrated while waiting on God. We may feel like we are not good enough or that we don't deserve His help. Remember that God will always be there for us. He knows what we are going through and He will help us through it. So, while we are waiting on God, we should be patient and trust that He will provide for us in His perfect time.

When we are facing difficulties in our lives, it can be hard to wait on God. Here are some Psalms you can reflect on to help you get through the waiting

“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope.” Psalm 130:5

“In the day of my trouble, I shall call upon You, For You will answer me.” Psalm 86:7

“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17

“I waited patiently for the Lord, And He inclined to me, And heard my cry.” Psalm 40:1
