This is the word the Lord gave to me as I pondered what He was speaking on a recent morning in His presence.
In seasons of uncertainty, or the “presumed” silence of God, we are tempted to resolve situations and circumstances that we think need tending to out of our own presumption, impatience, or other reasons. These can be issues with ministry and family, direction needed, etc.
In the “waiting room” of God, it is precisely that, the waiting room. As waiting on the Lord can be unnerving and frustrating, it actually thrusts us into a room of faith, if we choose to rest during the process. In essence, waiting is the highest level of faith as we gaze upon the “one” who holds the answer. It engages us into wonder and anticipation that His resolution can be markedly different from our earthly perception.
Consider all the uncertainties 2020-2021 has brought with the election, the vaccine, mask or no mask; when will it all end? Will church reopen and when and what will it look like? All ministries came to a grinding halt. Now what? Bewilderment and frustration came knocking at our doors. Many felt ill-prepared for the season at hand.
I am reminded of Ex. 14:74 that says, “The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent. (NASB) Is. 40:31 says, “Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they will mount up with wings like eagles.
And I love this beautiful scripture: “Now you are ready, my bride, to come with me as we climb the highest peaks together. Come with me through the archway of trust.” Song of Sol 4:8 (TPT)
