Waiting on God

Do you honestly believe God is working all things out for your good and for His glory?  Are you in the middle of some circumstances where you’re having a tough time seeing God, or believing that He sees you?  Do you find yourself wondering how God can make something good out of something that feels so bad?  He may take a while, but He can and He will!

TRUSTING GOD while you wait is one of the hardest things to do because it requires relinquishing control and putting your faith in the One who can and will work all things out for your good and for His glory.

TRUSTING GOD rests in His character and not in your ability to trust.  You can trust God because He is trustworthy.  He never goes back on His Word.

TRUSTING GOD means more than everything turning out like you want it to. It means that you trust sovereign God to take care of you no matter how things turn out.

TRUSTING GOD isn’t what you do when you don’t know what to do.  It is your first response.

TRUSTING GOD means growing through your experiences as you see Him working all things in your life, both the good and the bad, for His purposes.

Jesus wants us to live by faith in Him, and so the Christian life becomes a testing and training ground in trust.  Always has and always will. Remember He is a good Father, and everything He does is good and for your good.



Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.  Proverbs 3:5-6

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  II Corinthians 4:17-18

Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.  John 20:29

Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.  John 14:1

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.  James 1:2-4

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and My burden is light.  Matthew 11:28-30

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.  Romans 8:28

  1. From the well of experience I would have to add that there is great truth in this post. When we trust God we are far weaker than we could ever imagine. Like a gentle parent He will, if we say yes to Him with our free will, lead us in paths of faith that will teach us to trust Him in all things. This is not a quick, overnight process. It takes years of waiting on, and following, Him. Is He faithful? Yes. Is He completely worthy of our trust? Yes. The only question remains, will we allow ourselves to wait for Him?

    Thank you for the post.
