Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him. (Psalm 327:7)

Have you prayed and prayed, and waited and waited, and still you see no evidence of an answer?

Are you tired of seeing no movement?

Are you at the point of giving up?

Then perhaps you have not waited in the right way, which removes you from the right place- the place where the Lord can meet you.

“Wait for it patiently” (Rom.8:25).

Patience eliminates worry. The Lord said He would come, and His promise is equal to His presence.

Patience eliminates weeping.

Why feel sad and discouraged?

He knows your needs better than you do, and His purpose in waiting is to receive more glory through it.

Patience eliminates self-works. “The work of God is this: to believe” (John 6:29), and once you believe, you may know all is well.

Patience eliminates all want. Perhaps your desire to receive what you want is stronger than your desire for the will of God to be fulfilled.

Patience eliminates all weakness. Instead of thinking of waiting as being wasted time, realize that God is preparing His resources and strengthening you as well.

Patience eliminates all wobbling. “He touched me and raised me to my feet” (Dan. 8:18).

God’s foundations are steady, and when we have His patience within, we are steady while we wait.

Patience yields worship. Sometimes the beast part of praiseful waiting is experiencing “great endurance and patience. . . . Joyfully” (Col. 1:11). While you wait, “let [all these aspects of] patience have her perfect work.” (James 1:4 KJV), and you will be greatly enriched. C. H. P.

Hold steady when the fires burn,
When inner lessons come to learn,
And from this path there seems no turn—
“Let patience have her perfect work.”

  1. Amen! I completely agree with you. God is definitely building my patience at this point in my life, so your post gave me some more things to keep in mind during this period of waiting. Thank you for the encouragement =)

      HI, I am very glad that you have been blessed with this article. I also would like to assure you that there has been many times in my life where I waited so much and yet I did not receive anything. But in due season, when God sees everything fit. It will just unfold in your eyes and it will blow you away. Your heart will have no choice but to just thank God for His faithfulness. I encourage you to remain steadfast in your patience. God is not developing your character.

      May God bless you and your family.
