Are we waiting on God’s timing?
Or are we trying to manipulate God into doing what we want, when we want it and how we want it? The latter seems to be true. We say things like Lord we will wait on you, do whatever pleases you, it’s your will and not mine. Yet when things are unfavourable we lose faith.
Are we really trusting God’s timing? Throwing around weightless words, as if God can be fooled. He is not mocked He knows the very intent of our hearts. Think of the countless times these words parted our lips; without thoroughly thinking it through. I surrender my life completely to you Christ. What does those words really mean?
It means, trusting that He is orchestrating every single aspect of our lives, even the tiniest, minuscule detail. He is completely in control. It means, not second guessing what God is doing, but taking our hands off of the wheel. Its letting yourself go knowing He will catch you. That’s what trusting God looks like.
So can we challenge ourselves to trust God? Just let go in His secure arms. He is more than capable to take care of us, even if it the situation looks grim, still trust God. 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 paths,Proverbs 3:5,6. His perfect timing!
