Women's Prayer Team - Week #24
I have been so encouraged recently about how faithful the Lord is during the trials of life. I was reading through my devotions over the past few weeks and two common words have been "wait" and "patience". These two words are not easy to learn and implement in our daily lives but are so key to living a Christ-centered life.
I hope that you feel encouraged by reading these verses!
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find.
knock, and it will be opened to you."
“Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart.
Wait, I say, on the Lord!"
“Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass."
Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.”
Prayer Tip # 24 – Pray for Patience and Waiting on God's Timing.
After reading these verses, I feel a sense of comfort during this season of my life. I have been in a season of waiting on God’s timing. Often, it’s difficult to be patient when you don’t want to wait in the first place. I have clung to these verses because He says that when we knock the door will be opened. He is the one who gives us strength in the waiting. If we trust in Him and continually follow His ways, then He will give us the desires of our heart.
Sometimes, I often wonder “Why”, why am I in this season of waiting. I then think about how He allows circumstances to happen so that we trust Him more. He does this so that we rely on Him despite our circumstances. He is still faithful in the waiting. It's better to be patient waiting on Him then doing it in our own strength.
I hope that this is a source of encouragement for you today! If you are in a difficult season, you are not alone. God is always with us and is always good!
