Who likes waiting on anything on anyone? I might as well be as honest and transparent as I can be, waiting when you need answers NOW, is quite a challenge. I don’t care how full of the spirit you
“14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” One thing is certain; waiting takes courage. When you might have the means to fix the problem or meet the need yourself, your solution may not be God’s solution or direction for you. As always we manage to meddle in His affairs and try to “Help God” due to our being impatient.
Waiting also takes strength, not physical strength, but the will power to trust in the Lord. Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” All of this trusting and waiting can zap you of the strength needed to do either. At this point, perhaps surrendering to the will of God may be an option.
How do you wait? Do you sit there idle until someone knocks at the door, or until that letter shows up in the mailbox? Some people very well know, they prefer neither because of who it might be. Fear is a real thing in the life of the believer. Although the scripture has constant reminders of “Fear Not” (442 mentions in the KJV). Of all the counsel we can receive from friends, family or therapist, nothing beats heading to the word of God for yourself for direction! Seeking out your pastor or church leader is fine, it should never be a supplement for the presence of God who is just a thought away.
Here are some tips of how we can wait on the Lord, because the end result is…”He Shall Strengthen Thy Heart!”. Wait or “serve him”; how in the heck do you do that? Encourage someone else! Pray for someone else! Get together with others who are facing challenges and encourage one another in the word of God. Waiting doesn’t mean sitting by until something just “POOF!” happens.
Immerse yourself in the presence of God, buy getting into His Word, that’s your source. David said, thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalms 119:11). Dismiss yourself from your own “whoa is me’ party and realize that He will never leave you or forsake
I just wanted to get straight to the point, without a lot of apologetics,
