“The only thing harder than waiting on God is wishing that you had!” I don’t know who said it, but they sure hit the nail on the head! They say that hindsight is 20/20 and as I look back on my life, it is so easy for me to see how – so many times I cheated myself out of the big stuff of God because I could not or would not wait on Him to do His thing!
God has gifted us with amazing abilities and it is crazy what we can do in our own strength and power, but when you stop and think about how small what we can accomplish is compared to the awesome big stuff of God, then you know that you need to get out of His way and let the Creator and Sustainer work!
Take a moment today to think about what not waiting has cost you and let that serve as motivation to wait on God! Some people rush into a relationship – wait and make sure that it is the relationship that God has for you. Some people just can’t wait to jump into a new job or business venture and before you know it you are busted, broke and beat up! Some will walk right into a sin because it feels good for the moment and not even give one thought about what it is going to cost them or their family in the long run.
God has a plan! It’s God’s plan that you need to wait on! Trust Him and He will unfold His plan into your life and you will be glad that He did!
