God Thinking 53 - Learning the hard lessons 10

"If God has spoken to you and said, wait, please let me encourage you to hold on, and prepare; don’t let go, but don’t jump ahead of God’s timing.  When you do jump ahead

of God’s timing, you annul His will for you, because you move your self onto His throne.  Wait until you get release from God.

Wait is a powerful and profound word, when it comes from God.  It can protect you from immeasurable pain and heartache. 

When God issues the wait command:

it’s not to keep you from some beautiful experience

it’s not to hold you back from what is rightfully yours

it’s not to slow down your progress or to discourage you

It’s to protect you from making horrific and sometimes irreversible mistakes.

God says wait to protect you, and those who wait on the LORD are never disappointed.

God says wait to prepare the path that you will travel, so that as you approach tomorrow, you will be fully prepared to accomplish the will of God in and for your life.

If you jump ahead of God’s plan, what you jump into is not sanctified by God and therefore it cannot produce its best fruit, or God ordained results.   

During your walk with God if you have heard God say wait”, and you waited - you are grateful. 

When God says “wait” and you wait, everything comes together and stays together, because God is faithful to bring it (fill in the blank) to pass, in its due time.

All the things that crush the unprepared, are building blocks for those who wait on the LORD.   The Bible says in Psalm 27:14, Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the LORD.”
