RYSE Forum - Lets be REAL
Friday, September 30 2016
One thing I have learnt in my relationship with God is when I have prayed and prayed over a long period of time for something, and I don't get an answer. Be it a 'Yes' or 'No' or a result. Then I know God wants me to wait.
The waiting stage is tough. It's absolutely hard. One minute I'm thinking, has God forgotten about me, the next minute I'm telling God, God I trust you. Another minute I'm thinking, is He going to come through for me or has He forgotten about me.
To wait is literally letting go and letting God. To wait is giving up what 'WE' know how to do and to let God do what 'HE' will do. The waiting stage can put us in a weak place. It certainly puts me there.
Thank God for this scripture. Have you ever found yourself in a place where you can't pray?
While He does that the word also says “those that waits upon the Lord He shall renew their strength”.
I got to realise that if I just whispered to the Holy Spirit and asked him to intercede for me and on my behalf my strength will be renewed. Then I can trust God again rather than doubt Him. I am waiting on God but my strength is being renewed everyday.
The waiting stage is the trusting stage. Do you trust God enough to wait on Him?
Are you in a place where you can't pray?
Let go and let God!
