Wait in Anticipation and Expectation, NOT in Frustration!
Have you ever been frustrated with God? You know really frustrated, as it is defined: Feeling annoyed, especially because of inability to change or achieve something.
For me, it is that point when a situation, seems to linger on and on and on… and on… and I ask God, “So what is it that I’m not getting?” When I truly believe that I’ve covered all my bases…that I’ve tried to DO everything “right”. God says, “You really don’t get it, do you?”
Although, my Pastor tells us often, our blessings are not dependent on what we do or don’t do. If we truly have a heart to live for God, He blesses us because He loves us, like a father loves his child. But many times, we have to be reminded just how much God loves us. He would have preferred that Jesus would not have had to die, but it was necessary, so that all of us could be saved. God would also prefer that we not have to go through many of the things that happen in our lives, but our steps have been ordered! One of my favorite scriptures says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Our destiny has been predetermined. So the next time, we get frustrated with God, just remember, it’s all about His divine timing. It’s not that He doesn’t want to change our situation, it’s just not time… which means that we must WAIT!
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
No! WAITING is not our most favorite thing to do (understatement!). However, when we are certain that our situation is gonna change, but we just don’t know when, that’s called FAITH!… and we should be EXCITED!
Therefore, we should always wait in anticipation & expectation, NOT in frustration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know it’s a lot easier said, than done, but let’s keep practicing.
