*[[Isa 49:23]] AKJV* And kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers: they shall bow down to you with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.
Waiting is a painful thing but the outcome is always powerful. The challenge with many of God’s people is the discipline to wait for God. The pressure of this world and the quest to accomplish things robs us of the time to wait for God. We live in a generation where everything is running too fast, and if you don’t accomplish something in time, you are labeled a failure.
This have push countless to move before God’s timing and landed them in terrible waters. Seeing people prosper around you, marry and accomplish great things can easily make you think you have failed. But you are not failing because others are succeeding; you only fail when you miss God’s timing. We must train ourselves to wait for God. Cease to rush. Don’t hasten yourself to become anything. You are on God’s mind and calendar. He’ll make all things beautiful IN HIS TIME, and not yours.
Our opening text admonished us that even “kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers: they shall bow down to you with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.” Waiting for God cannot land you in shame. Glory to God!
Don’t fret. Don’t doubt. Don’t be moved by what’s going on around you. Learn to wait for God. Trust in His time. Believe in Him. Romans 10:11 confirms; “For the scripture said, Whoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.” You will not be put to shame. Only believe. Wait for God!
Dear God, I trust in you. Teach me to wait. Help me to stand again all odds and wait patiently for you. I hope in you. I choose to wait.
