Waiting on God isn’t about just waiting on him for guidance or direction but waiting on him to cultivate our relationship with him. It’s out of a right relationship with God that guidance will flow. Waiting is a relational activity.
If we don’t plan to worship, we wont do it. If we don’t set aside time to sit in the presence of God, we’ll never get around to it. We’re so busy working through the issues of everyday life that we have completely forgotten how to interact with the very source of it all. This is the currency that our lives run on. Time is precious and to spend time with someone shows them how much we love them.
Waiting on God cultivates anticipation in our hearts for what God is going to do next in our lives. It’s not our job to seek God’s will. It’s our joy to seek his face. Relationship is the key to out working all that is in God’s heart for our lives both in the present and in the future.
Psalm 37:34 says, “Wait for the Lord and keep his way and he will exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.”
We don’t have to worry about our future, destiny or identity because God has got all of that covered. All of these things are simply added to us while we bask in his presence. The plans he has for us unfold in his heart. Once we ensure that we are in his presence and ready to receive them, they will surely flow to us. We may stumble at times but God holds our hand. Relationship belongs to us, but guidance is His alone.
