FAITH CAPSULE: Without fear, waiting on God is an avenue to come out of low places to high places.
The weapon of the enemy to drown any man to claim victory over shame and discouragement is fear for the enemy.
The promise of God for all man to be victorious over shame is to stand and not fall for fear of the enemy. The word of God buttressed in Isaiah 54:4, “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.”
If a man truly waits on God by not looking outside of God without any iota doubt shame shall not have a place in man’s life. The psalmist buttressed, “Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.” (Psalm 25:3) Waiting on God leads to the right direction where expectation yields to manifestation. Waiting on Lord demands boldness and character which is a winning combination in the race of life.
The Bible makes us realize that waiting extends to looking up to God for intervention against wicked ones. Are you one that is constantly questioning how the wicked ones are excelling? Psalm 37:7 stated, “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.” Waiting on God is keeping His word and not fret in the face of any wickedness. Waiting on God is keeping hope in Him as Great Defender. Does it seem like your waiting is taking forever without an answer? Is your crying wearing you out? Listen to the testimony of Psalmist, “I am weary with my crying; My throat is dry; My eyes fail while I wait for my God.” (Psalm 69:3) God has never failed and He shall not fail concerning your waiting on Him. Waiting is not a sign of weakness, keep on waiting. Wait on God silently and patiently.
David testified in Psalm 40: 1-2, “I waited patiently for the LORD; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth- praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the LORD.” Waiting for God will grant the grace to walk firmly on any ground and not fall. Passing through the trial of waiting will no doubt put a new song in the mouth of one that knows to wait. David stated in his testimony, “He makes my feet like the feet of the deer and sets me on my high places.”(2 Samuel 22:34) Waiting on God took David to his high places. Every man has a low place in the journey of life, but waiting on God is an avenue to come out of low places to high places, a place that is above and beyond every painful situation that keeps a man down.
Prayer for today: Ask God for the strength of waiting on Him with no fear.
