FAITH CAPSULE: There are God’s required conditions to wait, to experience God’s act.
The word of God encourages waiting on God, “Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!” (Psalm 27:14)
Isaiah 40:10, “But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
God will act for those who wait on Him.
Are you waiting on God or you are with the desire to be waiting on God?
Isaiah 64:4 testifies to God’s act to those who wait on Him, “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.”
How are you waiting on God?
Expecting God to act for those who wait on Him comes with conditions to be diligently engaged.
Isaiah 64:5 Identifies conditions, “You meet him who rejoices and does righteousness, who remembers You in Your ways…” According to the above bible verse, rejoicing, doing righteousness, remembering God’s ways are the conditions to be engaged by one with the expectation to experience God’s act.
REJOICING IS TO WAIT ON GOD FOR HIS ACT
Rejoicing before God is not just by smiling or feeling Good but knowing to trust and hope on God for His acts while waiting on God.
Rejoicing to provoke the act of God while waiting on God is identified through scriptural verses such as:
Psalm 9:2 records, “I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to your name, O most High.”
Psalm 16:11, “In Your presence is the fullness of joy…”
Proverbs 8:30, “…I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him.” Quotations identified above testifies to the truth that with joy, man is accessible to God that acts for ones who wait on Him.
The Apostle Paul articulates on the need for rejoicing in Philippians 4:4. “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” The Apostle Paul’s call for joy is with emphasis and with a shout!
Trusting God for His attention demands joy as Psalm 33:21 testifies, “For our heart shall rejoice in Him because we have trusted in His holy name.”
With understanding about rejoicing while waiting and seeking God to experience God’s act is buttressed in Psalm 70:4 “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You…”
Rejoicing before God is a way of waiting on God to experience God’s act.
Prayer for today: Ask God for the strength of waiting on Him, for His act without fail.
