FAITH CAPSULE: God will wait to act for those who wait before Him.
Exodus 33, Psalm 33
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS TO WAIT ON GOD FOR HIS ACT
Righteousness is doing right before God.
Are you doing right before God?
When you are doing right according to God’s word as a required condition to wait on God, you will experience from God’s action.
Doing right before God is the evidence of having fear for God. Acts 10:35 confirms, “But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him”
Are you waiting on God to act on your behalf?
Waiting on God comes with having fear for God.
God will act for those who fear Him to be doing right before Him with the expectation to experience from God’s act. Psalm 33:18-22 speaks about God’s act for those who wait before Him, “Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You.” Do the verses above speak to you?
The blessing and condition to receive the blessing of God are in the word of God.
Be righteous before God to experience God’s act in His word.
REMEMBRING GOD’S WAYS IS TO WAIT ON GOD FOR HIS ACT
Moses’ testimonies of his journey of life are the evidence for why he continually waits on God to experience acts of God.
Documentation of Moses in his journey points out that Moses knows God to wait for direction not to be a failure. Exodus 33:12-14 records: “Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people.’ But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.’ 13 Now, therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people. And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” God’s way is His word, and His word is His presence. With no doubt, one waiting on God will experience God’s presence to act for one that waits on Him.
Moses, in his leadership of the Israelites to the Promised Land, he was waiting on God, while the Israelites experienced the acts of God in their journey to the Promised Land. Psalm 103:7 testifies for all to know the need of knowing God for waiting on Him as stated, “He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.”
Remembering God’s way is the direction to arrive at God’s divine assignment.
God will wait to act for those who wait before Him.
Wait before God to act for you by rejoicing, doing right and remembering His ways.
Prayer for today: Ask from God for you doing right before Him.
