Learn to Wait - by Joyce Meyer daily devotional 27 September Wednesday
But those who wait for the LORD [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; they will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.
— Isaiah 40:31 (AMP)
People often ask me, “How can I know for sure whether I'm hearing from God or just making things up?”
I believe the answer is to learn to wait. With big decisions, we often feel the need to hurry. We must do something and do it right now! But godly wisdom tells us to wait until we have a clear picture of what we are to do and when we are to do it.
We all need to develop the capacity to take a step back and view every situation from God's perspective. Only then can we make decisions the way He wants us to.
Strength is found in waiting. When you wait upon the Lord, you can sense in your spirit what the Lord actually wants you to do…not what you think He wants you to do.
When you are faced with any difficult decision, it is wise to wait until you have a clear answer before taking a step you may regret. It might feel uncomfortable and you may want to hurry, but don’t allow that pressure to take precedence over the wisdom and knowledge of God.
