One of the spiritual qualities I’ve picked up in this season of prayer and fasting is patience. God is teaching me to build faith through patiently waiting in Him.
Even though waiting in faith may seem to be a passive attitude, but the actual truth is, it is a power key to obtaining God’s promises.
Even though waiting in faith may seem to be a passive attitude, but the actual truth is, it is a power key to obtaining God’s promises. In the natural, especially in the fast-paced, instant gratification culture, waiting is a no go zone. Many put their confidence and trust in their hands. They work and toil, and sometimes in rushing to get their wants and meet their needs, they ended up in an enormous mess.
In God, it is the opposite. He has everything in control, and He will surely release resources to His children in His perfect time. Even though we may not always comprehend the delays, but when we put our faith in Him, trusting that He knows what He is doing, we are at rest.
Let us understand God’s intention of allowing us to wait. In my opinion, He wants to protect us from making unnecessary mistakes which may lead to crisis. It is a father’s heart to guide his children, and in such a process, the child gets to develop wisdom and to know more about the Father.
As we wait in faith, we gradually learn wisdom.
As we wait in faith, we gradually learn wisdom. God desires us to inherit wisdom; it is His outstanding quality. Through wisdom, kings exercise dominion to rule and reign. Being the King, it is God’s will and utmost desire for us to inherit His kingdom, to appoint us as kings and priests. However, wait in faith because He needs to groom us, nurture us, mentor us, father us and eventually mature us to become the person He wills us to be.
Therefore, let us cultivate a lifestyle, a spiritual habit of waiting in faith for the Father.
