Wait On God


“So the LORD must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help.”
Isaiah 30:15—18 (NLT)

The Lord longs to be gracious to us. We see it in today’s passage. By His own choice, God created us, knowing that we would be obstinate, fickle and slow in responding to His love. He knew and yet He put himself in a place of waiting for us to come to Him so He can show us His great love and compassion. Why does He do this? Why does He wait for us to respond to Him? Because He is faithful to us. His love is not like ours. His love is eternal, unfathomable, unconditional and unfailing. So He waits. And what is so ironic, is that He waits for us to wait on Him. When we have tried everything else, when we have panicked, obsessed, returned from running away, quit our procrastination or stopped trying to do everything by ourselves, He bids us to come to Him and wait for Him to love and help us. And when we finally wait, He blesses us and meets our deepest needs. Today, quit hurrying and scurrying and come to Him. He is waiting for you to wait on Him.

Dear God, I admit that I worry and run around trying to fix things by myself. Forgive me for not trusting You. Today I come and pour my worries at Your feet. Guide me, help me, bless me I pray as I wait on You for all my needs.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
