Waiting on God is never easy.
I love what Andrew Murray says about waiting....
Be assured that if God waits longer than you should wish, it is only to make the blessing doubly precious.
...and that is something I am holding tight to lately as we continue to wait for God to provide a job.
My devotion from Oswald Chambers this morning was so good and I wanted to share it....
"He said, 'Take now your son..'" Genesis 22:2
God's command is, "Take now," not later. It is incredible how we debate! We know something is right, but we try to find excuses for not doing it immediately. If we are to climb to the height God reveals, it can never be done later--it must be done now. And the sacrifice must be worked through our will before we actually perform it. "so Abraham rose early in the morning...and went to the place of which God had told him" (22:3) Oh, the wonderful simplicity of Abraham! When God spoke, he did not "confer with flesh and blood". Beware when you want to "confer with flesh and blood" or even your own thoughts, insights or understandings--anything that is not based on your personal relationship with God. These are all things that compete with and hinder obedience to God. Abraham did not choose what the sacrifice would be. Always guard against self-chosen service for God. Self-sacrifice may be a decease that impairs your service. If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; or even if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him. If the providential will of God means a hard an difficult time for you, go through it. But never decide the place of your own martyrdom, as if to say, "I will only go to there, but no farther." God chose the test for Abraham, and Abraham neither delayed nor protested, but steadily obeyed. If you are not living in touch with God, it is easy to blame Him or pass judgment on Him. You must go through the trial before you have any right to pronounce a verdict, because by going through the trial you learn to know God better. God is working in us to reach His highest goals until His purpose and our purpose become one.
That is what I am trying to do.....go through this time in communion with Him. Trusting in His sovereignty and goodness.
Micah 7:7 says.. Therefore I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. I love what Andrew Murray says about that.....When we have special petitions, in connection with which we are waiting on God, our waiting must be very definitely in the confident assurance, "My God will hear me".
I know in my heart that God had a place especially for us and I just need to wait on Him and REST in that knowledge. I can't understand all that is going on right now, however, I do know that God DOES understand it and he has allowed it for a reason and a purpose...
.... and I trust Him.
