Have you ever prayed and suggested to God all the ways he could reasonably answer your prayer? Perhaps you thought of the perfect solution and asked God to make it happen and so now you wait and wait and wait on God – wondering why He has not answered your prayer, the way you asked him to.
I’ll admit – I am in this place right now. If you’ve been there or are in this place right now too – then this video is for you. I hope it will encourage you in your waiting.
5 Verses to Remember While You Wait On God
1. God’s ways are higher than our ways.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55: 8-9
2. Our God is able to do far more than we ask or even imagine!
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
3. Give your burdens to the Lord and he will sustain you while you wait.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
4. If you are worried – pray, pray and pray some more. God wants to give you peace that guards your heart and mind, while you wait.
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
5. Do NOT give up!
9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
I hope as you watched the video and were reminded of God’s mighty power displayed through Gideon’s courage to obey God – no matter what the cost – that you will find strength to persevere in prayer.
