The Church Where Everybody is Somebody and Christ is Lord  


Of March 24th, 2019

Are you waiting for God to do something in your life? Waiting should not be a passive thing. When we’re waiting the correct way, we’re on the lookout. We talk like what we are believing for is going to happen. We act like it’s going to happen and we’re making preparations.

For example, when you’re expecting someone for dinner you don’t wait until the company shows up before you decide to start cooking, do you? Most of us start early in the day, making sure the house is clean, the groceries are in, and maybe you even buy some flowers for the table. Bottom line, you make such preparations because you are expecting someone.

That’s the attitude we need to have while we’re waiting for God’s promises to come to pass in our lives. We must believe and act like we know His Word is true and His promises will happen.  We must believe in Him to the extent that we are ever on the lookout, listening and preparing for when God answers our prayers: for the day when you will pass your test, make that great presentation at work, school, or church, or win that contract, etc.

While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Try waking up every morning and saying out loud, “I’ve come this far by faith and I’ve come too far to give up now”!  Then proclaim, “My due season is coming, and I will reap my harvest!” Stay in faith and look for His hand of blessing because He has promised you victory and the victory are closer than you think!
