Daily Devotional – 7/21/14 “Wait in God!”

I simply stopped by this morning to tell you this … You won’t ever find your way if you’ve yet to realize that God is the way. Don’t you know that all you have to do is wait in God? Please note, I didn’t say wait on God but I said wait in God (there is a difference). See, when you wait on God, you sit around with an idle mind until the blessings you’ve been praying for comes but when you wait in God, you still get up and find things to do because you asked with the faith that they’ll soon come. When you wait on God, it’s like you waiting on a ride so you keep peeking out the window to see if they’ve made it yet. Oh but when you wait in God, you’ll get up and start walking to meet them at the corner. When you wait on God, you allow the enemy to plant seeds of doubt in your mind because you’re sitting around worried. Oh but when you wait in God, you don’t have time to doubt because your faith and trust in the Master leaves no room for it. All you have to do is wait in God knowing that He is the only way to go.

I’ll sum this up with my interpretation of Psalm 37:1-11, “Baby, stop worrying over those who are doing wrong and please don’t be jealous of their life because it won’t last long, they’ll be cut down like grass or they’ll soon wither away. All you need to do is trust in God and do what is good so that you might live. Find joy in the Lord and He shall give you that which your heart desires. Don’t you know that if you commit yourself to God and trust in Him He will bring out your righteousness while it’s still day and His approval at noon? Child, relax and wait. Stop looking at those who are prospering because of evil. Stop being angry all the time and quit playing with the devil because those who do evil will soon be cut off (and you don’t want to be caught playing in their yard). Oh but those of us who wait upon the Lord will soon receive the earth. And before you know it, you’ll look and won’t even see the evildoers.” Wait in God!
