“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalm 27:14

How can we be courageous in waiting?

Relinquishing our control can be such a struggle because it is human nature to desire immediate action and instant gratification. It is an arduous responsibility to abandon our dreams, our desires and our plans to God. When we control our day, we can anticipate a general outcome. But, when we allow God to control our day, He does what He wants when He wants. Scary, isn’t it? This is where a courageous heart is necessary.

God does not require us to comprehend the elaborate details; He expects us to abandon our control, follow His guidance, obey His voice, and be confident in His plan.

Waiting on God is proof of trust because our flesh reacts to waiting.

What is God asking from you today? Are you questioning the process and uncertain of the end result? God is imploring you to be courageous by waiting on Him.  You have an assurance today; God will strengthen your heart. You will never encounter regret when you step out in faith to follow God’s plan for your life and you will never be disappointed when you trust Him with the details of your life.

Prayer: Sometimes it is so difficult for me to be patient and to relinquish control to You, Lord, but I pray that You will help me to wait on You. You see my weaknesses and I desire Your strength to permeate every area of my life. I love you, Lord. Today, I will be courageous and wait on You!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3, KJV. Do you know those nights? The kind of night when tears hit your pillow as life overwhelms you or the nights you toss back and forth. Sometimes, we miss…

And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all” (Mark 9:35, NKJV). The twelve disciples of Jesus were a mix of backgrounds and personalities. Under other circumstances, it’s quite possible some of…

“And he said to them all, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23). When reading the Bible, it is sometimes easy to skim right over a key phrase. It’s so familiar, we just hurry on…

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet” (Matthew 5:13). There are so many kinds of salt — iodized, sea, pink…
