Wait, Courageous Heart

“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!
