If you follow Your own path you will live by your own strength. If you follow God’s path He will lead you in the way of faith and faith leads you outside of your own strength. Therefore in this space, the heart is confronted with something called TRUST.
Those who walk in the way of faith will be met with seasons and moments where their heart will need to take courage to step into the victory of what it is God has spoken as they “wait” upon the Lord for Him to move. Action is the verb part of faith that completes it as James 2:18-22 tells us. However sometime we fail to miss that “waiting on God” is action and actually can be the hardest for our flesh to do. None the less it is faith.
David spoke many times of the power of “waiting on the Lord”, for vengeance, for victory, justice, and breakthrough.
“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!”
Psalms 27:13-14 NKJV
When you wait on the Lord your heart really needs to take courage as this can be a very stretching and testing time of your faith. What you trust is being tested. You may be in transition and needing answers, direction and miracles. It’s not for lack of acknowledging the Lord in all your ways, expecting Him to direct your path, or prayer or warfare that there is this lull in the spirit.
What is going on God? I need to know the next step, what would you have me do? Silence…
Just “wait”. Wow… the amount of resolve and strength and courage it takes to wait and not let your heart be afraid. Far out!
Warriors find that kind of warfare very intense… “waiting warfare”.
But I believe this is the necessary position to overcome at the threshold. Everything is timing. And the Lord would have us wait for His command, instruction and anointing.
Wait for the Lord, be strong and let your heart take courage.
