Waiting on God's Timing

What disqualifies us from making heaven? Did God actually write a list?

The idea of waiting on the Lord might seem like a passive exercise, but a closer study reveals that it's nothing of the sort.

Key Scriptures

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD Psalms 27:14

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • What is something you have been waiting for for what seems like a long time?

Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.

  • If it’s true God blesses those and strengthens those that wait for Him then why do we have such a hard time waiting?
  • What does it say about us if we say we believe God's promises but struggle to act on them?

Start sharing. Choose a question to create openness.

  • What have you waited on God for that He eventually provided?
  • How long did you wait? What did you learn about yourself and God in the process?

Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

“Lord, You are everything to me, help me to lay down once again all my anxieties and fears about how You are going to answer my prayers. I confess that sometimes I’m impatient and forget to trust You with my life. I choose to lay my life before You trusting that You will open the right doors and close the wrong doors. I ask these things in the matchless name of Jesus, amen.”

Once you have quieted your soul, pour out your heart to God. It’s ok to be angry, sad, disappointed or any number of emotions. He wants to listen and He wants to speak to your heart. He loves you!

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.

  • In my waiting I will; Trust God. We can wait on the Lord in eager anticipation, knowing that He is with us and in control of our lives. He will do what He has promised. He will rescue and save us. He is always working for our good, even when we don’t feel Him (Romans 8:28)
