The eyes of all look expectantly to You, And You give them their food in due season.” NKJV

 

FRUIT & FIBRE – Patience #5

            Today we will reveal 5 ways in learning how to wait on God.

  1. We Wait Actively. –

In other words, we continue to do what God has asked us to do. What ever you are doing presently is what God wants you to do until He intervenes or tells you to do something different. It is probably not a good idea to quit your job until God has led you to another one. Most of the time, God is not going to say, “Do nothing, shut down your life until further notice”  – God doesn’t steer parked cars.

Most of the time, if a course change is needed or required, God helps us change course while in motion.

  1. We Wait Patiently.

Ps 37:7Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;” NKJV

            We must be willing to endure until he works things out. When we learn to rest in the Lord, it becomes so much easier to wait patiently for Him.

  1. We Wait Silently.

Ps 62:1Truly my soul silently waits for God.” NKJV

            This speaks of an utter confidence in the will of God being done in your life. It reflects a soul that is at peace with Gods agenda in your life.

  1. We Wait Expectantly.

Ps 145:15The eyes of all look expectantly to You, And You give them their food in due season.” NKJV

            When we wait expectantly to the Lord we are in essence, taking this time to sharpen our discernment and we learn to look for evidences of Gods working.

            This is a great place to be emotionally and spiritually. You use the waiting time that God is taking you through to look with anticipation of what He is going to do.

  1. We Wait Confidently.

Ps 130:5I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope.” NKJV

            This means that we can be courageous in the face of life’s issues because we have our faith and our heart fixed on the Word of God. The bible is Gods sure foundation. It is our anchor in the storms of life.

            Waiting confidently doesn’t mean the absence of fear, it simply means that we have a calmness and stability in the midst of the storm.

            Remember Jesus’ words when He spoke to the wind and the sea, “peace be still”. God still speaks that into your life. Wait confidently on the Lord. He has all things under control.

The Spiritual fruit of Patience is best spelled out in the discipline of WAITING.

So, here we have it. The Spiritual Fruit of Patience. As I conclude let me put it this way

Fruit (The what) is Patience

Fibre (the So What) is learning to wait.
