Waiting for Jesus

What does it really mean to wait for Jesus? I mean wait for Jesus! There is divine enablement and power in waiting. Remember Jesus waited in hell for three days and God delivered Him. Elijah waited for God in prayer and we know the result:

“Seven times Elijah told him to go and look.  Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea. “Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’” And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel.” 1Kings 18:43-45

He waited for God to answer his prayers to rain on a dry and arid land. (Israel) God heard from heaven and sent a major rainstorm to refresh the land. We are told in Isaiah 30:18 that blessed are those who wait for the Lord. There is blessing in waiting for Jesus to act on our behalf. It may seem like at times that the Lord isn’t doing anything for us. This couldn’t be further from the truth because when we are waiting upon the Lord. During these times God is working supernaturally on our behalf. Psalm 46:10 exhorts us: He says, “Be still, and know that I am God… We need to take the time to be still and know that He is God. God will show Himself God in our times of waiting.

We will see sides of God in our waiting times that we wouldn’t otherwise experience. We will find ourselves in life circumstances where the only thing we can do is wait for God. Circumstances that only He can deliver us from because only His power can give us the victory. Circumstances that only God in His wisdom can prevail for us in. Times where in the human realm there is no possible answer. These are the times we are still and know He is God.

Are you waiting on God for an answer?
