ACTIVELY WAIT

In the message “God’s Perfect Will” we saw that God’s will is for us to live a life of thanksgiving and prayer, a life of contentment and peace independent of circumstances. It is also “God’s will that you should be sanctified {set apart, made holy}; that you should avoid sexual immorality” (1 Thessalonians 4:3). These are general aspects of God’s will, given to every one of His Children. His specific direction will come as we obediently align our life with His general will…and wait.

We live in a generation where waiting is viewed as a waste of time, but learning to wait is one way we grow: “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31 KJV).

This is a powerful and encouraging passage: if we wait on the Lord, we will be strengthened, soar like the eagles, and not grow weary. But what does it really mean to wait? We are not called to “take up the cross of Salvation” so we can then live our lives sitting on the couch. Rather, as believers in Jesus Christ, we have been invited to a wonderful lifetime journey – a journey which is sometimes difficult, but one always filled with adventure and purpose.
