WAITING ON GOD OR WANDER ABOUT (A must read)
Exodus 32:23, “For they said to me, ‘Make us gods that shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’”
When you can no longer wait on God, it means you are set to go astray. In every area of our lives, it’s of necessity to wait on God until He comes to meet us. There is no other alternative for waiting on the Lord except to go astray. The moment you think God is delaying or getting late to answer your prayer, the devil will bring his alternative to lead you astray.
This happened to the children of Israel in the wilderness, when Moses went to the mountain to receive instructions from God for them, when they could no longer wait for Moses, they made an idol for themselves, and they paid dearly for it. It happened to King Saul likewise. When Samuel made an appointment with him, he waited, and waited, “Then he waited seven days, according to the time set by Samuel. But Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him.” 1 Samuel 13:8.
And so when it seemed Samuel was getting too late to come, at the very last minutes, he went astray, “So Saul said, “Bring a burnt offering and peace offerings here to me.” And he offered the burnt offering. 10 Now it happened, as soon as he had finished presenting the burnt offering, that Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might greet him.” 1 Samuel 13:9, 10.
He had been waiting for period of time, but at the last minute, he ran out of patience to wait and because of that he lost the kingdom “And Samuel said to Saul, “You have done foolishly. You have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you. For now the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14 But now your kingdom shall not continue.” 1 Samuel 13:13, 14.
When it gets too hard for you to wait on God, it means the time is getting very close for your long awaited blessing to come through, and for you God’s visitation; but at that very moment, Satan will put more pressure on you to go astray so as to miss all your multiplied blessings, and then sin against God. At the very point when the long awaited blessing is almost getting to you, Satan will raise people, friends, family and strangers to push you astray; Satan will make situation tougher as if you can no longer bear it. But if you rest on God, if you go back to Him, and tell Him to renew your strength, then He will see you through.
Many people are promised blessings by God, but only few who endured till the end eventually get the blessings. Do you wonder why we hear lots of great promises of God but very few fulfillment, even among the children of God? It is not because God is unfaithful, but it is just because people cannot faithfully wait on God till their change comes. Do you also wonder why only very few people enjoy their marriages? It is because of impatience to wait on God for the right partners from God. Do you wonder why this generation lacks many Isaac and Samuel? It is because our married brethren cannot wait on God to have their children, and so they go astray.
When we are tired or discouraged of waiting on God, and we allow the alternative of Satan to lead us astray, it will only land us in sin and severe lost of God’s blessings, God’s promises, and lost of our soul in eternal doom.
Beloved, what have you been waiting on God for? Are you tired or discouraged or you are considering the sinful and worldly suggestions from people or from your mind? Will you allow Satan to lead you astray after all your waiting? Are you going to become another King Saul of this generation or you are going to wait on God like Job and David? Please, do not allow Satan to discourage you as if God has forgotten you. God is working for your best, and He makes everything beautiful in its time, and you know that God is never late, and His time is the best, yes you know that before, don’t you? Do you know that he that laughs last laughs best? If you wait on God, you will win at last and great will be the celebration of your victory and blessings. Be strong!
“If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, Till my change comes.” Job 14:14
“Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!” Psalm 27:14
“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.” Psalm 37:7
