God’s Desire: To be Hopeful as We Wait

The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.

Lamentations‬ ‭3:25-26‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Good Morning Beautiful,

Waiting is hard, and at times, it can seem like a long, drawn-out process. Waiting, however, is a process that we all must go through. It’s important to know that waiting doesn’t mean stop or standstill. God still wants you to move, but He wants you to move in trust and faith, knowing that He will bring you through.

In your season, I encourage you to remain hopeful. That is God’s desire! ( see Lamentations 3: 26). God doesn’t want us to wait grudgingly, but He wants us to have the fruit of the spirit, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians‬ ‭5:22-23‬ ‭KJV‬‬).

The process of waiting with the intent of pruning is making us whole in Christ Jesus. God is preparing you for your season of blessings. If you want proof, look at the stories of Abraham, Moses, and Jacob. Their waiting season yielded different blessings, but it teaches us some fundamental values in waiting and the cost that it bears. I’m more than sure that as they waited, they remained hopeful and true to God.

We can’t escape this season, but we can remain hopeful through it. God sees you, and He hears you. So don’t lose hope; you are not forgotten.

Digging deeper discussion questions

  1. Waiting can be hard, and it’s even harder when it feels like you are doing it alone. However, God is building a testimony within you. This morning, reflect on your waiting season and what it has been like for you. Write it down and keep to keep a record of what God has done in your life.
