With Samuel, he relied on God for strength. When he was in trouble and didn't know what to do, he relied on God for strength. When a lion attacked him, he relied on God. "And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand..." Through the process of WAITing on God, God's spirit moved on him and handled the situation.
Job's life was a process of waiting on God. At the end of Job 42, we see that everything that was stolen from Job was restored back to him. When you WAIT on God, God will save you and bring you through your situation. At the end, God restored His goods back to Him. He started off with seven sons and three daughters and he was very rich. In verses 12-13, "So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. He had also seven sons and three daughters.". So, as we see, his blessing at the end was greater than where he started off. When you fully WAIT and trust God, He will restore to you everything that Satan has stolen from you because of your faithfulness and obedience to God and His word. When we trust and WAIT on God, we are understanding that His word will come to pass. Like Hannah said, we are not underestimating His power. When we try to take matters in our hands, we are limiting His power and God doesn't want that.
So, when you are in certain trials that don't look promising, remember that you just have to WAIT on the Lord because He will bring you through it. He will make a way out of no way for your situation. If God has given you a promise, wait on Him and let Him handle it. Don't try to take matters into your own hands because then you are not trusting God. If He said it, it shall come to pass.
One key verse to remember and not forget is Isaiah 40:31. "But 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."
Stay blessed and wait on the Lord!!! Enjoy "They That Wait" by Fred Hammond.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!!!
