Isaiah 30:18 And therefore will Jehovah wait, that he may be gracious unto you; and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for Jehovah is a God of justice; blessed are all they that wait for him.
I need this verse today. God is waiting to be gracious to me. He has a plan for my life. He is going to work in my life and meet my needs but He is waiting on me.
He is waiting on me to realize how much I need Him. He is waiting on me to realize how much I have failed Him. He waiting on me to realize how much I do in the flesh ignoring Him.
I want so desperately to do His Work. I want Him to be pleased with me. I run around like a chicken with my head cut off. I think and plan and work and work but often in the flesh or my own power.
He is just there waiting. Waiting to be gracious. Waiting until I am ready to allow Him to work. Waiting to do the work in my life so that He will get the praise. Waiting on me!
When He gets ready to work it will be Him that gets exalted not me. Can I bear that in my prideful self? Can I take it if He does something so big and I get no credit, no appreciation, no respect?
He is gracious and kind. He is merciful. He is powerful. He is waiting.
I would be wise to wait for Him. Wait knowing that He can and will do His will. Wait knowing that He can be trusted.
I will wait. I will watch Him and believe and trust Him until He decides to move and then I will be blessed!
