Playing the waiting game


Devotional done by essjee from stand for your





"Love is never tired of waiting."1 Corinthians 13:4


Do you feel tired and weary? You feel you have waited for so long for your breakthrough to come but it seems it never does come? Why does it take so long? God do you hear me, why why why?


I know of many people and standers feeling this way. Sometimes we just don’t see any results and the world seems to be going without you making any real impact with your prayers. But to wait on God and His timing is very important. God’s timing for your breakthrough is perfect and He knows when it will manifest into the physical realm. Many people give up when God “takes to long”.


God is so mysterious and I think we don’t even have a clue what is going on behind the scenes. He’s at work for me and you. We must be diligent in our walk with Him; for with Him time is like 1000 years and 1000 years like one day.


I have struggled with this many times, but God showed me that I must get an eternal perceptive on my situation. Our eternal salvation already starts here on earth. Take your eyes away from day and time and start to take on day at a time and living in the present and not you’re past or future.


Most of us miss life here and now because we live for the future or try to remember the past. His spirit soars me to the highest high and I choose I will not look back but keep my trust in Him because God reigns still. All the authority on heaven and earth is given to our Lord Jesus and He work through us.


Let’s see some more verses about waiting:


"So that you may not be slow in heart, but may take as your example those to whom God has given their heritage, because of their faith and their long waiting." Hebrews 6:12
“And so, as the result of patient waiting, our forefather obtained what God had promised." Hebrews 6:15

"Go on waiting calmly, my brothers, till the coming of the Lord, like the farmer waiting for the good fruit of the earth till the early and late rains have come." James 5:7

"Be as calm in your waiting; let your hearts be strong: because the coming of the Lord is near." James 5:8

"Say no hard things against one another, brothers, so that you will not be judged; see, the judge is waiting at the doors." James 5:9

"The Lord is not slow in keeping his word, as he seems to some, but he is waiting in mercy for you, not desiring the destruction of any, but that all may be turned from their evil ways." 2 Peter 3:9

"See, I am waiting at the door and giving the sign; if my voice comes to any man's ears and he makes the door open, I will come in to him, and will take food with him and he with ME." Revelation 3:20


Remember it’s not our work to bring Gods word in fulfillment but Gods, so never stop praying and believing until your breakthrough comes and it will. We serve a faithful God who loves you so much. He has given everything for us, let’s trust Him and accept His good plan for our lives and our marriages.
