I know you are used to waiting.
Because before we can enjoy a cup of tea, we have to wait for the kettle to boil.
And before we can eat the meal we’ve ordered, we have to wait for the chef to prepare it.
In fact, before we can move forward towards our destination, we have to wait for the driver to start the vehicle’s engine.
Nobody really likes to wait, but since it’s a part of life, we are used to doing so. However, it is how we wait, which makes the difference between maintaining our peace of mind, or giving in to impatience and a sense of frustration.
How are you when it comes to waiting for your dreams to unfold? How do you behave when you are waiting for that God-given vision to manifest?
As we move towards the midpoint of the year, where are you with the goals you set at the beginning? Are you on course? Are you way behind? Or have you not even got off the starting block?
If the latter is the case, you can still work towards something that will put a smile of satisfaction in your heart, rather than cause your spirit to droop in despair. You can still aim to achieve, to walk your pre-ordained path towards success. It’s up to you!
But perhaps you have not yet started because you believe that you’re waiting on God to do something. And maybe that is the case, but then again, perhaps God is actually waiting on you!
Sometimes, like Abraham, it is we who have to start the journey and give God something to work with, in order for us to arrive at our destination.
Then there are the scenarios where, as we saw in the examples of life above, preparation takes time.
So, are you prepared?
If success should come knocking at your door, are you really ready for it?
Have you given God the requisite time for him to hone your character, so you are not beguiled and changed by it?
If, or when you achieve your dream, will you take time to savour and celebrate it, or will you take that as your cue to start striving for even more, for bigger and better?
Now if that is what you feel tempted to do, then perhaps you should consider the following:
- Examine your motives
- Ask God to search your heart
- Be still before Him and wait for his response.
Because whatever dream you are pursuing, as a child of God, you should be purpose-driven. And that purpose should be God-determined, not society-shaped or secular world-defined.
Wishing you all a blessed and productive week ahead.
