Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.
Waiting is an exercise of faith that demonstrates the condition of our hearts. Waiting on God is an act of faith. And faith is what separates the men from the boys.
You may be sitting around waiting for God to change your circumstances. Then you’re going to be happy, then you’re going to have a good attitude, then you’re going to give God praise. But God is waiting on you to get up on the inside. When you do your part, He’ll begin to change things and work supernaturally in your life.
Sometimes the miracle isn’t in your prayer being answered but in your faith being grown as you wait.

Jesus loved his friend Lazarus.
But when He was called to come and intervene, to exercise his power and heal his friend, Jesus did not come to his aid straight away. In fact, He deliberately delayed his visit and allowed Lazarus to die.
Now the miracle wrought by raising Lazarus from the dead was greater than if Jesus had healed him and prevented him from dying.
Are you experiencing a delayed answer to your prayers?
Could it be that God requires you to die to self, to self-serving expectations?
Or perhaps that delay means there is a greater miracle on the way!
And perhaps the miracle on its way will be more precious and have a deeper meaning for you when it actually does come.
In fact, like the raising of Lazarus from the dead, perhaps your miracle will have a greater impact upon others because of the delay.
Just a thought!
