Waiting (pt 4)
2 Kings 6:33 (KJV) – And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him: and he said, Behold, this evil is of the Lord; what should I wait for the Lord any longer?
2 Kings 6:33b (NLT) “All this misery is from the Lord! Why should I wait for the Lord any longer?”
All good things come from the Lord (James 1:17). However, the LORD watches over us and will allow storms and conflict to effect our situation (Psalm 107:29). In these trials, we should remain in waiting.
If God can calm the seas, then he is allowing the rough seas. God can and does allow storms in our life. The purpose of these storms may be to teach us what circumstances some people are facing alone, without God.
While we are waiting on God, we can find Him in our struggles, Praise Him in our struggles, and become stronger from having struggled.
Many people stop feeding their spirit (John 6:33). They get in touch with their body and “feel spiritual”. The Bible warns us against worshipping the creature instead of the creator (Romans 1:25-27).
In our struggles, we need to read God’s Word and rely on Him to help us. We can not let our pride stop us from submitting to God. We can not do this alone or just with each other. People need the Lord.
Psalm 37:7 (KJV) – Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
