Lamentations 3:25

Joyce Meyer gave a great devotional this morning. I usually talk about being still in God but this morning she spoke about waiting on God. I think what she said is worth reading, she said “I once sat down to do some writing on a book and sensed the Lord saying, “Take a few minutes and just wait on Me.”
I waited for a very short time and then started to make a phone call. The Lord gently said, “I didn’t tell you to make phone calls; I told you to wait on Me.” My desire to do something was not unusual; most people have a hard time being still and waiting on someone, something, or even God.

After I got quiet and waited for a period of time, the Lord began to speak to me about angels—something I certainly was not expecting. He led me to look up several Scriptures and I ended up having a mini Bible study on the power and presence of angels.

God has reasons for everything He does, and I believe He wanted me to be more aware of the angels working on my behalf—something I had not thought about for a long, long time. You may wonder how I knew with certainty that God was speaking to me and that the whole subject of angels was not something I came up with in my own mind.

The answer is that I had peace about what I heard. It felt “right” inside of me. My spirit confirmed it as a message from the Lord, and what I heard agreed with God’s Word. There have been other times I have waited on God and heard a similar voice, but knew intuitively that it was not God’s. We must know God through His Word in order to safely know when He is speaking to us and when He isn’t.”

Lamentations 3:25 “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.”

Prayer starter: Lord, thank you for being good to us who wait on you. My soul seeks for you! I pray today you teach us all to wait on you. Amen.
