I've spent a lot of time over the years waiting for God.
I've done a lot of waiting, but I've learned that it's a lot better to be waiting for God than to be running ahead of him. It's so much better to be in His timing than my own. I've tried to rush things on my own and it never works out.
So, what do you do while you're waiting for God?
- Read the Bible.
- Pray again.
- Read the Bible.
Wait Only Upon God
My friend Candace has released a new devotional to help you with those steps of prayer and Bible reading while you're waiting for God. It's called Wait Only Upon God. It's 40 Days of Scripture, short devotions, and prayers to guide you through the waiting times.
This devotional is just beautiful. It has a format identical to Candace's first book Jesus Light of the World. That study was designed to be used for Advent but could be used any time of the year. Wait Only on God is perfect for the season of Lent, but it too can be used any time of year. I'm planning to go through it after I finish reading through the whole Bible in 100 Days.
