LEARN TO WAIT ON THE LORD WHEN YOU PRAY, HEโ€™S GOT IT ALL UNDER CONTROL.ย 

Todayโ€™s Scripture: Isaiah 30:18 New International Version (NIV)

Yet theย Lordย longsย to be gracious to you;
ย ย ย ย therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
For theย Lordย is a God of justice.
ย ย ย ย Blessed are all who wait for him!

Friends, there are so many times when weโ€™re looking to God to give us confirmation that Heโ€™s hearing our prayers and then suddenly it appears like He just stepped back and turned into a spectator. In times like these I want you to remember that God [earnestly] waits for your prayers in other words [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up every time you pray, that He may have mercy on youย andย show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice and Blessed in other words (happy, fortunate and to be envied) are ALL those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expectย andย lookย andย long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!

When weโ€™re literally thinking in our head – โ€˜Hello God, have you taken the position of a spectator to see what my next move will be if I donโ€™t get the confirmation Iโ€™m looking for?โ€™ ย Just giggle your way out of those thoughts because chances areโ€ฆthatโ€™s exactly what God is doing. There are times when we donโ€™t hear from God the way we imagine and we run off in haste and build littleย gods like people and money with great anticipation that they will answer us faster than waiting on THE ONLY TRUE and LIVINGย GOD โ€ฆ thatโ€™s the biggest mistake ever!!

From personal experiences I know whenever I become easily overwhelmed and emotional itโ€™s a sign that Iโ€™m spending more time listening to my anxious thoughts instead of taking notes of what Iโ€™m hearing from God. Itโ€™s a no-brainer. The answer is obvious โ€“ Iโ€™m not hooked up to the right line โ€ฆ thereโ€™s a cross line. Faith in God means a wise person keeps themselves and their thoughts under control. Itโ€™s beyond our wildest dreams what really happens when we pray. Prayer changes our thinking and our thinking changes our view. When the views are changedโ€ฆhope increases, and miracles happen.

Last Saturday I was sitting alone on my back patio and I captured a mental picture of a child holding a helium balloon running across a wide-open field with great excitement as the balloon soared into the open heavens. What happened next was this childโ€™s greatest nightmareโ€ฆthe balloon escaped leaving only a string tied to the childโ€™s hand. The childโ€™s tears bought so much grief to my heart as I watched on in a trance. I wondered for a moment how much God loves us even when we run off with great enthusiasm doing our own stuff NEVER once thinking that the height will cause our helium balloon to expand and the balloon will pop leaving a string of tears and painful consequences.

What happens if the balloon of life pops while we are running across the field playing with our life? Who is holding our strings? God comforts us that we will comfort others. Donโ€™t get your phones lines crossed, everybody needs God and waiting is part of the process. Our tears bring so much grief to Godโ€™s hearts while Heโ€™s faithfully holding on to our strings. The Balloon of Life oftentimes pops and the excitement disappears, and you will be left in tears. But, our continued prayers will keep our anxious thoughts under control. When the balloon popsโ€ฆ God is still holding on to the string. When our views are changed, Hope increases, and Miracles happen.

Heโ€™s got the whole world in His hands. Heโ€™s got my children in His hands. Heโ€™s got your children in His hands.ย Heโ€™s got our spouses in His hands. Heโ€™s got our brothers and our sisters in His hands. Heโ€™s got the tiny little babies in His hands. Heโ€™s got our fathers and our mothers. Heโ€™s got you in His hands. Heโ€™s got everybody everywhere in His hands. Heโ€™s got the whole world in His hands.

Wait on the LORD, Heโ€™s got it all under control.ย ๐ŸŒน

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind and to set the oppressed free. Amen๐ŸŒน
