Are you waiting on God for something?
Isaiah 40:31 encourages us…
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint”.
That’s good news, but what do we do while we wait?
Farmers don’t stand and watch one seed they’ve planted, waiting for it to grow. They move on planting other seeds. They don’t stand and watch them…they don’t just sit and wait…they keep on working.
That’s what God expects us to do. It’s good to trust God. It’s good to patiently wait on Him. But God expects us to still keeping working while we wait. You can’t just sit in the house waiting for the seed of faith you’ve planted to take root.
Keep working.
Keep on being a blessing to others.
Keep on sharing God’s love.
Keep on taking advantage of the little opportunities to let your light shine.
Working for God helps keep your mind off of what you are waiting on.
Working for God gives you the opportunity to be the answer to some else’s prayer while you’re waiting on your answer.
Work while you wait…because just like the farmer, if you don’t grow weary of doing good, you will reap the harvest in due season, if you don’t give up (Galatians 6:9).

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
