Prayer Thought of the Month

August – Prayer is the waiter of what you’re waiting for.

The Word of God says it best, and honestly quite clearly when it states,

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 – King James Version

Waiting on the Lord is not easy, well, at least starting out when you become a new creature in Christ and are experiencing the life of Christianity for the first time. To be honest, it’s often hard to do even for seasoned veterans in the faith.

When you see a new car that you want or house that you desire to live in someday, waiting on God to bring it to pass, let alone, give you an answer on whether or not it is in His will for you to have said car or house, can be daunting and exhausting. To put it plainly, you will find out in the Christian community, wherever yours maybe, that waiting on the Lord is not always a Christian’s strongest suit or attribute.

Yes, it takes faith to help get you through the waiting process, but it is staying in constant communion with God through prayer, where you will find yourself being more at peace during the waiting. You will find that in waiting on God to do something miraculous in your life, prayer will serve as the conduit, waiter or go-between to your strength, sustainability and stability in God while you wait for your breakthrough or deliverance.

In other words, prayer functions as a holy waiter that brings God’s spiritual nutrition to you when waiting. God knows that waiting is hard for us because like stubborn children, we want what we want and when we want it. And, when we don’t receive what we want when we want it, we get dismayed, frustrated, angry, rebellious and even annoyed with our Heavenly Father.

Waiting on God to do something in your life without praying will cause you to doubt, lose hope and give up on the belief that He will do what you are believing in Him for. That is why it is important that you pray through the waiting, because prayer will open up the kitchen for God to feed you His supernatural peace which will surpass all or your understanding and empower you to trust Him through the process.
