A Sure Way to Gain Access to God’s Ear

by | Jun 15, 2018 | SpiritLed Living

Waiting isn’t a curse. It’s a blessing. Patience is a gift from God. Your life would be so much more joyful if you learned how to wait with patience. King David said in Psalm 40:1-4:

I waited patiently for the Lord, and He turned to me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God; many will see it, and fear, and will trust in the Lord. Blessed is the man who places trust in the Lord.

Earlier he said: “Wait on the Lord; be strong, and may your heart be stout; wait on the Lord” (Ps. 27:14).

When you wait patiently on the Lord, you gain access to His ear. God hears the prayers of those who wait patiently for Him. When you wait on the Lord, He will come to your rescue. He will deliver you to safety. When you wait patiently on the Lord, your worship will go to a whole new level. When you wait patiently on the Lord, people will see what He has done for you. Your time of waiting will turn into a testimony, and all who witness your deliverance will come to fear and trust in the Lord. When you wait patiently on the Lord, you will be blessed, and your heart will be strengthened. Your patient waiting shows God that you trust Him with your whole life, and He rewards faith like that in big ways. Listen, you can’t tell me that waiting on God isn’t worth it.

Prepare your heart to begin to wait knowing that God is going to take care of you. Get ready to understand what it really means to trust God with your when.

As I have said before, we are all in the same boat when it comes to waiting. We all need something. We can also be in the same boat of victory, if we learn that waiting is always worth it.

If you’ve previously testified to having a struggle with waiting, my prayer for you is that your perspective on why you’re waiting will change. Don’t see the answer to your prayer as denied, believe that it’s only delayed. Delayed means that something has been released and it’s on its way, and at that perfect time—on God’s clock—you’ll be able to celebrate your answer’s arrival.

Many of us have such a hard time waiting on God because we haven’t asked Him to give us that characteristic of the fruit of the Spirit called longsuffering. Join me in prayer right now to ask God to give you this gift.

Father, I thank you for this time in my life. I pray that You would give me limitless strength to endure this waiting season. I don’t want to live without Your anointing for longsuffering. I pray that you will empower me to wait on You with a joyful heart, knowing that Your best is being prepared for me right now. Thank You for causing me to win because I choose to trust You. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Don’t get discouraged during your waiting season. God has a plan to bless you in His perfect timing. The blessing may not look the way you thought it would or come the way you expected, but it will be just what you need. Don’t quit! God has a miracle with your name on it, and it’s worth the wait.
