We all desire things to happen. Even more, to accomplish something. Even in an accomplishment, there’s times we must wait.
Psalms 27:14 – Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
To be able to be still, wait patiently and joyfully is one of the most greatest accomplishments of all. Because, realistically, we can not achieve this without Ruach HaKodesh; The Holy Spirit.
Psalms 46:10 – Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Our determination and desire can never be greater than our discipline. We are called to go out into the world and make disciples. Without discipline this is impossible.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 – 24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Discipline is to be humble and meek in knowing our need is to submit to Yahuah’s way and time. Discipline is to have the fear of Yahuah to not take matters in our own hands and allow him to move on our behalf. Discipline is to have the understanding of being truly loved by Yahuah.
2 Corinthians 7:1 – Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Totally dependant on Yahuah alone, waiting is a fire we all must be tried like silver in. Which, undoubtedly instills a trust like no other. A trust that no matter what is happening to us or around us, he has us completely protected and shall provide.
Proverbs 3:5-6 – 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
There’s many times we believe we know what’s best and when. Yet, we do not see all of the works going on behind the scene.
I have a dear friend that I call brother, who finds himself in jail over and over. This time his stay in jail is unseen for how long. I find myself separated from mine husband over and over. And, this time this separation is unseen for how long. Though, both of these situation seem to be not for our good, truly they are.
In our situations, we must still glorify Yahuah. And, yes this takes much waiting, discipline and the ability to see as Yahuah sees.
Psalms 32:8 – I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
My brother struggles with an addiction. Yet, where he is keeps him sober and holy. I struggle with not being able to communicate with mine husband. Yet, where I am at, keeps me pure and holy.
We must learn to see Yahuah’s protection over us and our lives, even as painstaking and unwelcomed our situation is. We are bought at a price and when we fail to be able to do what is right, Yahuah will put us in a place to help us do right, if that’s what we truly desire.
Psalm 73:26 – My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Yahuah loves us beyond anything or anyone in this world. When we have truly decided to devote ourselves to him and seek him to help us and guide us, we will then see the strength of Yahuah to sustain us to be immovable. But, it’s a decision we must make and discipline ourselves in.
1 Corinthians 15:58 – Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Is this accomplishable? Absolutely, I testify that!
Be encouraged! There’s days life is grand and days you have to rise above the disappointments, loneliness and hurt feelings, in YAHUAH’S hand 🕊️
I don’t know what situation you are in and the struggle you battle with, but I know we must do things to please Yahuah alone, not ourselves nor other people. Our decision to walk in the Spirit is not for the benefit of others, as much as that which makes us one of integrity to glorify Yahuah.
Proverbs 10:9 – He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
Proverbs 11:3 – The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
Proverbs 19:1 – Better [is] the poor that walketh in his integrity, than [he that is] perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
1 Peter 3:16 – Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
