Be Patient and Wait on God


Bishop' inspirational word”  Week 2 Be Patient and Wait on God
Beloved,
waiting on God is an important spiritual discipline in our walk of faith. King David’s life teaches us about the value of following the Lord’s plan and the danger in moving ahead of Him.

In 1 Sam. 24:1-7 the Bible tells us that when David was a young shepherd boy, the prophet Samuel anointed him as Israel’s next king. Yet he didn’t become the ruler for many years. Waiting for the Lord to place him on the throne was made more difficult because the current king, Saul, turned against David andrepeatedly tried to take his life. Despite the opportunity to take matters into his own hands and kill his enemy,
David held back. He wouldn’t allow anyone else to attack Saul either.

He waited on God and was greatly blessed for his obedience.

King David also knew what it was like to move ahead without the Lord.

In 2 Sam. 11:1 The Bible tells us that one year David chose not to join his troops in battle, even though that was one of his duties. During the time he stayed home, he noticed Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, and he coveted her. Acting upon his desires, he conceived a child with her and then tried to cover up his sin.

That was one of the worst mistakes he made in his life.

You see instead of following the Lord’s plan and being “PATIENT” and getting blessed by the God,
he experienced divine chastisement and whole lot of heartache.

Friends,
as believers, we want to obey the Lord, but there may be situations when intense desire propels us forward without waiting for His direction.

Just like David,
we will experience the blessing of obedience or 

the heartache of disobedience.

“To God Be The Glory!!!”
