Infinite Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name with thankfulness for Your presence in my life. You know me better than I know myself; You know what is best for me with perfect timing.
Nothing happens in my life or in the world apart from Your will, and You are never surprised. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11.
Forgive me for those times when I get into a rush and take situations into my own hands instead of trusting in what You say in Isaiah 40:31. “But those who wait on 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.” Make clear to me the times when You use waiting to have me grow in my relationship with You.
Thank you that waiting is not a form of dislike or punishment. Direct me to use my times of waiting to be quiet and go to the Scriptures to learn what You are trying to tell me. “Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10.
I ask You to teach me how to fully trust in Your advice in Psalm 27:14. “Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD!”
I bring these requests in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
