Waiting Upon God is a Great Gain

Waiting upon the Lord for anything whatsoever (life partner, good job, business idea, fruit of the womb, financial breakthrough etc.) could turn out to be the most tedious task ever.

As believers we expectantly pray to God for one breakthrough or another and we wait patiently for Him to answer us.

He said in his word in the book of Isaiah 40:31 KJV
"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."

Delay is not denial and that you are yet to receive answers to your prayers does not mean God is deaf to hear you.He is an ever-listening God.

Of course, those who wait on the Lord may have sorrow,for a light is sown in darkness; however, joy will spring up with the day. Psalms 30:5 KJV states
"For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

Truthfully, there is a great gain in waiting for God to answer you. If you have earnestly asked Him for something,  be rest assured that He will answer you in due time.

The promise of God is in Psalms 37:9 KJV and it states
"For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord , they shall inherit the earth."

Dear brethren, I will implore you to
"Wait on the Lord : be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord."  (Psalms 27:14 KJV)
