(Based on Psalm 40:1-4)

Waiting upon god can be hard.
The temptation to go ahead and do it on your own is great.
So many times I have failed to wait and rushed in with my own good ideas only to have it all go pear shaped and then wonder why.
Rushing in and trying to seek solutions in the flesh is doomed to failure.
Only in god’s time is their true perfection, help and deliverance.
Only then can we have a truly successful outcome.
4 steps to waiting.
1) In god’s timing (vs.1) “ I wait patiently for the lord and he turned to me and heard my cry”.
This involves putting it into god’s hands and waiting him to tell you the how and when, where and why’s.
2) God’s action (vs.2) “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet upon a rock and gave me a firm place to stand”
God gives you the specific plan and instructions on how to do it.

3) Our response (vs3) “He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our god. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the lord.”
I often forget to thank god not only afterwards but before he has acted. To acknowledge him in the problem and thank him for all he will do.

4) God’s Promise (vs4) “Blessed is he who makes the lord his trust.
I have never yet had god fail me. There are always blessings in being obedient to god and waiting upon his time frame for your actions.

So from the psalmist viewpoint we can see that god desires us to be obedient to him above all else even our own thoughts, idea’s and desires.
We may have a good plan for the battle but god has the winning plan for the war.
His viewpoint encompasses the whole battle not just my position in it.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
