What are you waiting on the Lord to finally do?

What are you waiting on the Lord to “finally” do?

Some of you have major cares, healings for loved ones, children to turn to God, and marriages to be restored that you are waiting on God to ‘finally’ act in. Some of us have less serious cares, but long with the same passion.

We find it so hard to wait, and when it finally comes, we say, “finally, I had almost lost hope.” Have you ever thought that Jesus is feeling some of the same feelings? He is up in heaven looking at us, trying to live in a world that is getting darker by the day. Watching us struggle with choices that in times past did not even exist. The difference between Jesus and us is he is not giving up hope! He knows God will finish what he started!

Jesus is to be our example in all things. He has a big ‘finally’ coming up, the day He comes back in glory and power! Not only will he say ‘finally’ all of earth will breathe a sigh and say ‘finally’. But in the mean time, we must be about His business and wait through the hardship knowing God promises that there will be a ‘finally’.

Lord, help us to remember your example, not to get lost in the waiting, but to be working as we wait. Gently remind us at how you are in the same boat as us…waiting to come back and set all the wrongs to rights. And it is through this process that we grow closer to you. Amen

Hmmm! This reminds me of Luke 12:38-40. 'It will be good for those sevants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.' Excellent article, one that will surely make us all sit up and think about what we are DOING for the Lord...and ...are we ready?

Amen, that we should be found working for Him, and through Him, and not sleeping. :)

Good stuff, Jenny. I could totally identify with waiting on the Lord to Finally move in a certain area. But what a glorious Finally when He appears once more to take His people home. Amen. ~Mary

There are so many great perspectives from which to view 'finally.' Thanks for helping us see another! ~ Violet
