KH AOG 3 Holding Patterns
What to Do, During A Holding Pattern
A HOLDING PATTERN OF LIFE is a season of life in which a person is forced to interrupt his very busy schedule and do nothing. It is a season of learning where he is not “ A Happy Camper”. Nevertheless he is forced toreflect and evaluate his life and if he knows Jesus his relationship with his Creator. Many people receive Jesus during this season. Life is fraught with uncertainties and disappointments such as the Loss of SOMETHING or SOMEONE. Here are two persons who loss something and still ended up praising God. These are the conclusions of Job and Habakkuk during their holding patterns. Job 1:21-22 (KJV) 21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. 22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
Hab. 3:17-19 (KJV) 17 Although
18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. 19 The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.
A HOLDING PATTERN OF LIFE
A holding pattern in life may be as serious as chronic or terminal sickness or minor as change in job. You have two choices in life you can murmur, complain or argue in your head, get angry take it out on the cat or dog, or worse yet take it out on your family Or you can give thanks and ask God what is happening. Although people do not like to think about it God does discipline us(chastens) He sends reproofs of life our way.
Sometimes in life we are asked to circle(wait) at the airport of life until we get the clearance in the control tower from our Savior before we can land and proceed with our life. What do we do while we are circling in a holding pattern is important. BE STILL, and know that i am God: i will be exalted among the heathen, i will be exalted in the earth. PSALM 46:10 KJV
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 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. Isaiah 40:28-31(KJV
