“Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. 4 And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-3, Amplified.
As we wait on God in faith, we give God room to bring His will for us to pass, no matter how long it may be. It doesn’t seem like it, but God’s timing is always better than ours. God’s plans is always better than ours. Whatever you’re waiting for, you will receive His best and it will be far better than you could have imagined or asked for.
Your faith is the substance of what you’re trusting God to do. It is what’s in your hands, and although it gets proven and tested, it is producing the mighty fruit of patience and with patience on your side, what can you not receive from the Lord? What battle can you not see victory and overcome? Count it all joy. You may not have what you desire, but you without question have the God that you will receive it from! He is working on your behalf, and your situation is working for you also.
So be encouraged right now while you are waiting on that situation to work out, that financial breakthrough, that blessing. Consider your entire experience joy. Your faith will bring about His will for you. What’s most rewarding and eternal, is your faith will bring about His will IN you. When the wait is over, you won’t lack no good thing.
Prayer: Father, I thank You during this time of waiting and I won’t back down with my faith. Develop my faith even more God. I ask for patience to continue to trust You and not listen to the enemy about the outcome. I count it all joy! I will praise You. You are working behind the screens Your will for me and I thank You for it. When this is over, I won’t lack no good thing. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
