Comfort in Your Waiting Place

“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3

Have you ever started out on a venture that took longer and was much harder than you anticipated? Maybe you’ve thought of quitting and writing it all off as a big mistake. You know you can’t do that, but it feels good to talk about it for a moment, right?

Perhaps you’ve been forging ahead so long you’ve forgotten what your initial goal was. That’s OK. This happens when doing something bigger than yourself.

You are in a prime place that I believe God finds irresistible. You are so dependent and vulnerable that if God does not step in, it’s all over with anyway. You’ve run out of ideas, strength, and any other resource. Good! This may mean you’ve given your all for Him and He has to take it from here. He can and He will, My Friend.

May I encourage you to find comfort in this place prickly with uncertainty? Lay your head on the stone of stuck and look toward Heaven. Rest your back in this corner you feel painted, pushed, and backed into and watch what happens next. God has set the stage for His grand entrance. (I’ve learned sometimes God doesn’t make His appearance right away. His silence allows time for rest and contemplation.) Then, at the proper time, He steps in. It looks different for each of us, but it’s always like a ray of light after a dark season; a word of hope or direction after a long silence. Before you know it, you’re back on track. You’re more certain, you’re revived and full of purpose again. If you think back, you’ll see you’ve been here before, the stakes just seem higher, but the Most High was still there! You didn’t come this far to miss out on what’s next. Each challenge is a muscle-builder against the next giant. Get rested, get realigned, and then get ready to rise to applaud the King because He IS coming! His shadow will fall on your circumstance and bring joy to your heart and glory to Himself.
