Psalm 106:12-14 (AMP) 12 Then [Israel] believed His words [trusting in, relying on them]; they sang His praise. 13 But they hastily forgot His works; they did not [earnestly] wait for His plans [to develop] regarding them, 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tempted and tried to restrain God [with their insistent desires] in the desert.
Waiting on God can confuse us because we all want to see results immediately in our life. God has given us the job of praying, studying, and giving thanks that He is working in our life, and then we let God do His job, which is to control and guide our journey. No matter what we might think at the time, what God is doing in our life is always the right thing for us personally.
The more we decide to trust God instead of trying to figure things out ourselves, the more we will begin to see our lives change. When we put our trust in God we can enjoy our life while God is solving our problems. God has a plan for our life and it is a good plan. A lot of times God gives us what we want, He just doesn’t give it to us the way we want.
Proverbs 3:5-7(AMP) 5 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
