I hate to wait.
Especially when I’m looking forward to something… like my flight leaving on time. But it’s often while we’re waiting that God gets our attention and gives us our next assignment.
This week, let’s play a quick game of Uno as we learn four faith strategies to help us while we’re waiting.
3 Questions and 4 Faith Strategies:
1. On a scale of 1-10 (one being a little, ten being a lot) how much do you hate to wait? Explain why you chose that number.
2. What are you currently waiting for?
3. Why do you think God makes us wait instead of snapping His fingers and working immediately?
Here are faith strategies to help you while you WAIT for a breakthrough or better times.
W – WORD OF GOD – Search the concordance in the back of your Bible. Look up a word that describes a challenge you’re facing or something you need. For example, you could look up anxiety, stress, love, or hope.
A – ASK GOD – Pray specific prayers to God. This will cause you to clearly communicate your needs and heart’s desire. Then when you’re prayers are answered, you’ll know who to thank.
I – INVITE GOD IN – Every day brings new challenges. Your faith will grow when you invite God into your problem solving and decision making.
T – TRUST – Jesus taught, “Do not let your hearts be troubled, trust in God, Trust also in me.” ( John 14:1) Trust is relying on someone and placing your confidence in them.
Every day at 3PM, I encourage you to thank God for at least one blessing in your life then repeat, “JESUS, I TRUST YOU.”
