Waiting on God in His Love

I find myself compelled to share a revelation that has profoundly touched the core of my being and illuminated my path with divine clarity. This message, born from the depths of prayerful contemplation and fellowship with the Holy Spirit, is an earnest call to fellow seekers of Christ’s truth.

"Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes." Psalm 37:7

We are beckoned to enter a deeper realm of communion with God, where the act of waiting transcends mere passivity and becomes a vibrant testament to our unwavering trust in God’s perfect plan.

"From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him." Isaiah 64:4

In the stillness of God's presence, waiting emerges not as a void of action but as a sacred space brimming with the potential for spiritual growth and deepened faith.

"Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!" Psalm 27:14

In the quiet surrender to God’s timing, it is here that our souls are stretched, and our dependence on Him is refined.

"And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." James 1:4

This divine interval of waiting is an opportunity to cast off the illusions of control and to embrace, with open hearts, the transformative grace that shapes us into the image of Christ.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

It is a journey of discovering the profound peace that comes from resting in the assurance of God’s faithful promises and the joy of being intimately aligned with His will.

"Through these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world on account of lust." 2 Peter 1:4

To you, my treasured friends, who have shared in the joys and sorrows of my spiritual walk, I extend this insight as an offering of hope and encouragement. Let us approach this season of waiting not as a passive interlude but as an active engagement with the God who loves us beyond measure.

"And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6

Together, let us wait upon the Lord with expectant hearts, ready to be renewed by His love, reshaped by His wisdom, and redirected by His sovereign hand.

"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9

In this sacred process of waiting, may we discover the depth of our faith and the boundless expanse of God’s love for us, propelling us forward into the greater works He has destined for us.

"The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." Lamentations 3:25

God is love. We wait upon His love. We are made to receive His love. His love transforms us into His love. We abide in God’s love, and His love abides in us.

"Yet those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:31

Love is God’s work, and He works His love in and through us.

"Beloved, let’s love one another; for love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, because GOD IS LOVE By this the love of God was revealed in us, that God has sent His only Son into the world so that we may live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that HE LOVED US and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God remains in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we remain in Him and He in us, because He has given to us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him, and he in God. We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. GOD IS LOVE, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, we also are in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and yet he hates his brother or sister, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother and sister whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God must also love his brother and sister." 1 John 4:7-21

Only God can do God’s work. Only God does His work. God works; we receive. God works; we wait for God to do His work in us. We surrender and await God to do His works in and through us. We wait in love, for love, to be loved and transformed by His love.

"And we have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him."  1 John 4:16

God is confidence, our only provider.

"And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:19

We wait upon God in confident expectation.

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1

We wait upon God for everything. Our confident expectation is on GOD ALONE. We cannot look to ourselves, for we can’t not provide for ourselves. We did not give ourselves life. We received LIFE as a gift. We did not provide our creation, so we won’t be able to provide our Salvation. We wait upon God for His Salvation as He works His works of Salvation in us and through us. Our part is to SURRENDER ALL.

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." - 1 John 1:9

To place our confident expectation on God alone is to look to Jesus alone. We cast our eyes upon Jesus, and we don’t move. Grace gives us the strength, power, and might to keep our eyes upon Jesus. We look to Jesus alone, especially during times of darkness and trials.

"But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, 'God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.'" - James 4:6

We keep our eyes on Jesus and OFF our feelings, emotions, and provisions from ourselves or others. We are feeble, and others are feeble. If others provide ANYTHING for us, we receive from God through them. God is the provider, so we keep our eyes on JESUS ALONE.

"For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." -Philippians 2:13

We wait upon God for everything. We keep our eyes upon Jesus so that we do not get distracted. As we keep our focus on Jesus, we are trusting in His GOODNESS ALONE. When we humble ourselves, surrender all, and wait upon God in our confession of weakness, God will give us HIS strength, power, and might to WAIT UPON HIM. As we wait upon God, He will work His strength, power, and might in and through us. We TRUST HIS ABSOLUTE GOODNESS.

"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."  John 15:5

Trusting God is FAITH, and Faith is TRUST in God. When we trust God, we wait upon Him, and we believe with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. It is through this process we truly see our sins and weaknesses. We confess our shortcomings, transgressions, and sins, and HE IS FAITHFUL and JUST, and HE WILL CLEAN US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

"For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;"  Romans 8:29

By Grace, we wait upon the Lord. By Grace, we seek, ask, and knock. By Grace, we expect to receive from His goodness. By Grace, we receive transformation into His image. All this happens as we wait upon God, in His Presence, for His love. In His Presence, we lack no good thing–EVER.

"Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD."
Psalm 27:14

In Humility, in our weakness, we wait for His RADICAL GENEROSITY. In Humility, in our weakness, we wait upon His UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. God moves through the Humble, and He moves through our humility in weakness. When we wait upon God, Jesus works HIS HUMILITY in us and through us by Grace. In His Humility, we GLADLY confess our weakness. God gives MORE GRACE to the Humble. In Jesus' Humility, we GLADLY confess our weaknesses as we confidently expect God’s goodness to pour out from our weakness.

"My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you—" Galatians 4:19

Jesus will teach us how to wait upon the Father. Jesus was PERFECT in His waiting on God, and Jesus is our ONLY TEACHER. He GLADLY teaches us how to wait upon God as Jesus works HIS PATIENCE in and through us. He works His perfect love and perfect endurance, too. God, in all His Goodness, works in us as He wills, as we wait upon Him.

"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

We wait for His faithfulness. We wait for His Peace, Joy, and Power. As we wait in joyful expectation of receiving ALL HIS GOODNESS, we are transformed by love into His image of love. Let His LIGHT SHINE.

"For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust." 2 Peter 1:4

We wait by Grace to receive more Grace. We wait IN GRACE for MORE GRACE. We wait on a GOOD GOOD FATHER, the Father of ALL GRACE and ALL GOODNESS. We know God loves us because He is love and sent His only Son as a propitiation (full payment) for our sins. If God is love, and He loves us so and paid a huge price for us, He must love us. We can’t miss the BIGNESS OF HIS LOVE.

"But He said, 'The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.'" Luke 18:27
