What does "WAIT" mean, it certainly has these qualities:


eager,
patient,
expectant,
confident,
resting,
trusting......


The mental picture I get is one of Standing in Active Faith, resting from fear,
and from self-reliance, confident that the Word will be fullfilled, expecting it
any moment, without getting anxious about its comming.


So often in our walks we will pray, LOOK to see IF its working, and if we don't
see the manifestaion, go right back into prayer for it again, but now we are
praying in an awareness that nothing happened, now we are following sight not
faith. This is a continuous loop that can short circuit the work of God in our
circumstances, and drain our faith and confidence in God...


Instead, lets Pray Believing we recieve, then have an "Ok, Lord, Im waiting here
Standing by Faith that you are Faithfull, and expecting your word that I just
confessed to come about, so I want to thank you that what I asked for is comming
to pass, to thank you for its manifestation". Don't LOOK to see IF it has
happened Look Expecting to see God at Work, look expecting to learn more about
God, about how he meets ALL our needs. Make it a joyfull, patient, confident,
thank filled Standing and Waiting. After all he is your ABBA father, and if you
ask according to His will, you KNOW you have what you asked, and what is His
will? His Word is His will. For no matter how many promises God has made,
in Jesus they are YES, and by us is spoken the AMEN to the Glory of God...
