What are you waiting for?


In prayer this morning I heard, “Wait on the Lord” so I sat there expecting to hear something else. After a few minutes of sitting in silence…. Nothing. I started to open mouth and continue praying and I heard, “No, Wait on the Lord”. Simultaneously, the image of a high end restaurant popped into my head. Complete with a tall, polished, lean waiter carrying a silver platter.

I got it! God was not telling me to Wait; (1. Stay where one is or delay action until a particular time) which is what I was doing.  Nor was he telling me to Wait; (2. Remain in readiness for some purpose) a definition that this walk has made me VERY familiar with. Instead this time,  he was telling me to Wait; (3. To act as a waiter or waitress, by serving)

My prayer changed I began asking, Lord what would you like? What can I do for you today?  What do you need?  My heart was so full and my focus was on pleasing Him.  All day long I was like a little love pistol, loaded and ready to ignite wherever He pointed me. I told my hubby I wanted to go outside and hug people!  I spent extra time talking to those I usually just say “Hi” and “Bye” to and the conversations were very fruitful.  God used me to encourage and uplift today.  On a day when I should have been very tired, I still feel energized.  It’s amazing.

Who knew being willing to serve could be so liberating?  Go ahead, try it what are you waiting for?

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord.  Psalm 27:14
