WAITING FOR THINGS TO CHANGE
Taken from Word for Today

‘…I will wait, until my change comes.’ Job 14:14 nkjv

BEFORE YOU quit and give up in discouragement consider the long and difficult process by which a butterfly emerges from its cocoon. If you try to rush God’s purpose and process in your life, you’ll produce something deformed, something that can’t get off the ground and fly. Perhaps you’re thinking, ‘I can’t wait for this to be over.’ That’s understandable. Job couldn’t either. He said, ‘All the days of my hard service I will wait ’til my change comes.’ But by God’s grace he survived, and ended up with twice as much as he lost So hold on, your change is coming! God won’t give up on you, so don’t give up on Him! There’s a work going on in you right now. Something is dying that has to die, so that something better can be brought to life. Let it happen.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego told a king, ‘We will not bow down to your gods’ (Daniel 3:18). Don’t bow to temptation, or to manipulation, or to ungodly persuasion. Don’t try to keep up with! the Joneses, or surrender to selfish ambition and self-promotion. Don’t bow to the spirit o anxiousness and impatience. Continue to wall by faith and not by sight knowing that ‘…[God] is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we are able to ask or think…’ (Ephesians 3:20 KJV They say, ‘Good things come to those who wait The determining factor is Who you are waiting for. God says there’s a purpose for all these things (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Wait God will make the pieces fit together. He won’t disappoint you.
