Music Around Campfire1_RF_RMPL-01.jpg


The Lord is a God of action.

Even when He rested on the seventh day of creation, it wasn't because He was tired and needed to recuperate. Although He deliberately made a choice to stop His creative activity, He never ceased working.

While the Lord is always controlling the universe,

He is, at the same time, intimately involved with individual lives.

God has a plan for each one of us and wants us to know what it is.

Every time we take a step of obedience, He sheds more light on our path.

But sometimes He asks us to pause awhile, and we may not know why.

We long for direction in a particular matter, but our prayers just aren't being answered, and we wonder,

Why does He delay?

When you aren't seeing any answers, it doesn't mean that God is not working (Romans 8:28).

He's still actively involved in your life, but He works in ways that are not always visible He orchestrates circumstances, changes people's hearts, and protects His children from making hasty decisions that will have disastrous consequences.

Perhaps the Lord knows you're not yet ready for the next leg of your spiritual journey. Waiting times are opportunities for growth in character, obedience, and faith. He may also need time to train you for future responsibilities and ministries.

When you intentionally choose to be still

(Psalm 46:10),

God unleashes His mighty power on your behalf.


He has planned good things for those who wait, and I believe what He has in store for your life will surpass all expectations.

When He knows you're ready to receive His blessings, they'll flow into your lap.


Lord, make me ready to respond to Your call whenever You need me. Increase my wisdom to surpass the wisdom of this world so that l can respond to Your call. Please continue molding me to be a better Christian, conforming to the image of Your Son. I pray to You, in Jesus Name. Amen.

“Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence. For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.”

Isaiah 64:1-4 (KJV)
