Amazing things come to those who wait


We're doing this song at Celebration in the morning.  It's one of my favorites.

God is going to blow into the place just like He's been doing for a while now, in a fresh way.  How do I know?  Because waiting on God tends to do that.

There came a time in our church that we seriously waited on God for an extended time.

We waited.

And we waited.

When we didn't know what to do, we waited.

God will always answer when we don't know what to do and we wait.

One of my favorite scriptures is II Chronicles 20:12.  The passage talks about when Jehoshaphat was up against the Meunites who came to make war with him.  He had no idea what to do.  And here's what he said:

"O our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you.”

Sometimes I haven't known what to do.
My husband hasn't known what to do.
The church hasn't had any idea what to do.

We waited, collectively we waited -- and fixed our eyes on God.  Together we said, "we look to YOU."

He moved.  He defeated the enemy and blew in with a refreshing gust of His presence that hasn't stopped swirling since.

It was worth the wait.

What has happened in our church since June 27, 2010, and particular the past 3-4 months has been nothing short of amazing.  If I could fully describe it to you here I would, but I can't.  I love it when God does the indescribable.
