Daily Devotion - Episode 72 - The Art of Waiting on the Lord

By Devotable

The journey of Chrisitan faith is a winding road. At times, you will stand on your own two feet, and sometimes, you will stay on your knees. Of course, no one likes a trial. No one wakes up in the morning, stretches, and says, “Ah, what a beautiful day for a trial! I think I’d like to have a trial today!” But that doesn’t mean one won’t come.There is a saying that goes like this: You are either out of a storm, in a storm, or going into a storm. And I completely agree. Every Wednesday, I have intercessory prayer for others. Each week for the last three years, I post a graphic and invite those who want prayer to send me their prayer requests. I usually get over 100 requests, and some even inbox me on Facebook or Instagram. Each Wednesday, I usually pray from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. I was praying to pass, and I didn't. I was discouraged and disappointed. I kept asking God why I couldn't pass this test. I heard nothing about the test––meanwhile, God answered my prayer requests for other people. Here's what's funny: Normally, when people ask me to pray for them, they rarely come back to tell me if the prayer was answered; but during the last three months, those who requested kept reporting back to me that my prayers for them were being answered. I was so excited until I got those test results. Last Monday, I prayed with my prayer partner about the situation and said I was going to wait on God. Two hours later, I had a conversation with a former coworker that lead me to a meeting about a teaching job in a city not far from my family. I am already certified in that state. And this week, I accepted the job and will not only will I teach but the principal of the small Christian school. God provides. Lesson Learned.Read the full devotion at
