Not forcing something to happen is a great and yet hard quality to possess. It takes an enormous amount of patience, trust and faith to wait for results. Allowing the “natural” course is something I have tried to employ in many situations, understanding that interference can not only skew a result but it can lead to a completely undesirable outcome. Learning to wait for the right timing is an important character and leadership quality to develop.
What are some things you are trying to force?
What are some things God is saying to wait for?
Is there anything God seems to be waiting for?
What things are you trying to rush?
What things is God saying to slow down?
How is your faith being tested and stretched in this process?
How can waiting and being patient in this situation be beneficial?
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6
I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope. Psalm 130:5
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:31
