Isaiah 30:18 NLT
So the LORD must wait for you to come to Him so He can show you His love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for His help.
Series: The Book of Isaiah
We are half-way through the book of Isaiah. Today, we are in chapter 30 of the book.
God is speaking to the church, to us, to our hearts saying, the Lord must come to him/her to show His love, compassion, grace, mercy, providence, etc.
Let’s picture a father waiting for the child to come back home or waiting for the child to wake from sleep to communicate and lavish his love on the child. That’s what prayer is! When we begin to go to God and express our desires, heart and ourselves in the presence, we begin to depend on God.
We don’t depend on God for a blessing or a promotion. We go to God so that He can show His love and His compassion.
God does not stop loving us when we don’t go to Him but, He still waits for us to come to Him to express His love.
The verse says, ‘the LORD must wait for you’. When we know God is waiting for us, it becomes easy to pray. When we know somebody is waiting for us at church or a coffee shop it’s much easier to be there on time.
Picture God waiting for you in your prayer room each day. And then it continues saying, ‘LORD is a faithful God’. He waits even while we don’t come, irrespective of the day or time showing Himself faithful and the verse goes on by saying ‘Blessed are those who wait for His help.’
Prayer is waiting for the help of God by being dependant on Him.
May God make you a powerful instrument of dependence on Him such that, the world will see how dependant you are on God by leaning, clinging and running to Him for everything.
When we do that, He promises to lavish His love, compassion and faithfulness.
