Waiting On God Isn’t Always Easy, But It’s Always Worth It

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten…”
– Joel 2:25

Man, God’s promises are so good!

I love the way Hillsong United puts it in their song, Oceans:

“You’ve never failed and You won’t start now…”

When we don’t see God’s promises fulfilled in our lives, it’s not because He dropped the ball, or failed in some way. It’s because we give up.

  • We lose patience
  • Our faith runs out
  • We settle for counterfeits
  • We believe the enemy’s lies
  • We wall off the parts of our heart that hurt, leaving us less capacity to feel and love
  • We give up the eternal for the easy
  • Like Esau, we trade away the priceless to satisfy our desires in the moment (we sell out for stew)
  • Living an easy life isn’t the point, let’s live lives that are WORTH IT! No matter how hard it is…
