When to Wait and when to Go By Brenda Drake

            I am a little rash and have been known to rush out and do something I thought was right to later find out it was a right thing done at a wrong time.  There is indeed a time to wait and a time to go.  I am learning, when I am asked to wait, to trust God to show me what I need to do until I need to step out in faith. We are in a battle in our world, in our country, in our families, and we need to put on the armor God has given us, listen for the battle cry with the Word as our sword, get ready, get set and then in Jesus name GO!

When to Wait and When to Go

There are times when you are urged to go; to step out in faith.
And then there are times when you are instructed to wait.
When you wait on the Lord you are empowered to do,
All that He asks of you
In the waiting time the heart is prepared,
Endowed with new strength to the good news share.
In the waiting-time the heart and mind may perceive,
The battle-plan of your commander-and-chief.
As you learn who you are in Christ,
And who He is in your life,
In the waiting time He is built strong within.
Then when you move ahead you successfully represent Him.
In the time you wait His light shines bright,
You receive His anointing to do what is right.
As you grow stronger in the Word the time you wait,
Become less as you step out in faith.
Step out into the water; touch the world in Jesus’ name.
Do as He has done, salvation’s good news proclaim.
Be careful to not become weary in your toil;
Come and rest in His presence for His anointing oil.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.

Ephesians 6:10-17
Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. Stand, therefore,
with truth like a belt around your waist,
righteousness like armor on your chest,
and your feet sandaled with readiness
for the gospel of peace. In every situation take the shield of faith,
and with it you will be able to extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is God’s word.
