Are you praying and, patiently waiting, on, God, to answer your prayers? Be aware of why you want this thing. Sometimes we are not ready to receive that what which we ask for and that is why the, almighty God, does not answer our, prayers, when we ask.
Patiently waiting? Be careful what you wish for.
It is important to understand or become conscious of why you want the things or certain people to come into your life. If you are, patiently waiting, and asking, God, for a child, be conscious of why you want a child. Is it because you want someone to love you or you want something to love? A puppy can satisfy that need.
If you are, waiting patiently, on, God, for a spouse, is it because you want to share your life and be important to someone, or is it because you need help with your bills? Awareness is the key to understanding your desires.
When what you want does not show up, what do you do?
Do you become depressed and lose faith in God?
Law of Detachment and patiently waiting
In the first chapter of my book “Out Of The Snares”, I share with you my journey to adopting my twin girls. I write about where the desire originated from. I share how I responded to the resistance offered up by the Universe and people at the Department of Children’s and Families. I share with you how the Laws of Detachment worked for me.
The, Law of Detachment, works with, faith. Faith, that God will grant you the desires of your heart, so you give this desire to, God, and you let him work out the details. Detachment, helps you to patiently wait for God. You are not detaching from the outcome; but from the journey. You are saying to yourself, I am patiently waiting, on God. I have , faith, that I will have the desires of my heart. I will become a mother. If I don’t birth a child, God, will send me an adopted child. That is, detachment, from the journey. You don’t care about the path that, God, uses to grant you your desire, only that in the end, you have a child.
If a desire comes from your true self
It has within it the power to manifest.
For example: let’s say that you are going on a road trip to Florida from California. Your GPS navigational system can take you, the fastest way, the longest scenic way, or the cheapest way to avoid tolls. Regardless, of the route you take, you will be confident that route will take you to Florida.
In a similar way, you have to be confident in, God, that all roads will lead you to your destination. So, be prepared to, wait patiently, on God and don’t become frustrated and give up.
The trick is to detach yourself from all the craziness and petty people trying to take from you what, God, has purposed for you to have. You must also remember that, God’s time, usually does not coincide with your time, so learn to, wait patiently, and get yourself ready.
Get Yourself ready while patiently waiting on God
If you are asking, God, for a promotion, learn the skills necessary for this new job.
If you are asking, God, for a child, learn how to be the best parent ever, read parenting books.
If you are asking, God, for a spouse, learn how to have effective relationships.
If you need to lose weight, work on it. Be the best that you can be and when, God, feels you are ready, he will give you the victory, because you serve an, Almighty God, who is able to do all things.
Two things about Patiently Waiting on God
#1: Waiting on, God’s, plans requires patience and, faith.
It’s in the, patiently waiting, that our, faith, is forged in the fires of trials. In the waiting, we discover that, God’s, in charge and we’re nothing on our own.
#2: Waiting is hard, but the wait has a purpose
God is never accidental. Everything he does has a purpose.
Sometimes the wait is for, God, to align other pieces of the plan. Sometimes the wait is for, God, to align the pieces of our own heart.
