  4. Wait Patiently

Waiting on God isn’t wasting your time because He is always at work.

Job 42:1-3 NIV

Then Job replied to the Lord: “I know that you can do all things;no purpose of yours can be thwarted. You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’Surely I spoke of things I did not understand,things too wonderful for me to know.

Learning to Wait Patiently - Action Point #1

Keep making plans but hold them loosely.

Proverbs 16:9 NLT

We can make our plans,but the Lord determines our steps.

Learning to Wait Patiently - Action Point #2

Confront your own impatience. Our impatience often reveals something deeper, because "worry brings hurry" and "panic breeds impatience."

Learning to Wait Patiently - Action Point #3

Be informed not obsessed by the news.

Learning to Wait Patiently - Action Point #4

Feed Your Worship.
