The BEST Thing to Do While Waiting for Your Purpose to Manifest?

A few weeks ago a wonderful young lady posted a timeless question on my blog. It is a familiar question that I hear often. It’s the “When God when,” question.

 Have you ever asked that question? I have. I think we’ve all wrestled with this question. However, not many people talk openly about it. It’s the elephant in the room.

 We have so many questions about the manifestion of our purpose, our calling and our dreams. So many questions, so few answers. So…. What do you do when you know what your God-given purpose is, have done the “work,” and see nothing happening?

 You called all the right people, got all the right certifications and professional training. You executed the plan, then…nothing. Silence.

 You feel like you’ve exhausted every option. You are frustrated. You are tired. You are discouraged. It is during these times that doubt and fear try to creep in.

 “Did I hear God right?” we question ourselves. “Did I employ the right people, use the right strategy?”

 However, what I’ve learned, and am still learning, is that often we must simply do as Hebrews 10:35-36 implores.

 “Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” 

Pursue patience. It is NOT the response most people want, but it is the answer God gives. It almost sounds like two opposing ideas.

But most of us have to work to be patient. We live in a society that says now, now, now. We’re so used to wanting everything right now that it has become natural.

What isn’t natural for us is patiently resting in God’s word. But His word says that after we’ve done the work, the promise comes.

We hear God’s voice, follow His commands as He pushes us from our passions into our purpose and then wait on HIM to bring forth fruit.

So what do we do? We choose to not worry or stress. We patiently REST. For we know that God is faithful and as promised He will COMPLETE the work He has begun in us!
