I feel as though a lot of you are in a season of waiting. You are waiting for that new job, for that new position, for that spouse, or for that new financial breakthrough.
Maybe you get upset because things are not progressing at the pace that you would like. Maybe you are depressed because you thought, that surely, this job will hire me. Or, maybe, you are just anxious because you feel stuck and do not know where to go from here. Sometimes, though, it is the wait that shows God if we are truly ready. Sometimes, you have to go through some things to reach the next destination.
You, see, you need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Anything that is worth having, is worth the effort. So, what I mean by this, is that if you had to save and save for a car, you would appreciate it more. When you know what it is like to have not, you appreciate the blessings more.
This is not the season to be rushing into new ventures and into new relationships. No, this is the season of waiting. A season of grooming, where going backward will lead you so much further than trying to rig something in your own strength.
Every attempt at a promotion or job change this year has been blocked. I had to check myself by spending time with God. It was during this time that I realized that I was trying to make moves without Him. I was trying to chase the dollar signs and the status symbol of the world, and as a result, I was not walking in alignment with Him. So, this season, I have gotten used to being uncomfortable. I have made it a habit to seek Him first thing, to seek Him before bed, and to just seek Him when I feel like I’m being attacked.
Whatever it is that you are waiting for, pray to Him and ask if it is the route that He wants you to take. Pray that if the opportunity is right for you, that those who need to like you, will. Pray that you will have peace about the situation and thank God for taking care of all of your needs regardless of what your current situation looks like.
Ask yourself and God, what is it that You want me to learn in this season? Transparency from me, God told me that I would have a ministry and be an entrepreneur. I need this season to grow in my understanding of Him, and how to let people in. Am I terrified? Yes, but I welcome the uncomfortableness, and so should you.
