The reason I seem to be harping on the subject of circumstances is that the majority of people live by them. Decisions are made according to how the day presents it’ self, moods are forced upon us when some circumstance has adversely affected a friend or spouse.
What trips us up most times comes from our belief system. It’s what we believe about a negative event that makes the difference. When adverse circumstances pop-up we instinctively start processing ways to counteract the unwanted issue without considering it may be for our good. We are quick to determine the value as contrary to my needs.
God uses situations we find ourselves in as tools to teach. That could account for all His admonitions to wait on the Lord.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
14 Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.
28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
29 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
30 Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 Yet those who a]wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will b]mount up with c]wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
He never asks us to work out our circumstances, He asks us to wait for Him to work then out for us. Hello.
