If You’re Waiting On God, You’ll Be Disappointed

Have you ever said, “I’m waiting on God.”? Hmm, hate to be the one to break it to ya, but if that’s ever come out of your mouth, you’re gonna be disappointed. Big time.

So, on the subject of waiting, here’s a confession: I hate worship songs that are theologically incorrect. They make me shiver. Especially the one’s that encourage you to…yep... “wait on the Lord”.


Because these worship songs give us the wrong idea about God.

For instance… There’s a ton of songs with lyrics that go something like this:

“God, I’m waiting on you.” 

“I’ll wait till you move.”

“I don’t mind waiting."

And there you sit or stand as a Christian believer… or hey, maybe you’re even face down on the floor...


Waiting some more.

Waiting to have a God-encounter.

Waiting for an epiphany.

But instead, you get disappointed that God hasn’t shown up in a real and tangible way like you thought he would.

Some people pray, "God come and be here with us.”

Seriously? You don't have to.

Remember that scripture in Hebrews 13:5 that says,

“ I will never leave you or forsake you.” ?!

Or how about Matt. 18:20 that says,

“Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them.”

If you’re praying and asking for God to show up, it’s because you are being led by your senses, not by the truth of God’s Word.

You’re looking for a manifestation rather than kicking your faith in gear and believing that He is with you whether you feel Him or not.

Don’t let your senses fake you out.

Oh my goodness, listen, if you’re waiting on God to show up…you’re going to be let down.

And here’s why.

He’s already shown up. Jesus, has already provided everything you need. If you’re not seeing it manifest yet, it’s not God who hasn’t given it - it’s just that you haven’t received it yet.

Don’t be so passive. Reach out and receive. 

Don’t sit there saying, “Well, I’m waiting on God to do something new.”

God has already provided an escape from your sins and healing for your brokenness. And bonus - he’s given you access to all the blessings in heaven.

So if you are waiting on him to move…news flash…He already did!

Ephesians 1:1-3 NLT

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.

And the Bible says we ARE seated with Christ Jesus in heavenly realms. So, hey, since you are with him already - what’s with the wait?

Now it’s your move. Move closer to Him. Instead of asking Him to whisper something in your ear, why don’t you whisper something in His?

Say: "God, I know that your Word shows me that You’ve already blessed me. I thank you for what you’ve done! I am going to focus on you and your goodness."

And guess what? As you focus on what Jesus has already provided for you - you will draw out His abundant life from within you. Yeah, it’s already in there. It was given as soon as you believed.

So if things don’t change for you - STOP waiting.

Healing, prosperity, blessings, restoration, deliverance, etc, is all yours. You just need to believe it’s yours and it will come to you.

“All things are possible for those who believe.”

If you’re in Christ - there’s no wait.

Belly up to the table and enjoy!

Here’s a way you can pray for God to manifest Himself to you:

“God, you have told me in your Word that you will never leave me or leave me behind. I’m so grateful for that. And your Word promises that when two or three gather together, you are right there with them. So, I believe this and I’m asking you to show me how to yield to you. Show me how to walk in your presence. Show me how to believe that you are near. Thank you, In Jesus Name.”
