A deep understanding of God’s thoughts and character will form in us when we grow in our relationship with Him. As a result we develop a greater sense of security and purpose – we know we are secure in His hand and that He always wants the best for us.
If waiting on the LORD renews our strength, then why on earth do we keep running ahead of Him? We cannot stand unanswered prayer for too long, and since we like being in control, we take matters into our own hands. Maybe we give it a religious labelling (“I’m stepping out in faith”); while really we are fed up with waiting on God and try to push Him to start moving.
Handling tough situations God's way does not leave room for human wisdom, but requires a heart fully commited to God.
