Waiting for God to Intervene
By Dr. Charles Stanley

Psalm 27:13-14

Are you currently waiting for the Lord to intervene in some way in your life or in the life of a loved one? One of the struggles we face as Christians is trying to understand why our heavenly Father sometimes delays over matters that are so urgent to us. Only the Lord knows all the reasons. However, there are several adjustments we can make in our attitude and mindset as we wait.

Determine your focus. In the urgency of the moment, it's easy to center our attention on the need instead of on God. We may start out waiting for the Lord but end up waiting for the answer we want. Soon we're more interested in what He can do for us than we are in Him. Sometimes God delays until we get our focus back on Him. He wants us to delight in Him, not just in what He gives us.

Release your expectations into His hands. The Lord is working on our behalf, but sometimes we cling so tightly to a desired outcome that He must wait until we open our hands and let go of our expectations. Holding onto your own assumptions about how the Lord should intervene is emotionally exhausting. But peace awaits those who trust that He will do what is in our best interests--in every situation we encounter.

We need to remember that while we are waiting, God is working. He sees the entire picture and is active behind the scenes, arranging everything according to His will. But perhaps His most important work is the deepening of our relationship with Him as we learn to love and trust Him in the wait.

when I first heard this song I'm ashamed to say I was at a Luncheon....
Teenagers preformed  mime style.....
 I started crying & couldn't stop.. . Others at the table that I didnt know started crying too.
My Mom whispered are u ok? she didn't have a clue how or why this song moved me so.
 this was so unlike me. Mom was embarrassed.Embarrassed of course
I felt this song was written for me.  It was dead on w what I was going thru.
 its my mantra when I'm wanna lose it or what ever upset me.
I repeat over & over leggo  let God
  leggo let God
 like a crazy woman....... but it help me. He handle it whatever it is.
