“Waiting Well” and Change Can Come “In A Moment”

On Monday, I met a friend for lunch. It had been a long time since I had been with Howard. It was a great time together. Even though we had grown apart after I left the Vineyard, we found that there was a common thread at how we had walked with the Lord in these years.

Howard shared how he too lost his job, and what had transpired since, and how the church fellowship he was a part of had to close its doors, even though he still facilitates a small group. Howard has grown much and continues to grow in Christ. He is my friend and I cherish him and value him.

Last Pentecost Howard received insight from the Lord, and sensed the Lord had two things for him. The two statements were “wait well” and “in a moment”. Howard explained how we have a hard time waiting for the Lord to do what He desires to do, but that we need to wait in expectation, and wait in preparation, and self evaluation, all the while waiting for the “in a moment” when everything can change in an instant.

I have thought on this too, and it seems God is refining us, and preparing us, but allows us to do so as we wait, as we are refined, as we are stirred, as we are renewed in Him. As you all wait well today, for your own time when the Lord opens a new place, and reveals His plan and purpose to you, I pray that the preparation that you are making will be but in a moment, that which you need for your breakthrough.
