Morning Motivation: God’s silence shouldn’t cause confusion. A Silent Saturday led to a great Sunday. Learn to wait without worrying. ROHO Sermon:
Read: Matthew 28:16-19: Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost
Waiting is extremely difficult, sometimes even painful. We wait for so many things and often times the duration we have to wait can be excruciatingly long. It only gets worse in those moments when we feel like we are waiting on God. But God always has a way of making our wait worthwhile. Today’s sermon teaches us that it will be worth the wait. You’ve got to learn how to build a strong faith that will stand secure even in moments of uncertainty. The wait should frustrate your faith, but it should never fracture your faith.
The key to surviving the wait is to remember that every good thing takes time. Fruit gets sweeter the longer it stays on the vine. The greatest tasting meal you had did not come instantly out of a microwave. Likewise, the greatest blessings in life will not be handed to you over night. You can only be patient if you understand that the process is worthwhile. Embrace the wait!
