Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. Isaiah 64:4
What an amazing thing to think about! God acts on your behalf! God saves. God delivers. God forgives. God puts you places where you need to be, and removes you from places you don’t need to be. God is for you! There is no end to God’s love for you. It never wavers, it is always the same, and always perfect. God is all about acting on your behalf if….you wait for Him.

There is a condition to God working on your behalf. That condition is that you wait for Him. Many of us don’t ever get to see much of God’s work for us, because we are so busy working on our own. We don’t like the idea of waiting, we like action. The problem is, unless God has told you to get moving, all of your action is worthless. We like to be sure all of our bases are covered, just in case. Is that, just in case God doesn’t come through? We would never say that out loud, but that is a lot of what is going on when we start doing things instead of waiting for God.
We often jump ahead of God. We do stuff. We build stuff. We plan stuff. When instead we should be learning and listening and preparing. God will show up at the perfect time. He won’t show up early or late. His timing is impeccable. You can count on it. Your job is to be ready when He says go. If you do this, God will act on your behalf and you will have plenty of action stuff to do. Remember God has the complete blueprint and knows exactly when all of the work needs to be done. Wait, then work as God directs. You will be amazed at how much easier life is when you let God work for you.
