3 Reasons Why Waiting on God Sucks

Can I have a “Truth Moment”? You know like Melanie and Derwin from The Game?

Ok truth moment: waiting on God sucks. There, I said it. Chances are most church leaders will never say this out loud but they all at some points in their lives have likely thought this. If not, they are lying to you.

Below are my top 3 reasons why waiting on God kind of sucks:

1. God is stretching you to your limits in terms of waiting, so now you have to be more patient than ever.
2. God will often speak to you in different ways, so now you will have to be more in tune with the Spirit.
3. God will bless others before getting to you, so now you have practice humility and stay hate free.

Now re-read the above list. All of the above will strengthen your relationship with God and they will lead you to a better understanding of yourself as it pertains to your faith walk. Truth be told, all God is doing by having us wait or go through these motions is building our faith muscles. If we really take a look in the mirror at ourselves, we’ve been getting flabby. For some, blessings have been falling out the sky right into our laps and our faith is getting out of shape because we didn’t have to stretch ourselves spiritually, mentally or physically.

So although going through a waiting period sucks (and trust me I know I’ve been waiting on God for 3 months to give me some insight on my current job situation), keep pushing.

What helps me get past this is reflecting back and knowing that I use to be in shape (faith-wise). We have to realize God isn’t trying to kill us, God is just trying to work us out a little.

What helps you when you pray to God and haven’t heard anything back?

    God sucks, and always will. Especially when he punishes us innocent people.

    You say it true brother, he is like a sports trainer, who knows our true potential, and wants us to build our faith. We have become ‘flabby’. I myself keep on having bad times; however, the time spend building up my ‘muscles’ I feel better. Feel- not tortured, but tested.
