My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him. – (Psalm 62:5 NKJV)
One time as I was sitting on a plane, the stewardess came to me and shared that she was a born-again believer. Then she asked me my advice: “You know, I have many opportunities to witness on these planes. Many people open up and tell me their problems, and I’m able to lead them to Christ or pray with them. But I do it while serving liquor. Do you think I’m missing God’s will for my life?”
I meditated for a moment, and it seemed that the Lord quickened something to me that I had never thought about in my whole life. I said, “Nehemiah was a cupbearer to the king, and God used him to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah had to carry liquor, and God never condemned Nehemiah. That seems to have been special positions.” (See Nehemiah 1-2).
This was the answer that she needed, but it was not an answer that came from Marilyn Hickey. It was an answer that came from the throne of grace. The stewardess had waited on the Lord for an answer, and she was not disappointed. You won’t be, either.
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to be patient today as I wait on You for answers, knowing that my expectations will be met by You in due time. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
