The Work of God in Prayer

Recently in prayer, I began to understand the source of my frustration with others.  In my discovery, I realized how I had waited on men and not waited on God.  I had waited on men to be my help;  I had waited for men to have the answer.   I was waiting on men for my next move.  It was hindering my progress slowing me down and making me angry.  I saw my failure to wait on God was causing me to miss His move and with it, His great provision.  Bottom line, it was the fear of man and not the fear of God.  I began seeing where the fear of man ensnared me and left me without a Godly mandate to move forward.  That fear of men kept me from confronting my problems and issues with others.  It left me without a voice that could speak as God to inspire true leadership that moves to victory.   I did a lot of preaching at the problem, but was distant from confronting it head on with real solutions born out of relationship.  The people were not my problem, but failure to wait on God was.  Could it be God is calling you to a ‘relationship of waiting on Him’?   In your frustations,  your failure to wait is a failure to get a word from Him to speak directly with divine wisdom into the lives of others.  You like me need to see the work of God in prayer.  It is a work that reveals willingness to wait on God bringing rest from other men’s agendas.   In prayer, the Spirit of God will cause you to find a ‘fresh wind’ to fill your sails and propel you forward to victory.
