I waited on the Lord for 17 years 9 months
During my waiting period, I did the following:
Prayed CONTINOUSLY, with a strong faith in The Lord, trusting in the Lord’s unfailing love.
Blessed other mothers with babies with gifts Eccl 11 v 1-6.
Attended naming ceremonies joyfully, believing my own time will come.
Always gave gifts to new babies.
Loved children and took care of them.
Attended prayer meetings, deliverance programmes, and having a dedicated private fasting/prayer day Lk 18 v 1, Heb 10 v 25.
Prayed, thanking God all the time for my situation, knowing He will glorify Himself Ps 48 v 1-2. Served God with my whole heart saying like ESTHER ‘if I perish, I perish’. Esth 4 v 16b.
Studied the word of God, knowing it by heart 2 Tim 2. 15-16, 2 Tim 3.16-17.
Shopped for babies’ clothes, buying and keeping them in faith.
The trigger was the fact one was hurt by spiteful comments and asking God to fight for us and prove He is our God. An unceasing faith that He would do it. Ex 14.14
My encouragement to those still waiting on The Lord is Never Give up on God. Hold on trust God, believe and use His Word and stand on His promises – Ecc 3.11. Live a righteous life. Do not ask for help from unbelievers – 2 Cor 6.14
Know your God and serve him faithfully.
There is honour in the place of service – Lk 1:5-8
