In Your Own Hands

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: After waiting on God for a long time, are you ever tempted to take matters into your own hands?

“I’ve been praying for my marriage for ten years, and nothing’s gotten better. I think it’s time to get out.”

Nancy: How long should we wait on the Lord? Abram and Sarah wondered that. The book of Genesis tells us that they waited on God’s promise for a child for eleven years. Finally, they decided to help God out of the difficult situation, and Abram had a child with Sarah’s servant Hagar. But that wasn’t God’s plan, and it caused them all kinds of pain later.

God’s plan was for them was to wait an additional thirteen years! When their son, Isaac, was born, it was obviously something God did by His power.

What do you do when it doesn’t seem like God is coming through? I’ll tell you what you do: you wait on the Lord. In His time, He’ll show you His power.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
