Sometimes we can get ahead of God by being impatient. Instead of becoming strong by waiting on the Lord as Psalm 27 states, we can become irritated by our situation and frustrated with God. Our focus then becomes on the situation or the timing and not on God. As we take our eyes off God, we then put them on our situation and then try to correct it according to our plan or at least we think we can. Our focus must stay on Jesus Christ or we sink. There are going to be days of what feels like silence from God. When we understand it is in His timing that makes all things work, the better our situation is. When we have this period of waiting we stand firm on the word, we pray and we wait on Him according to his timing, which is perfect. Satan wants you to move out without the Spirit. Impatience is not God leading but satan. You will be defeated if you do not wait. By not waiting on God, we become disobedient and have no power to stand against our enemies as Joshua found out when Achan acted unfaithfully in regard to the devoted things. (Joshua 7)
As we wait on God for a move of His Holy Spirit be careful not to become impatient with God. “I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! 14 Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” (Psalm 27)
