Being Ready, Able and Willing to Wait!

21 11 2014

bridge reflectionOur current series coming into agreement with God has been looking at corporate agreement. If you have been a follower of this blog you know I am very faithful in posting every week. For the last two weeks I have been silent. Not because I wanted to be, but because CJM has been moving forward.

Two scriptures are a great comfort as we struggle and wait for others to move forward in agreement with God. The first is from the book of Joshua where God speaks to Joshua as he prepares to take Israelites into the promised land:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Over the last two weeks I have struggled with CJM’s move forward. Even as I prepare to write this blog post I don’t know clockwhere our office will be. We are interested in leasing a suite with three offices, great for the next three years of growth! The board is in agreement with God and now we wait as the landlord struggles to come into agreement with God and present us with a lease agreement. Man’s coming into agreement with God takes time and energy especially when they don’t really know him.

The other scripture is from the book of Hebrews.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Heb 12:1-2

We have to be ready, able and willing to wait as we move forward with God, understanding it takes time for everyone involved to come into agreement and move forward. I leave you with these words of encouragement.

Be Strong and Courageous, for the Lord is with you wherever you go!

Blessings and Complete Joy,
