ŸWHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU NEED TO WAIT ON GOD FOR ?:
___ Seek for, and then wait for God's guidance and leading before you make a decision.
___ You may need to wait for God to work through a problem or crisis, or even suffering.
(as opposed to trying to work through it in your own way or time).
___ You may have to wait a long time in order to understand and see all that God was doing in a
certain situation or circumstance in your life.
___ God may give you a promise and you need to wait on His timing for it to come about.
___ You may need to wait for God's provision for a need in your life.
___ You may want to be used powerfully by God in your life now, but you need to wait until He
can work in your heart, to bring you closer to Him & more one with Him & His purposes.
___ Many times you need to wait on God for answers to prayer.
ŸREVIEW ISAIAH 43:1-5, PSALM 66:8-12, & HEBREWS 12:7-11; WHICH
STATEMENT IS TRUE ?: (PAGE 45)
___ God would never allow trials and suffering in His children's lives because He is love.
___ The truth of God's word shows that He will use trials and suffering in His peoples' lives, and if
they trust Him and submit to Him, He will bring them to a spiritual "place of abudance" (NIV)
or a spiritual "wealthy place" (KJV)-- which is a far greater intimacy and oneness with Him,
and more like Jesus).
ŸREAD PSALM 62:5 (PAGE 45); WHICH IS THE CORRECT INTERPRETATION ?:
___ "Wait in silence" means to not talk to God at all during a trial or period of waiting.
___ "Wait in silence" means to be careful not to complain during your trial or waiting, as this
greatly offends God.
