Waiting Beyond Prayer

I told a friend I would pick her up at work, bring her to my home, and after lunch I would take her back to work. She was not a believer, and I prayed and waited before the Lord before going to get her that day until I knew He would bring good from our visit.

But there seemed to be no appropriate moment to mention Jesus. It was not until we were on the way back to her office that the conversation quite naturally turned to her spiritual needs and I knew God was answering.

When we leave the place of prayer it is easy to then also leave our dependence upon Him. In His time, He will work; He will do all we trust Him to do. But our waiting must continue beyond our prayer time.

Thank You, Jesus, that after I’ve trusted You, eventually I’ll be able to look back and say, “Jesus led me all the way.”

"None that wait on thee shall be ashamed" (Psalm 25:3).
