Joyce Meyer Shares Misunderstanding About Waiting On God

Joyce Meyer is sharing a reminder about what it means to wait on the Lord.

The founder and leader of the Christian-based non-profit organization Joyce Meyer Ministries revealed some misunderstandings about what it means to wait on God.

“It is very common for people to misunderstand what it truly means to wait on God. We may see waiting as a passive, non-active time when our life is put on hold,” the preacher and author wrote on Instagram. “Most of us have a difficult time doing absolutely nothing, and if we view waiting on God in the wrong way, we may find that our misunderstanding leaves us disabled when it comes to actually doing it.”

Meyer revealed that waiting is actually an action word and shared some things that people can do in the process.

“A deeper study of the original language that we get our word ‘wait’ from reveals that waiting on God is actually intended to be very active spiritually. Although God may ask us to be still as far as trying to change our circumstances is concerned, He is not asking us to do nothing,” she wrote. “He wants us to have an attitude of expectancy regarding what He is doing, and He wants us to be hopeful and expect Him to do a marvelous work in our lives. He wants us to thank Him for what He is doing even before we see it with our natural eyes.”

While the process of waiting can be far from easy, Meyer states there are ways to find joy in those moments.

“Our thoughts and attitudes can keep us very joyful while we are in God’s waiting room, if we manage them properly,” she said.

Meyer closed her social media message with a scripture found in Psalm 27:14 which states,

“Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.” (AMPC)
