Waiting on the Lord

Recently I met with a successful business leader who told me that one of the hardest things for him is to “wait on the Lord.” He was ready to move forward with the next stage of his career, but God wouldn’t release him yet.

Driven business leaders often struggle with waiting patiently on God’s direction instead of charging forward on their own.

In Acts 16 we read, “And after they came to Mysia, they were trying to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them.”

Paul was stopped twice from moving forward with his plan, but by waiting on the Lord, he eventually launched a vibrant church in Macedonia.

When you’re feeling stifled by God, don’t forget that He knows the beginning and the end.
