Waiting on God
By Rick Boxx
December 20, 2011

Bob needed to move his floral shop to a new location. He found a great location with more space and very little rent increase, but the landlord wanted them to take additional space, increasing their cost significantly. Bob called me for advice.


When I learned that Bob's wife didn't want the additional space, I challenged Bob to offer only on what he needed and wait on God.

Isaiah 30:18 teaches, "Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!"


Bob emailed me later, "God came through and provided a new store. And we didn't have to take the extra space."

In your decisions remember, "Blessed are those who wait on God."
