The concept of waiting on God is seen as going into a secluded place to make several prayer requests accompanied with fasting. However, during the global lockdown about two years ago, I gave my children a simple but detailed enation on what waiting on God means.
When you visit a five star hotel, a waiter or waitress waits on you to take your orders and makes you comfortable. He/she focuses on you to attend to your food and needs because that’s what he/she is paid to do. He/she also attends to your complaints with smiles and sees to it that you’re satisfied to the fullest. Thus, when you wait on the Lord, it means you are the waiter while He is the Guest. Unfortunately, many Christians think its the other way round; they bombard God with different requests so much that the purpose of waiting is finally defeated.
When you wait on God, offer Him water and His best food which are quality praise and worship. Eulogise Him so well that He would feel good enough to give you a huge tip (blessing). Mind you, a tip (blessing) from God could last a lifetime.
How well you wait on God will determine if you will be tipped or not.
HYMN: There Shall Be Showers Of Blessing
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
