Waiting on God Week 1 Bible Reading Summary

Trying to figure out what to do while you wait on God? His word tells us! Check out the passages to understand what to do while waiting. #WaitingOnGod

Welcome to the Waiting on God Week 1 Bible reading summary! If you haven’t picked up a reading plan yet, you are welcome to join in at any time. The plan can be printed out OR I like to screenshot it to my phone for easy access. I like to begin and end the plans on the month for easy tracking. So we started on the first and I’ll summarize the first three days we read this week. Ready?

James 1:13-18

We love for things to be “perfect.” But when God’s perfect timing isn’t the same as our own, we have a tendency to grow weary in the wait. Thank you, Lord, that in spite of our impatient foot-tapping or even heavy foot stomping, you never change and only want the best for our lives.

Psalm 27:7-14

I so loved this passage for many reasons.  Verse 13 says “I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.” There is no guessing for the psalmist. He knows that God is good and he will show his goodness. The problem is not that God is not working. The problem is that we can’t see his work. Jesus, reveal yourself to us today while we wait. May our hearts eagerly embrace the beauty of the wait and the brawn of the work.

Psalm 130:1-8

When God has us in a waiting mode, we often think “What am I supposed to do while I am waiting?” The psalmist tells us what we should be doing in this passage.

What do we do while we are waiting? Put our hope in God's Word!! #WaitingOnGod

While we wait, we place our hope in God’s Word! To place our hope in God’s Word, we must know the Word. And to know the Word, we need to read the Word.

I am so loving this reading plan so far! What have you been learning? I’d love to read about it today!

Have a fab Friday!

By his grace,

Rachel

  1. I do enjoy reading your blog and this dedicated devotional in particular is needed more in this world. I pray knowing that God has me right where he wants me. His plan is perfect. I see my friends going and making the most out of their lives which is great…but I know I’m in a season of life that is to work and rest. Maybe that means to wait?? Since I let go a man that I cared about deeply. All I can do is live in the joy and peace of what Gods given to me. Any man or new situation will be added unto those who wait and love the Lord.

    1. Hi Angie:
      I am in the same boat as you. Waiting on the Lord to provide me with the right man. In the meantime, I’m working on familiarizing myself with his word and finding peace and comfort in his presence.

  2. I am in. Love your blog!

  3. This passage was so helpful to me! I’m in the waiting process and I’ve become weary, because I feel like I haven’t felt God’s presence around me. But I woke this morning with a renewed since of hope and faith in the ONE that gave his very life for me; and if he gave me his son…won’t he give me the desires of my heart as I seek him…YES HE WILL!

    Rachel, I am loving this short study of God’s word every day!! I also am a part of RTW-Reading Through the Word with Wendy Pope from Proverbs 31; I have been reading my chronological Bible for 6 years now. Of course, I am a retired school teacher so I do have more time than a lot of women.
    I rewrote Psalm 130:1-8 after I learned the difference in the usage of LORD and Lord!!! I love doing this method as it has a “different flavor” of His word after RTW. I just love His word. I am so very thankful that I found you on the internet.
    Waiting for what God has for me daily,
    Mema Jeanne
