Waiting on God's Timing, Part 1 – Charles F. Stanley

Published 2014-12-03
Broadcast for the week beginning November 30, 2014.

God loves us and desires to meet the needs of our lives. He promises to answer our prayers, but not always according to our timing or method. Dr. Stanley reminds us that waiting on the Lord is a vital principle for every Christian. God, above all others, knows when the timing is right for His perfect plan to go into action. After all, He knows our lives from beginning to end, so He knows exactly where we are at this moment.

    This is what I have heard

    - Wait patiently for God’s plan
    - Do things in God’s way
    - Make wise decisions
    - Be productive while waiting
    - Trust God
    - Don’t do things your ways
  • My name is Grace. I request everyone here to pray for me. I live alone, all by myself, separated from my family ever since my Mommy passed away 😭I am 37 already and not married yet. Waiting for God to send me the one he's ordained for me ASAP. I feel so lonely and miss my Mommy so much😭😭. I cant get over the pain of losing her. She was my strength and weakness both. I don't have anyone who I can rely on or share my pain with. No friends no relatives. I am an introvert and don't socialise much. Appreciate your prayers! Praise the Lord!

    Thank you Lord for Charles Stanley. Watching him by accident one Sunday morning when I couldn’t sleep, brought me to salvation. God is truly good all the time. All is perfect in His time, not mine.

    Sitting here alone tonight in front of my computer with tears streaming down my face. This was the confirmation I had been asking God for to my question of "does He still care and love me in spite of me screwing things up so badly in my life?". Thank you Lord Jesus for your Mercy and Grace and Your perfect timing. And lastly Lord, please increase the days of Pastor Stanley as we love him so very much.... In Jesus precious name... Amen
