21 Days of Fasting & Prayer Devotional – Day 13: Waiting




Waiting on Jesus during prayer and fasting is an essential aspect of our spiritual journey. It is not always easy to wait patiently on the Lord, but it is necessary for our growth and development.


During this time of prayer and fasting, we must set aside distractions and seek the Lord wholeheartedly with our minds, hearts, and souls. We must do this with the expectation that we will encounter Jesus and experience his presence, power, and will.

When we wait on the Lord, we show our dependence on him. We acknowledge that without his help, our efforts are futile, and we can do nothing. Waiting on Jesus also helps us to refocus our thoughts, align our desires with his, and find strength and encouragement to persevere in our walk with God.


Isaiah 40:31 says, "But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."


As we wait on the Lord during prayer and fasting, let us believe that he will renew our strength, give us wings to soar above our challenges, and enable us to run with perseverance the race he has set before us.


So, let us wait on the Lord with faith, hope, and expectation, knowing that he is faithful and will not disappoint us. Let us seek his presence and listen for his voice, so that we may grow in our love, knowledge, and obedience to him. May waiting on Jesus become a joyful and transformative experience as we encounter his love, mercy, and grace.


As you are fasting today, ask God to speak to you about His will for this season of your life, and when He does, listen.


Scriptures

Psalms 25:13-14 His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.


Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.


Psalms 73:23-26 Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
