If you need a breakthrough in your life, are you actually preparing for it? Instead of waiting and wondering, when your breakthrough will come - get ready for it. Because if it suddenly comes, you don't want to be taken by surprise.
If waiting on the LORD renews our strength, then why on earth do we keep running ahead of Him? We cannot stand unanswered prayer for too long, and since we like being in control, we take matters into our own hands. Maybe we give it a religious labelling (“I’m stepping out in faith”); while really we are fed up with waiting on God and try to push Him to start moving.
Handling tough situations God's way does not leave room for human wisdom, but requires a heart fully commited to God.
