Chelsea Crockett: Is God Waiting on You?

Do you ever feel like you are waiting on God? Waiting on Him to answer your prayers or give you a sign as to what to do next? What if He was actually waiting on YOU?

I once had a friend who was sure she was destined for a certain career. When I asked her if she had been looking into the job requirements or specific employers, she said that if it was God’s will for her to go into this occupation, then He would open those doors. It is good to pray and seek God’s will for these sorts of things, but you also have to get out there and put things in motion instead of waiting for them to happen on their own.

Is God Waiting on You?

Us young people really want to know what God’s will is for our lives. 1 Thessalonians 4:13 tells us “this is the will of God, your sanctification.” Unlucky for us, this does not give us much to go off of. The will of God is a hot topic and always will be. We just have to accept that we will never fully understand the “whys” and “whats” of life and instead focus on what we can do to go along with His plan and cooperate as much as He has given us the ability to. A lot of our success and failure in life depends on us. God gives us the ability to do these things—the freedom to try and fail. God is not going to do for you what you can do for yourself.
