As single Christians, it is so important that we not grow weary while waiting.

Some of you have been believing God for years or even decades for a mate and you’re wondering, “Where’s my mate, Lord?” and, “What happened?”

You may have grown frustrated, blamed yourself, blamed others, or even blamed God for not sending you your Boaz like yesterday. You may have gone from relationship, to relationship, disappointment to disappointment, only to find yourself in the same position – waiting.

While you’re waiting for the manifestation, it is imperative that you
don’t give up. Don’t give up hope. The Word tells us in Romans 8:25,
“But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”
Continue to wait on the Lord and be of good courage. If God has assured
you in your private prayer time that you will be married one day – allow
Him to order your steps while knowing and believing that you WILL be
married one day.

Don’t grow weary in well doing for in due season you shall reap. Everyone’s due
season is different, so while waiting, don’t compare yourselves to others. Just
continue to run your race with God’s grace, knowing that all the promises of God in Him
are yea, and in Him Amen (2 Cor. 1:20). The Word also reminds us, “But they that
wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as
eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
(Isaiah 40:31) The Word, “wait” in this passage of Scripture means to expect,
to look, patiently, tarry, wait for.
The word, “renew” means to exchange, instead of.
And the word, “strength” means to be firm, vigor, ability, force, might, power.
So during this season of waiting, exchange your weakness or faint heart for His
strength, might, power and ability. God is able to do exceeding, abundantly above
all you can ever ask or think (Eph. 3:20), as long as you keep the faith and remain strong
while waiting.

Know that I love you, but God loves you more!
