An advantage for those who to trust

For since the beginning of the world, men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him. Isaiah 64.4

God works in favor of those who wait for Him. To wait on God does not mean to sit around with your arms crossed, resigned to your situation; much less, to remain anxious, worrying whether God will actually do something about your problem. Those who wait are those who trust in God, and depend 100% on Him, placing all of their hope solely in Him.

Observe this marvelous and exclusive characteristic of our God: He works for those who place their hope in Him. He works for those who believe. This is extraordinary! God, the Creator of heaven and earth, the Creator of everything and everyone, chose to work for those who manifest their faith in Him. This is one of the clauses in the contract we signed by faith when we surrendered our lives to Him.

This statement may offend many religious people, but they can complain to the One who wrote the Bible. It is written and registered that He is this way. It is in His character to match each person’s act of faith with an act that only He can do. This does not diminish God; on the contrary, this only exalts Him.

Who else, having such power and authority over the entire universe, would make such a deal with man? This is why there is no other like Him. There has never been, nor will there ever be. And, because this is part of His character, our faith remains firm that, no matter what happens, nothing can stop us.
Even if we don’t have the necessary human conditions, even if the odds are all against us, even if the world hates us and no one wants to help us, we have the Almighty working in our favor. If – and only IF – we manifest this faith with actions that show our conviction. If there is doubt. If we do not give up. Then, yes, we will succeed. He does not work for everyone. He only works for those who surrender themselves 100%.

For those, He also says:

For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not; I will help you.’ Isaiah 41.13

This word is more than enough to keep us fully confident. This dissolves any anxiety. Why should we be anxious? If God is with us, helping us and working for us, nothing prevents us from moving forward and doing our part, no matter what comes along the way.
