Romans 8:25 NLT But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.

We should all have a desire that we want from God. It could be healing in our bodies, increased wealth, new employment, a business, a better relationship with our family, or a dog. Whatever we’re believing God for will require patience and confidence until it comes.

Being patient means we’re not only waiting, but we’re waiting with a good attitude. We may be waiting on a new job to manifest, but at our current job, we should have a good attitude.

Patience also means we’re at rest (Heb. 4:11). We’re not anxious about when or how our desires are going to come. We’re patiently waiting on God’s perfect timing.

Simultaneously, while we wait, we should have confidence. Our confidence is knowing that God heard us the first time we prayed and since He heard us, we know we have whatever we asked for (1 John 5:15). There should be no doubt, skepticism, or unbelief while we wait. There should be a calm confidence knowing God is faithful and His word will not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11).

Let’s be patient and confident knowing God will fulfill His word.
