If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Until-up to a time or event, but not afterward; before a time or event; in anticipation of; pending
There will come a time when you will just have to trust God. “Why am I starting off like this” you say; because I want you to realize that important statement. Some things you have no answer for, can’t control, etc., and you will just have to go through. But even in the things that you don’t understand, I want you to think about standing, agreeing and leaning on God. YES, I said think because there are some of you that would want and will turn back. There are some that will think about the things you USED to do because things aren’t going your way, but just hold on a little while. Look at the words Job stated here and push your way UNTIL. When we use the word “until” we are saying that even in the midst of trouble, I am going to stand in this spot. Until is a place where you don’t know what is going to happen, but you will be right here in anticipation for God to move. Until is a place where people will look at you and see that you are not in a place where you want to be, but are in a holding place pending God’s move. Until…it’s a place in time where you have never been before but at this point you are trusting for something to give soon.
Job was in a place where he had lost a great deal and now after losing He was trusting God in all that he had. He knew without a shadow of a doubt that God had all the power to get him out, but it was up to Him to get him out. Job didn’t know why he was going through, what he thought he had done, or anything of the sort, but he said that in the appointed time, he was going to wait until. The place Job was in was an unfamiliar place for him. It was a place that had uncertainty; a place that even his wife told him to just curse God and give up his life. A place where his closest friends told him that whatever you did must have been a cruel thing. A place where he had made a declaration that at this point, it was going to be God’s will, not his; but he was going to wait until.
Some of you are in an “until” place in your lives right now. You don’t know what is going to happen to the situation and are wondering “why”. But here is a place where God has entrusted you to go through; He has designed this test for you, because had He given it to someone else, they would have made him look like He made a mistake. He wants to use you in showing others that you will wait…that you will say to someone even if God doesn’t bring me out; I know He has the power to do. Your until place could be a job or a relationship, it could be a friend or a child, but whatever your place is, I dare you to place it in God’s hands. I dare you to trust God and say that I know that my appointed time WILL come, but I’m going to sit here and trust you UNTIL.
