I’m Worth the Wait

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9)

God does not see things the way that society does. God does not see things the way that we do. Many times we allow people or emotions to cloud our judgment, but we have to understand that there is no peace or clarity outside of the will of God. We can have a new relationship, but we won’t be happy without Jesus. We can look “beautiful” by society’s standard, but we won’t feel happy without knowing our worth is in Jesus. We can even be wealthy, which can buy anything our hearts desire, but it won’t give us peace or love.

Many people have recently been messaging me with dilemmas that are hard to understand. I say that because, many of us would not date a nonbeliever if we understood who we were in Christ and what His plan was for us. If we understood that hell is real (just like Heaven), we would invite people to Christ and be witnesses to more to souls rather than trying to “date them into a relationship with Jesus”. Some call it “missionary dating”, where you get the false impression that they will love you enough to attend church with you. My question is, where’s God in any of that? Dragging someone to church in order for them to get saved all so that we can marry them is a selfish desire that God may not honor (read James 4:2-3).

When tempted to give in to lust, remind yourself that God has something better for you.

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalms 37:4)

When tempted to go back to the ex who only led you to sin, remind yourself that God wouldn’t free me if He wanted me to go back into sin.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (Galatians 5:1)

When tempted to settle for just anyone saved or not just to not be lonely, remind yourself that God is never going to ignore His children.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. (Psalms 84:11)

When tempted to have sex before marriage, remind yourself that the marriage bed is honorable and sex can wait to be enjoyed the way that God intended. 

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: (1 Thessalonians 4:3)

You are worth the wait. Your time is to be valued. Your body is to be respected. Your God is to be honored. Don’t feel ashamed if you are the only one doing it, but never forget…. You are worth the wait.

  5. Hi
    I am a divorcee of coming up for 10 years. There was a lot of healing that Jesus has done and is continuing to help me through. I would like one day to get married again. However most guys these days are only after the intimate side of relationships. When I say I do not believe in sex before marriage they then walk away. Am I doing something wrong or is is right that to follow what Jesus says. Even though I have 3 children from my marriage. I honor God with everything I have but sometimes I wonder if I will ever find anyone with the same amazing grace and values that I have, Please any words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated thanks x

    1. Keep honoring God.
      “For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” (Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬)

    2. It will only take time there is someone out there that desires so much all the specifications and conditions that you want. My advice will be that you continue to use all that you have to glorify God and he will not put you to shame.

  6. Hi!

    How can i fight temptation? I know God wants me to do but failed to do so and making the same mistakes over and over again.. ;( I felt so ashamed of myself.. i fall easily in love and got devastated after a guy got what he wants from me.. Please I need some enlightenment.

    1. I understand how you feel and what you are going through. Every time I failed Christ, I remember his word if you love me you will obey me. I prayed and asked for strength, over time I was strengthened. It is still a battle but my desire is to please God. Stay in prayer and and put on the amour of God (The Word). I will pray for you as well, don’t loose faith, Jesus will never leave or forsake you.
