SORT BY Relevancy
Please join me Tuesday March 24th at 11am CST as we talk about how Jesus commanded His followers to wait for what The Father had promised. He made a distinction between the different baptisms. ( Look at Acts 19)
Obviously He knew we needed to be endued with His power to be witnesses.The Scripture is very clear , that this is a supernatural harvest, done supernaturally, by the power of The Spirit. Clearly laid out in scripture. He knew we would have supernatural enemies. He gave us supernatural weapons. ( Ephesians 6) For the Commission He gave , for it to be successful, it has to be done His way.
Traditions and opinions won't accomplish the mission. His instructions , by His power through us will.
Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, "Which," He said, "you heard of from Me; (Acts 1:4)
for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Acts 1:5)
but you will receive power whenthe Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."(Acts 1:8)
Maybe life’s “delays” are meant for us to exhaust every human means possible?!?!

In studying the lives of these great people, I've discovered 4 reasons God makes us wait:
1. Waiting Reveals Our True Motives
Waiting has a way of bringing out the best and worst in people. People who don't have good motives won't wait long because they're not interested in the commitment it takes to see something through. They're too interested in short-term gains or success.
Most of us have good intentions, but a lot of what we want to accomplish is an attempt to make a name for ourselves or for our own egos. It hurts to say this, but it's often true.
2. Waiting Builds Patience In Our Lives
Patience in waiting for small things leads to having patience in the bigger things. If we can't wait for God to do a small thing, we certainly can't wait for something bigger.
3. Waiting Builds Anticipation
Why do children get so excited around Christmas? Because the wait has produced anticipation. We tend to appreciate things the longer we have to wait for them.
4. Waiting Transforms Our Character
Waiting has a way of rubbing off the rough edges of our lives. Most of us know the story of Moses delivering the Israelites from the Egyptians. It's a grand story of God doing great miracles.
We married in 1988 and began our family in 1998. Those ten years were very long and painful. There was a purpose in the waiting. We just didn’t see it or want to see it at the time.
One of the biggest difficulties, for some, is to keep moving forward while you wait…to constantly be learning in the waiting room.
Do you take opportunities to learn something while you wait?
Whether it’s Steve Harvey, Iyanla Vanzant, or many other self-proclaimed relationship “experts”… when it comes to SEX, there’s no shortage of bad advice that puts some form of time frame on how long a woman should make a man wait for intimacy. Please join me on “The BEST of The Dedan Tolbert Show” TONIGHT at 9:00pm EST for a rebroadcast of our special on “The 90 Day Rule: How Long is too Long to Wait for SEX?” If you think that just because a man sticks around for 90 days, that means you’ve got a keeper, you definitely need to tune in by calling 646 200 0366 or online worldwide at www.dedantolbertshow.com... “Real Radio that Matters”.
Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! is NPR's weekly hour-long quiz program. Each week on the radio listeners can test ther knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world while figuring out what's real news and what's made up.

In October 2007, Harper Collins published Peter's first book, The Book of Vice: Naughty Things and How to Do Them, a series of essays about bad behavior, which was released in paperback in 2008. Does the Constitution have what it takes to keep up with modern America? Join Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! as he hits the road to find out. Traveling across the country by motorcycle, Sagal is in search of where the U.S. Constitution lives, how it works and how it doesn’t… how it unites us as a nation and how it has nearly torn us apart.
We'll also take an online road trip to Ken's Cedar Keyside DIner in Cedar Key, Florida.

"WAIT." The idea of waiting is not a popular one. But that is precisely what GOD asks us to do. Waiting is an exercise in courage. We experience many circumstances where waiting is painful. Psalm 27 encourages us to know that HE is our light, our salvation, our refuge and our stronghold. Our FATHER promises to strengthen our hearts as we exercise courage in waiting. Let's learn to wait by waiting on the LORD. Let us experience the strengthening of our hearts that results from waiting in prayer and meditation before HIM.
