Depending on where you are on your walk with God, the level of intimacy with your personal relationship with Jesus Christ varies
from person to person. Some may be in a committed, solid relationship with Jesus for a long time, while others may have started not
long ago, making their relationship a bit less mature. Often times we hear people say, “I’m waiting for God’s timing”, whether it’d be
for a financial breakthrough, a new job, the perfect school or the right God-sent partner to get married to. What may be complicated
however is the question that all Christians ask at one point or another, “what does waiting on God even mean?” It can be frustrating
when you are at a point in your walk with God when you constantly hear people say, “God spoke to me and said this or that” and you
don’t know how to hear God’s voice for yourself. We have all been there and done that, but the beautiful aspect of this dilemma is
that, the closer you get to God, the more you learn to understand how God speaks to you and when He does. It’s a process that takes
time as you learn God’s characteristics and get closer to Him.
Relationships with the opposite sex are a topic that all Christians around the world talk about and experience in one way or another.
For many, it becomes an issue that can consume a lot of their mind and time as we try to figure out whom we will marry. This is a
particular area where we regularly hear women in the church say, “God has the perfect husband for you”, and “wait on God to give
you your partner”. These are comments that as young people can be challenging to accept considering we are emotional beings
with hormones that don’t always want to cooperate, alongside the fact that Satan is out there trying to distract you from fully understanding what “waiting on God” consists of; resulting for many to get into the wrong relationships and experience unnecessary pain.
In today’s highly social and distracting society, young people are more exposed than ever to people’s romantic relationships and
love quotes all over the Internet, which can at times make us feel lonely, worthless or desperate if we don’t understand the concept
of God’s Timing. Crystal Neil is a young, brilliant, educated, professional and God fearing woman who recently got engaged. Crystal is in her early 30’s and is no stranger to the knowledge of the challenges of this world, nonetheless has been able to overcome
obstacles and allow God to work in and through her to be where she is today. We took some time with Crystal to ask her a few questions about what does it mean to wait on God in today’s world? Let’s take a look!
