Then, in a way we never could've figured out—God moves suddenly! In the Bible, Paul and Silas knew about waiting, and they waited well. Acts 16 tells the story of how they were attacked by a crowd, beaten and thrown in jail. Verse 24 says the jailer put them into the inner prison the dungeon and fastened their feet in the stocks. He was making sure they couldn't escape. But about midnight, God showed up.
They began to wait on God. God answered them suddenly! When people patiently and expectantly wait on God in the midst of horrible circumstances, suddenly God breaks through.

Thank You! When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it. The eagle does not escape the storm; it simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm. When the storms of life come upon us, we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us; we can allow God's power to lift us above them. God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment into our lives.
We can soar above the storm. Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them. What does it mean to be blessed by God while we wait on Him?
