TOPIC: When You Are In God’s Waiting Room (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 11 February 2023)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Numbers 7, Numbers 8, Numbers 9, Romans 7, Romans 8, Romans 9

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 1:1-16 (KJV)

1 Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:

2 And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.

3 And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the Lord of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the Lord, were there.

4 And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions:

5 But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the Lord had shut up her womb.

6 And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the Lord had shut up her womb.

7 And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the Lord, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.

8 Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?

9 So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the Lord.

10 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord, and wept sore.

11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

12 And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli marked her mouth.

13 Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.

14 And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.

15 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord.

16 Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.

MEMORY VERSE: “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; ” – Romans 4:20

Surely there is an end and the expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

There are times and seasons in life when we must all wait for God to answer our prayers and bring to manifestation a particular miracle we so much desire. Sometimes, this waiting period may be for hours, days, months, years or even decades. No matter how short or long the period we have to spend in God’s waiting room may be, it is never an easy or pleasant experience.

When God puts you in His waiting room, He determines exclusively when to show up, intervene and help you. For many years, Job had to bear great pain and wait until God turned his captivity around. David was anointed to be Israel’s king but he had to wait and endure persecution and trials from King Saul for many years before he was eventually crowned. Joseph waited for 13 years for the dream of greatness that God showed him earlier to be fulfilled.

Let us examine some of the steps you need to take in order to make waiting in God’s room worth your while. First, you must be a friend of God and be in a good relationship with Him. God has reserved His best for His children and friends and will give it to each of them at the right time. Second, you must have faith in God. Your absolute trust in God and His ability to do all things will keep you going in the face of adversity. Abraham did not stagger at the promise of God but was strong in faith giving glory to God (Romans 4:20). Jesus said, “Believe in God and believe also in me” (John 14:1b). Third, you must exercise patience and perseverance. Don’t give up! Abraham, Zechariah and Elizabeth, David and Joseph did not. Quitters do not win and winners do not quit. Lastly, you must obey God completely, promptly and unquestioningly. Everyone who exhibited these attributes left God’s waiting room victorious, rejoicing and fulfilled.

Beloved, are you in God’s waiting room for marital breakthrough, financial breakthrough, ministerial breakthrough, healing or the fruit of the womb? I pray that you will not wait in vain, in Jesus’ name. Heaven will answer you speedily and your joy will be full, in the name of Jesus.



  1. Father, give me the grace to understand the seasons of life, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I receive the faith and patience to wait for God’s timing and profit by it, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I will not stagger in faith. I will receive the promise of God unfailingly, in the name of Jesus.


  1. I will not wait in vain; I will receive my miracles and laughter, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O Lord, let the period that I spend in your waiting room turn to great victory and rejoicing for me, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Father, turn hardship and pain in my life to great testimonies, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Angels of mercy and favour, locate me now, in the name of Jesus.
