Do you remember being a kid waiting for Christmas morning to get here? What about 4:45 when it’s 15 minutes until you are to clock out for the day? How about when you are going through trials in your life? Waiting is hard. There’s no denying that. And if we are honest, waiting for God is sometimes even harder. We have to remember we are on His time. He is not on ours.
At times we feel as though He isn’t listening to our prayers or simply doesn’t understand the pain we are going through or the urgency of our situation. This thinking though implies that He isn’t the one calling the shots.
The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should wait quietly for salvation of the LORD (Lamentations 3:25-26 ESV) Also in Romans 8:18 Paul tells the Romans and us this, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
The LORD is using these times of waiting to refresh, renew and to teach us something. Instead of dwelling on what is not happening in our lives, perhaps we should use this time to discover what God might be trying to teach us.
So if you are experiencing pain, sorrow or simply just waiting on something…trust in the LORD and wait for Him. He will always reward those that are faithful to Him.
Psalm 27:14 (NLT)
Wait patiently for the LORD.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.
