There is not a one of us who enjoys waiting. Whether it’s waiting in line at the grocery store, the movie theater, or the post office, we just aren’t all that big on waiting.
Our lives are so busy, for the most part, that we want things to move, and move swiftly. We expect all of our electrical devices to spring to life at the click of a switch and perform their given tasks quickly.
Perhaps these are some of the reasons we have to discipline ourselves to slow down and wait on the Lord in prayer. We know that He hears us but we want our answers immediately whereas He wants us to spend time with Him so that He can renew, refresh, and strengthen us.
Waiting on the Lord should be a joyful time for us as we trust Him to be and do what we really need. Our waiting on Him should also be a time of serving, of ministering to, Him.
“Wait on the Lord; be strong, and may your heart be stout; Wait on the Lord.” The times are in His hands. He will lead. He will guide. He will get you where you’re going; right on time.
