LEARN TO WAIT

LEARN TO WAIT

The Psalmist writes,

‘…I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.”

My times are in Your hand…’ (vv. 14-15 NKJV).

As you walk with God, you’ll find that you spend more time waiting than receiving. And when you receive what you’ve been waiting for, then you’ll begin waiting for something else! So, if you don’t learn to wait with joy, you’ll live in frustration.

Paul writes, ‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.’ (Galatians 6:9 NIV). ‘In time’ is when God knows the time is right, not when you think it is. God has a set time for accomplishing things in your life, so you might as well settle down and wait because that’s when it will happen, and not before.

God knows what you need, when you need it, and how to get it to you.

You ask, ‘And what am I supposed to do while I’m waiting?’ Trust Him!

One Bible teacher writes:

‘God has taught me to keep living the life I now have while I’m waiting for the things that are in my heart to come to pass. We become so intent on trying to give birth to the next thing that we neither enjoy nor take care of the things at hand. I had a vision from God ten years before I began to see it fulfilled. During those years, I believe I missed a lot of joy by trying to “give birth” outside of God’s timing. Learn to enjoy where you are, while waiting to get to where you want to be.’
