WAIT, WAIT, WAIT

Waiting on the Lord essentially means to love and obey Him even when He seems to be doing nothing. A little oxymoronic, right!? One of the most difficult things for me to do in life is to wait on God. If you know me then you know that I am ambitiously impatient. I will typically say, ‘God, I am waiting on You’ and then moments later, I dive head first in the pool of aggressive spontaneity. In that moment and even though it might be the right action, I forget that the right action taken outside of God’s timing is still considered disobedience. Stepping outside of God’s timing (will) delays planned blessings and adversely impacts those around us; it’s the proverbial domino effect. Psalm 130:5-6 says, “I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning.” Like David through God’s word we must learn to wait on Him trustingly, silently, steadfastly, courageously, and expectantly. Trust me, just because you don’t see God doing something in your situation doesn’t mean that He is not at work in your life. So today remember the words from the Prophet Isaiah in 40:30-33, “Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
