If God is making you wait, there’s a reason. More than likely, He wants to protect you from getting your heartbroken. God uses these waiting periods to increase your trust in him and loosen your perceived control. Waiting reminds us we’re at the mercy (literally) of God’s timing, and we have no power to change that. As humans, we crave control, yet waiting pulls that from our grasp. I get it, waiting on God is like being strapped in a seat belt. Leaving us no other choice; we have to be patient. We can either ungratefully fight/resist it or contentedly embrace it. Patience says we will faithfully and solely trust in God alone!! Psalm 27:4 reminds us to, “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let our hearts take courage; wait for the Lord!” At the end of the day, God knows what we need, and if he wants us to wait, it’s always for his glory and our good. Our calling is simply to walk in faithfulness, humility, and patience!
