“Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.” Isaiah 40:31
“Good things come to those who wait” -on God.
Do you ever find yourself struggling with waiting during your day-to-day routines? Whether my 4G takes five seconds to load rather than the normal two or I have to wait in line an extra three minutes for my coffee, I have found myself trying to rush the inevitable, uncontrollable postponement of my current situations. Existing on a planet that moves at one-thousand miles per hour, it seems I have taken it upon myself to keep up with its speed. While there being nothing wrong with efficiency, it is important to remember in our life there is no two-day shipping or call ahead seating in the timing of The Lord.
Timing is important to God-from the prophecies of the Old Testament to the fulfillment of the New Testament, there is a very clear timeline to the Word of God. Too often we look at the timeline of our life and wrestle with the perfect timing of our Father. When we trust in his timing, we trust in His perfection. As I have said in my previous blog- Hope For Hang-Ups “God’s timing isn’t a second too early or a second too late. It’s perfect.”
Patience is a virtue. It is a virtue that allows us to sit still and at rest in the midst of God’s impeccable plan for our life.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Psalm 27:14
