Waiting

images-8

To wait on God is to struggle and sometimes to fail. Sometimes the failures teach us more than the successes.*

Good word from my devotional this morning 🌄

The Bible often connects waiting with faith. Sometimes Scripture even uses the two words interchangeably. While we might not like it, waiting serves an important role in our Christian life. The work God does within us while we wait is just as important as whatever it is we’re waiting for. Of course, none of us finds waiting easy. In fact, it might bring pain and will almost certainly try us and test us. Waiting demands patience and exacts a price. It’s the toll on the road of life that each of us must pay!

So God has given us two unchanging things: His promise and His oath. These prove that it is impossible for God to lie. As a result, we who come to God for refuge might be encouraged to seize that hope that is set before us.  That hope is real and true, an anchor to steady our restless souls, a hope that leads us back behind the curtain to where God is Hebrews 6:18-19

  1. i’ve lived long enough to experience the consequences of not waiting … even and especially when what i pushed through seemed good from the outset. it’s been … humbling. and has helped me endure the waiting a little better (though still not perfect; i’m good at whining).
