Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.
Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
This is a small sampling of the verses telling us to wait on the Lord. If God’s timing wasn’t different than ours; we wouldn’t need so many reminders.
I lack patience. When I want something, I want it sooner, not later (I can see my husband reading this at work, nodding his head). My 2010 new year’s resolution still isn’t accomplished. Obviously, what I wanted then wasn’t in God’s timing. Even harder to swallow is that sometimes His answer is no.
Do you, too, need to remind yourself to be patient and wait on Him?
