Psalm 27:14 NLT, “Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.”
Waiting is not very popular nowadays. Many things are expedited, and the general consensus is the sooner the better. However, we know that the Lord’s timetable is usually different from ours. I was encouraged by Cynthia’s post, “Heeding to Heaven’s Timetable or ‘Godspeed’”, reminding us that it is good to wait on the Lord. Learning to wait on the Lord is part of growing in our faith. As we wait, we learn to trust the Lord with our lives. He will never let us down.
Although waiting is not always the easiest thing to do, like the psalmist, we can wait expectantly.
Psalm 5:3 NIV, “In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”
The Lord hears us and will answer our prayers in the best way and time. Knowing the Lord understands our struggles and needs, is part of the joy we find in the wait.
