Psalm 27:14 NLT, “Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.”
How are you when it comes to waiting? Nowadays, not waiting seems to be promoted more than waiting. I like how this verse relates waiting with being brave and courageous. It does take courage to faithfully wait and trust God, even when nothing seems to change about our circumstances.
Some of us have been waiting for years to have certain prayers answered and do not understand God’s timing. However, as we keep persisting in prayer, and choose to patiently wait for God, we can see how He continually renews our strength as He promised to in Isaiah 40:31.
Times of waiting help us to grow in our faith. As we wait, we can examine our souls and pay attention to what changes God is making in us. We can ask ourselves what He is teaching us. God will give us what we need for the path of waiting that we must walk.
