13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! – Psalm 27:13-14 (ESV)
Wait. I don’t know about you, but that’s not my favorite word. In fact, it doesn’t even make the top 100 list.
But it should.
Your mom was right. The old adage that “good things come to those who wait” is absolutely true.
We’re all waiting for something. Peace for our troubled souls. A change in life. A season to come or a season to pass. Healing. Joy. A relationship resorted. A path revealed.
Whatever you are waiting on – no matter how big or how small – give it to the Lord. Instead of waiting for any thing in life, wait on the Lord.
Keep having faith.
Wait in faith.
Wait until your prayer is answered.
If He doesn’t show up – or, rather, you can’t perceive He has shown up – keep waiting.
Seek God. Let a Him build your faith. Let Him strengthen you. Know that what you are whatever you are waiting for is far less important than what the Lord has planned for you.
And God does have a plan for you.
A good plan.
A perfect plan.
The Lord knows exactly what you need and when. Don’t be anxious in your waiting. Don’t give in to the temptation to give up.
Keep your heart fixed on Jesus.
Keep your mind focused on God.
Wait with great patience and joy and thankfulness for all the Lord done, is doing, and will do in your life!
