Scripture says if we wait on God, we'll be blessed. If we grow impatient and take matters into our own hands, we’ll be in trouble.
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD
. PSALM 27:14
Waiting may be one of the ultimate tests of our faith. It certainly is one of the hardest spiritual disciplines to learn.
Isaiah wisely encouraged those who are waiting on God to consider others who have waited on Him. He pointed out in Isaiah 64:4, “Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.”
Scripture says if we wait on God, we'll be blessed. If we grow impatient while waiting and take matters into our own hands, we’ll be in trouble.
Are you waiting on God for something? Then take heart. Don’t run ahead. Be strong enough to wait. Wait. And again I say, wait for the Lord.
