Waiting Brings Blessings

Description

Waiting on the Lord is an essential part of spiritual discipline. It can be the ultimate test of our faith.

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.

Isaiah 64:4, niv

I hate to wait. I hate to wait for a traffic light to turn green,

for the doctor to see me,

for the telephone to ring,

for investments to produce,

for the copier to warm up,

for seeds to grow,

for the fax to go through,

for answers to prayer . . .

I just hate to wait. Period. Waiting is so hard, especially when I am waiting on the Lord. Sometimes He seems to be s-o-o-o  s-l-o-w. But waiting is an essential part of spiritual discipline. It can be the ultimate test of our faith.

If we grow impatient with waiting and take matters into our own hands, we will be in trouble. But if we wait on God, we will be blessed.
