Lamentations 3:26(NIV)

“It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”

Wait Patiently On The Lord

If we are honest, all of us hate waiting on anything and anybody past a certain point. We want what we want and we want it now. In fact, we equate waiting with wasting. My father used to tell me “stop wasting time boy. Time is money”. I know you’ve heard that or some variation of that before.

And I can bet that you have probably said this next phrase yourself: “I can’t believe this is taking so long; it’s costing me time I don’t have”. That’s because most of us consider waiting to be wasting. However, it’s not like that with The God we serve.

You see, it might seem like you are wasting time waiting on God, but God is working while you are waiting.

Even when you can’t see what He is doing, God is behind the scene, somehow orchestrating the events of Heaven and earth to accomplish His purposes for your life.

So, Beloved, trust this God that we serve. Trust in His unfailing love — love that moved Him to send a Savior from heaven to save you and to restore you. God has plans for your life and those plans are “plans to prosper you and not to harm you.” And God’s plans will not be derailed. They will come to pass.

So wait patiently on God, Beloved, knowing that waiting is never wasted when you are waiting on God.

God bless you is my prayer!
