Instead of vexing myself in desperation or rushing forward in presumption, He taught me how to wait. I waited patiently, in prayer, in expectancy and patiently. Knowing that even if He keeps me waiting until dawn, He will indeed come and fulfill His promise in His perfect time.
Waiting can not be learned without years of training. Oftentimes God allowed us to be in a situation where our patience is tested. It is one posture that a Christian is hard to embrace especially in this world where everybody is rushing. Waiting can either make you a better person or a bitter person. You may allow waiting to develop perseverance or you may imitate the Israelites, they grumbled murmured and wished that they could go back to slavery. You may accept your situation and wait in quiet patience, in faith with expectancy that God will come at the right time OR you may opt to rebel against God, to rush forward in presumption or go back to the world.
Until now I am still waiting and willing to be guided by His will. Remember that there is a great blessing in waiting.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord” Psalms 27:14
