This morning I was waiting for the microwave to reheat my coffee … for a total of 25 seconds … and found myself annoyed at the wait. Seriously?! Less than half a minute, and I was impatient. We live in such an instant society that any waiting seems extremely difficult to do. We have become conditioned to having what we want at a moment’s notice. But sometimes life doesn’t co-operate and we don’t instantly get what we want.
So, what do you do when “instant” doesn’t happen and waiting is required of you? Choose to trust in God and put your hope in His word.
“I wait for the Lord, I expectantly wait, and in His word do I hope.”
“Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act.”
“And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.”
With God there is no such thing as too late. His timing is perfect … even if you have to wait on Him!
