“So we will wait for the Lord. He helps us and protects us.”
Psalms 33:20 ERV
There is nothing like having to wait. It’s frustrating and oftentimes appears to be a waste of precious time. I hate waiting for anything, I want my food to be fresh and good, and then I complain because of the time it takes to cook so if can be fresh and warm when I get it.
I want my body to be healed and restored but I am angry at the process of healing, the therapy and the pain and the frustration of waiting.
I want my marriage to be healed but I get frustrated at how long it’s taking God to heal me from my past, to heal my husband from his past and the time it’s taking for us to become one.
Any of those sound familiar? Yeah me too but I keep hearing the Lord say Wait! Trust in me and wait.. trust the process and wait.
Waiting patiently is about trusting God, it’s trusting that even as you wait he is working things out for your good. That as you wait he is perfecting you for what he is preparing for you. So think of this scripture :
“I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace as you trust in him. Then you will have more and more hope, and it will flow out of you by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13 ERV
