Are you waiting on God for something? ...for someone? Have you been waiting a long time? I certainly have.
Sometimes, while I was waiting, I tried to rush it - take things into my own hands and “make it happen.” Not surprisingly, this didn’t end well and I ended up sad and discouraged, and sometimes dealing with consequences. I’ve learned to wait.
According to the Bible, waiting is a time of preparation, not a time of deprivation or punishment. What do I need to do to be the person God wants me to be so that I can receive the blessed answer I’m waiting for? What is God trying to accomplish in me through the waiting? What is God’s goal as opposed to what mine is?
