Why Wait?

Why Wait?

I am not a good “wait-er.”   It seems so pointless and inefficient.  Let’s get on to the good stuff. NOW!  But God, often, requires us to wait, on Him.

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”  Psalm 27:14

God has purposes in the waiting.  He created the world in 6 days…..not in an instant. 

He chose to bring the walls of Jericho down in 7 days…not the first time the army marched around.  

And He raised His son from the grave 3 days later.  

Why the wait?  I don’t know.  But I do know we can trust Him in the waiting.  He is the same God today, tomorrow and however long He invites us to wait.  If you are in a season of waiting, God isn’t punishing you.  He is working out His plan, in His perfect time. He and His perfect plans are worth the wait! – Sandi
