Importance of Waiting
God’s timing is perfect always! And when we become tired waiting and run ahead of His plan, we will face disappointment and trouble. I admit it is difficult to pray and wait for God to come to our rescue when we see no visible evidence of His answer to our prayer.
But this is where faith is necessary: remember faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Also we need to remember that “all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.”
Sometimes it is necessary to remind myself that the scripture says all things, I also need to remember the next verse that tells me God allows these things to help me become more like Jesus.
Paul wrote that he had learned to be content in all situations, and he wrote those words while in prison; so during my days of waiting with a house unlivable because of severe mold spores, at least I am living in clean hotels.
Father, whether I can see evidence of Your working to accomplish Your will in my life, based on Your word I know in Your own time I shall have victory! Amen.
