The Waiting

God is an on time God! I have heard these words preached, taught, and even sung about, but in my morning devotions I was reminded that waiting on God is a great part of the Christian experience. I am a person of action and I have to admit waiting is extremely difficult for me. Yet, God knows exactly where his children are in life and is intricately involved in bringing His plan to fruition in their lives; even when they can’t see Him at work!

“Waiting is never easy. But remember one thing: when there’s nothing you can do, it doesn’t mean that nothing is being done. You have a God who is watching and working for you” – David R. Schmitt (Man of God)

God has promised in His Word…

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Lord, help me to always remember You are on your throne and in control of my life. Even when I do not see you at work You are there working behind the scenes. Thank You for being ever involved with my life. In Jesus name, Amen!
