So, while waiting for my daily Bible reading plan to load the verse of the day, the screen shot looked like this:
Notice the verse is on waiting. And I was waiting for it to load!
Is that not a perfect picture of life sometimes? We are waiting on the Lord, but He seems to be taking his sweet old time “loading” the answer.
Do you, like me, need to learn to wait?
This verse has always puzzled me:
“But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:25 (ESV)
How can you “eagerly” wait with “patience”? Doesn’t eager seem to scream the opposite of patient?
But, if God tells us to do it, it must be possible. Will you join me in the school of waiting with patience?
List what your “wait” training issue is. I’d love to pray for you.
Lord, grant us patience when we want to forge ahead of You and make things happen on our own. Help us to remember that You are God and we are not. Amen
