We wait on the Lord to act – to deliver, to answer our prayers, to renew our strength, to do what only God can do. We wait on Him because He is God and we are not. And waiting on God is good for us. As we wait on The Lord, He changes us and strengthens us. He rewards those who wait, and His timing is perfect.
We wait for all sorts of things, but what does it mean to wait on God? Wait on Him for what?
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of The Lord in the land of the living. Wait for The Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for The Lord.” Psalm 27:13-14
We wait on the Lord to act – to deliver, to save, to avenge, to answer our prayers, to provide for our needs, to renew our strength, to reveal His glory, to do what only God can do.
“Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” Isaiah 40:30-31
With The Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you” 2 Peter 3:8-9
