It’s okay to wait when you wait for God. It is not easy to wait for anything. We grow impatient. We want things fast and easy. And when we wait without any idea what’s in store for us, the waiting becomes harder.
It is a different story when we wait for God. We may not know what is in the next corner but we know that God is there. We know that He remains faithful. We know that His understanding is too profound for us. We know that He doesn’t get tired of loving us, guiding us, and caring for us.
The truth is, even if we know how perfect, gracious, and loving God is, we still get tired of waiting for God. But if we wait for God, we put God at the center of the waiting process. And though we get tired, God empowers us. He renews our strength daily.
I had experienced disappointments in life that made me discouraged. But, by the grace of God, I continued to thread on the path of hoping in God in the middle of discouragement and confusion. But each day, I woke up with renewed strength to tackle the day’s affairs. Each day that I end, I felt the hope again for another tomorrow. I didn’t have that overflowing joy but I felt a sense of strength and determination within me. I took confidence in my everlasting God. So, I wait for Him. I wait for my Lord to complete His purpose in me through every situation He allows in my life.
I feel discouraged but I walk by faith and not by sight. I feel down but God mounts me up on wings like eagles!
“Haven’t you known? Haven’t you heard? The everlasting God, Yahweh, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t faint. He isn’t weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak. He increases the strength of him who has no might. Even the youths faint and get weary, and the young men utterly fall; but those who wait for Yahweh will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint.”– Isaiah 40:28-31 (ESV)
