The Wonders of Waiting

 My Dear Friend,

              In many books, in many lives, in many places, in many seasons, Scripture shows men and women of God experiencing waiting at God's sovereign command. 

              Moses waited in Midian, Joseph in Egypt, Ruth in Judah, and Paul in Tarsus. These and many others experienced the wonders of waiting. What are they?

             Waiting on God occurs when we draw near to read, pray, and worship at Jesus' feet daily. Waiting for God occurs when we patiently wait for Him to fulfill His promises, prophecies, and answers to our prayers. Waiting in God occurs when we learn to wait on God so habitually that we wait for Him maturely - abiding in Him constantly, satisfied with His fellowship, contented with what we have, trusting His unfailing faithfulness, hoping in His sure promises, and expecting to see His hand in our life every day ... until all His fulfillments arrive on the shores of our lives.

             In that day, we will find all our "waitings" have thoroughly changed us into the character image of the One who has asked us to wait.        

            Wait on God, wait for God, wait in God - and you'll soar with God, a full-fledged spiritual eagle, and help others soar with you! "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31).

            Behold, the wonders of waiting. Believe them. Live them. Model them to this impatient, unspiritual, but loaded-with-potential-in-Christ generation!

Waiting, changing, soaring,
