Learn to Wait...

'My times are in your hand…'Psalms 31:15

The Psalmist writes, "I trust in You, O Lord; I say, 'You are my God. My times are in Your hand'…" (Ps 31:14-15 NKJV). As you walk with God you will find that you spend more time waiting than you do receiving. When you receive what you’re waiting for, then you will begin waiting for something else! So if you don't learn to wait with joy, you will live in frustration. Paul writes, "Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not" (Galatians 6:9).

'Due season' is when God knows the time is right, not when you think it is. God has a set time for accomplishing things in your life, so you might as well settle down and wait because that's when it will happen, and not before. God knows what you need, when you need it, and how to get it to you. You ask, "what am I supposed to do while I’m waiting?" the answer - Trust Him!

One Bible teacher writes: "God has taught me to keep living the life I now have while I’m waiting for the things that are in my heart to come to pass. We become so intent on trying to give birth to the next thing, that we neither enjoy nor take care of the things at hand. During those years I believe I missed a lot of joy by trying to give birth outside of God’s timing."

Learn to enjoy where you are, while you are waiting to get to where you want to be.
