We don’t like to wait. We’re the giddy-up generation. We frown at the person who takes eleven items to the ten item express checkout. We drum our fingers while the microwave heats our coffee. “Come on, come on, come on!” We don’t like to wait.
But look around you. Do you realize where we sit? This planet is God’s waiting room. The young couple? Waiting to get pregnant. The guy with the briefcase? Waiting for work. Waiting on God to give, to help. Waiting on God to come. This is the land of waiting.
And you? Are you in God’s waiting room? You may be infertile, or inactive, in limbo, in between jobs, or in search of a house, spouse, health, or help. Here’s what you need to know: while you wait, God works. God never twiddles His thumbs. He never stops. Just because you’re idle, don’t assume God is. Trust Him. In the right time, you’ll get through this.
