The Lord is wonderfully good to those who wait for him and seek him. Lamentations 3:25
Now I must admit, I hate to wait. Hate waiting behind slower traffic. Hate waiting in line at Wal-mart especially when there’s thousands of check-out counters but no one operating them. Hate waiting at doctor’s offices and hair salons. WAIT is a 4-letter word that just tends to rub me the wrong way. For some reason, I assume my time could be better spent doing something else.
Unfortunately for me (or I should say fortunately for me, I guess) the God, who holds the universe together, expects me to do just that-WAIT. Unlike the times I have waited for someone or something that failed to arrive, He promises that my waiting will not be in vain.
Did you notice that little 3-letter word “and”? It’s rather odd how something so small can have such significance. My waiting for Him is supposed to be accompanied with some action. We can’t get away with just the passing of months, weeks, days, hours, or minutes but we must fill the moments with seeking.
WAITING 4 HIM + WORK 2 SEEK HIM = WONDERFUL GOODNESS
Am I just marking time as it goes by or am I actively seeking Him as I wait?
