A few Sundays ago, I overheard this conversation between two men:
“If you had been here earlier …”
“Yeah, I know, my wife …”
“Say no more, I have a wife too.”
True love waits because our true love often keeps us waiting. Actually, that’s true even of our very true love: God. He often keeps us waiting: waiting for answers, waiting for healing, waiting for a miracle, waiting for a breakthrough … Why all this waiting? Nothing tests our faith like time ticking away while deadlines approach or pain persists.
If you are convinced that God can & will help you, you will wait patiently. The more patient you are, the more faith you demonstrate, the more the Lord loves to lavish His blessings on you. Don’t worry, don’t fret, don’t throw a fit; trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding…
