Daily Devotions with davepettigrew – Season 6. Episode 7. The Waiting.

Today we’re talking about the waiting. About patience. About God’s timing and how we struggle though waiting on the answers. We dive into Lamentations, the Psalms and Habakkuk. Get ready to wait…and have you faith strengthened through it all.

    “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
    Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:13-14
    Easier said than done. But His timing is perfect.
    When we’re in the waiting stage, we don’t see it. We tend to think everything should take place right now. All the answers should come immediately.
    We don’t see all the pieces that need to come together. All the people, circumstances, etc. that are involved. God works it all out according to His plan and His timing.
    And sometimes we just need to learn to wait. It’s a fruit of the Spirit, so if we’re born again, then we have the Holy Spirit and we have the fruit of patience. We just need to believe it and tap into it, and grow in it.
    Again – easier said than done.
    Waiting… Patience… Trust… Faith… We all need to grow in these.
    When we get impatient and move ahead of God’s timing, we get in God’s way. We cause further delay.
    Abraham got ahead of God’s timing and got Ishmael.

      Thanks for sharing Margaret. Yes, easier said than done for sure…but…Jesus. In the midst of it all. He hangs with us and cares for us through our own impatience and uncertainty.
