The Lord told me to wait. I waited a few hours. Then I started to come up with a really good plan. What I thought was a good plan anyway. Mine. Not His. It didn’t involve Him. I would forget about the waiting. I would go ahead. With my idea.
Then the Lord in His mercy and patience reminded me.
“Wait,” His Spirit spoke to my heart.
I knew what to do. I have learned the hard way. Rebellion for far too long. I would get rid of my idea. And obey. I would wait. On the Lord.
Why wait? Because Jesus Christ is Lord. And when He says wait, no matter the reason, there is only one thing we should do. Not come up with our own plans. Wait. For Him to lead the way. In His time. For His glory.
Have some waiting to do?
“But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
