Fidgety, fearful and frustrated. Anxious and even angry. Shamefully, all emotions experienced this past week as I waited upon the LORD.

Wait,??. “I want what I want and I want it NOW. LORD, You don't understand.!!. What about this, what about that.??. But LORD...”

But He does understand. The One who formed the worlds with a Word. The One who numbered the hairs on our head and length of our days understands. The Giver and Sustainer of live understands.

It is when I forget He is the Potter, me the clay that anxieties come. It is when I set agendas and time lines, making my own plans, attempting to take the throne reserved for the King, that pressure builds and my life begins to unravel, wrinkle and curl up on the ends.

Waiting always involves the passing of time. Waiting patiently means we have confidence in God’s person: confidence in His wisdom, love, timing, understanding of our situation and that of the world. It means knowing and trusting in God’s principles, promises, purposes, and power. It means trusting our Father to do what is best for us at all times and in all ways.

There is a time to plow, a time to sow, and a time to reap, but never at the same time.

“Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

“The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9


Teach me LORD to wait with patient expectation. Please Abba Father, teach me to wait.
