Do you feel like you are in a waiting time this summer?
I'm parked right now so to speak.. but I get to head North and pick up my wife in about an hour. That's why I had a bit of time to look at these verses here—Yeah, I'm waiting. Expecting great things.
Have I been bored at all? No, never am. I've met a few new people in the last hour. Even had a chance to speak German with a nice German visiting here too.
When I go to the dentist, I normally dislike the Waiting Room, but hey, someone new could enter there as well. I might be able to share the Message with em. It's happened before. Who knows?
God Knows what He's doing. Do I always? No, sometimes I simply listen and try to befriend them.
Are you in a waiting room believer? Are you in an inbetween time. Just know that God orders our stops as well as our steps.
"I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry." ~ Psalm 40:1
Praying, resting, waiting, trusting—these are words that tell a story;
As we wait for God to lead us, He responds, "Just seek My glory." ~ Hess
At the dentist—that's when I normally try to stay preoccupied by reading if nobody is there. Many of us all over the place.. don't like waiting at all, but we've got to remember that God ain't in some big downtown sorta hurry. No, no!
God cares about fruitfulness, but there are times where He has important things for each of us to learn as we are in His waiting room.
And waiting ain't so bad. There are things we can do. We might even come to enjoy it as we wait on Him in silent prayer. You know how this dog-eat-dog world can be.. so filled with deadlines, push and shove.. rush, rush RUSH! But we don't need to be that way.
The Lord says to each of us, "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).
"Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes." ~ Psalm 37:7, nlt
"I wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him." ~ Psalm 62:5, nlt
In a nutshell.. Don't bark or turn into a shark, Clark, when God has your life in park.
