But without a doubt, waiting on the Lord is the most difficult of all. Waiting for His promise to be fulfilled, for my prayer to be answered, for a door to open … His delays can seem so tedious.
If, like me, you are waiting on the Lord for something He has promised, watch out! Guard the temptation to take matters into your own hands or run ahead of Him. Impatience is risky and more than likely will result in delay, disappointment and even disaster.
“Wait, I say, on the Lord!” (Psalm 27:14).
Dearest Lord, I confess that I am prone to be impatient, which is a sign of distrust toward You. Please help me to wait upon You well. Increase my belief, trust and confidence in You and Your faithfulness. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
