“I waited and waited and waited for GOD. At last He looked; finally He listened.” (Psalm 40:1, The Message).
Sometimes, no matter how desperate things may seem, the only option you have is to wait. And while it may seem to take forever, the Lord will indeed look and listen to your plea.
“Well, why doesn’t He do it right now?” we ask in confusion.
Obviously He is up to something that is not only best for us, but is also far beyond our capacity to understand in the anxious moment.
In times like these we are in “The Wait Training Room.” The Lord is deepening our reserves of faith, strengthening our resolve in hope, and increasing our resources of grace.
When He turns things around for us, we will rejoice in great joy for all He has accomplished on our behalf – even though we were questioning His love and faithfulness in the process.
Remember, all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. He knows what He is doing, and not a moment is wasted in His plans of making us more and more like Jesus.
