Waiting is not one of my favourite pastimes! Once I get an idea in my head ….. I tend to want to execute it straight away. But I’ve learned over many years that it’s not a good idea to rush into things. Firstly ….. it may be a fleshly desire that started with me, not God. Secondly ….. I may not have all the necessary information to carry it through. Thirdly ….. it may not be the right timing. I wonder how much time and energy I’ve wasted trying to ‘make something happen’. When we do things in God’s strength and wisdom ….. it turns out so much better!
‘But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.’ Isaiah 40:31
