In A Waiting Chamber
We’ve all heard the saying “good things come to those who wait.” I absolutely agree this is the case in many instances. However, no one ever said it would be easy. Life is full of waiting chambers every step of the way. The older we get we realize the importance of patience but I’m not sure we ever like the process.
A child is told wait until you get older then you can do that. A teenager hears wait until you have your own car, job and home then you can make the rules. A young adult is told just wait on the right person God has for you to marry. A young married couple is told wait until you’ve saved up enough money before you buy that dream house or car. The hardworking senior citizen is told wait one day you can retire. Then, there are even those on a suffering death bed that are told just wait one day you will be in a place with no more suffering. Personally I’m in a season of great physical pain. Yet, I’m waiting and trusting God for my healing.
What waiting chamber does life find you? It may or may not have been mentioned. However, we are always waiting for something we believe is God’s will, but may not be God’s timing. In these waiting seasons, it’s so important we realize God is at work. Life may feel at a standstill but God is working everything for our good and His glory. Don’t be afraid to wait on the Lord. In fact, it’s the person living carelessly and impatiently that creates the biggest train wrecks. So don’t be afraid to wait. You aren’t called to chase God’s will. You’re called to seek God’s will and trust God’s perfect timing.
“But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
