I’ve said it a million times, but it’s a true as it was the last time, every time I say it.
I have no patience. I don’t like to wait. I despise waiting.
I’m a hurry up, get it done, stop lolly-gagging, get to it, and do it, type of guy.
I can’t stand waiting. I’ve got a schedule that I’m sticking too, and waiting just drives me up the wall!
So, then, listen to the words of Psalm 62: 5-8. They are really good for me to hear this morning, and every morning:
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.
Ok, sounds good. But why? Why do we have to wait? Why do we have to do this? Well, here’s my feeling?
Waiting reminds us that we aren’t in control. That it’s not up us. That we are not the end all and be all of creation and life.
God is in control. We are not. We are not God. Really. We aren’t. There are plans and powers higher than us. There are things that are going on that we can’t understand and won’t understand.
And so, we have to trust. And wait.
And know that God is good. God is love. God has this.
So today, you may have to wait. I’m sorry about that. Believe me, I am.
But God will bring something good out of this. That’s what He does. Today, trust, and wait.
Because God is good.
