Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. —Psalm 27:14
Just as in the natural birth process, there is a gestation period for a miracle. The Bible is filled with examples of people waiting for God’s promises. Abraham and Sarah waited for God to give them their promised son. The children of Israel waited in captivity for their deliverer to appear.
David waited on God while he was being pursued by Saul’s men. Israel waited for her Messiah, and the disciples waited for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are waiting now for our blessed hope, the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ for His Church.
God always comes through for those who wait on Him. The promised Son was born; the deliverer appeared; and the enemies were defeated. The Messiah was sent; and the Holy Spirit came. One day we who are waiting expectantly will be caught up in the clouds to be with our Lord forever! God is never late, and He never forgets His promise (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
I am waiting on You, O Lord. I know that
You always act at the right time. So I
praise You for all You do. Amen.
