I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to wait in long lines at a restaurant, or being stuck in traffic during rush hour, or being put on a long hold on the telephone. Waiting seems to be a waste of time. That’s why waiting on God is so difficult for most of us, especially those who say we are believers or people of faith. That’s also why many people quote a verse that is not in the Bible: “God helps those who help themselves.” That statement is an American ideology, but it’s not biblical at all. The statement speaks to the lack of faith by saying that God needs us to take charge to get things done.
But one thing is for sure: what we need to do is build our trust in God and be willing to wait on God’s timing, not our own. The right action at the right time often equals the right result.
Waiting on God is tough, but God’s timing is always best for us.
Remember: God may not show up when we call, but God is always on time.
