AUGUST 29

His Timing or Ours?

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

Do you know the story of Joshua and how the wall of Jericho fell down after the Israelites marched around it once a day for six days, then seven times on the seventh day? Why not just walk around Jericho one time?

I think it was because God was testing their faith. God was teaching them that waiting time is not wasted time.

Isaiah 28:16b says, “He that believeth shall not make haste.” God is never in a hurry, like we are. We get upset when we miss a section in a revolving door! God is also never late. He knows what He is doing.

Do you know what our problem is? We’ve been around Jericho six times and we’re ready to quit. Say with the psalmist: “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him” (Psalm 62:5).

Are you single? Take comfort in knowing God knows your heart’s desire. Take courage in knowing God’s best is your purity. Though it may be hard to wait, God will honor your obedience.
