Hurry Up and…Wait?
“Blessed is the man that heareth Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors.” - Proverbs 8:34
Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-tock. We twiddle our thumbs. We watch the clock. Is this what God means for us to do when He tells us to wait on Him? Sometimes, but not always.
When you sit down in a restaurant and someone approaches your table to take your order, what do you call this person? A waiter. Does that mean he spends his time doing nothing? Not if he wants a job! He is to be busy serving you. In the same way, we are to be busy in our waiting upon the Lord.
Waiting on God involves longing for the Lord, listening to the Lord, looking to Him, and living for Him. If you do this type of waiting, you will receive His power, provision, and peace.
