Waiting on God

“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;”
Psalms 130:5 ESV

          In a world where everything is only a click away, impatience is becoming an epidemic. Emails, texts, and social media seem to demand a near immediate response from us and we expect the same from others. How can we recapture the art of waiting upon the Lord?

          When tempted to turn stones into bread Jesus was being tempted to move ahead of God. Jesus recognized the spirit's guidance in his wilderness trial and would not deliver himself from the place providence had seen fit to lead him.

          Jesus was determined to wait upon his Father to Sustain him physically and spiritually. He revealed this when he declared that man does not live by bread alone.

          Will you trust God to meet your needs in his ways and in his timing? It is tempting to run ahead of God to satisfy our perceived necessities or to deliver ourselves from difficulty. When we choose to wait on God we are demonstrating faith in his wise fatherly care. He alone knows what will satisfy us. He cares for us too much to withhold any good thing. It is safe to wait on this God.

Still Seeking His Face,
Pastor Andrew
