The Sweet Fruits Of Waiting8:00 AM
The waiting period is the most trying, most painful and will always be the longest period in a person's life---no matter how short it may be.
The Sweet Fruits Of WaitingWaiting will reveal our character. It will teach us patience, it will test our endurance, and will shake our faith.
The longer the waiting, the more we will appreciate and value that which we are waiting for once it has arrived.
In waiting for the Lord to answer your prayer, you will encounter His most deafening silence.
I have been waiting for God to answer my prayers. Some He has already given me, others He is still not revealing.
Although I admit that sometimes I want to rush things and I get impatient with Him, I know that He has my best intentions in mind.
I do not have a wise answer as to why He makes us wait. I don't want to put Him in a box because He is infinite for a reason. I may not understand His purpose but I know it is for the best. Besides,
isn't that why He's God and I'm human? If I understand Him, then we'll be equals.So as difficult as it may be, in my waiting, I choose to believe.
In my waiting, I choose to keep on serving Him. Sometimes in my service, I see His answer and I feel His love.
In my waiting, I choose to be happy because whether I am miserable or joyful, I'd still be waiting anyway. So why not wait in joy instead?
The waiting has made me wiser, although not as wise as one could be. At least now I know things I did not know before. People may be laughing at me because I seem to wait in vain, but that's alright. They are not the ones I made covenant with anyway. And I know that He who made His promises to me will surely deliver.
That is another great thing about waiting. Waiting has revealed to me the faithfulness of God that I would not have known had all my prayers been answered immediately.
Waiting may be painful
God would not have put me here if He thinks the other way is better for me.
I trust Him.
