But I’m too impatient to wait. I am too busy to wait. I just don’t want to wait. So why should I wait?
Sometimes our lives are put on “hold” for a season. For some people, that period of time is meant for growth and learning. For others, God is developing character within. But for others, God is testing them.
Job went through such a time of testing (Job 35:13). His suffering was so extreme that we cannot imagine it. The testing was meant to reaffirm and strengthen his commitment to God. This was a painful waiting time for him.
Maybe your waiting time extends for several years. Remember: Waiting is not wasting. God is building you in ways you may not grasp. Trust in his wisdom and faithfulness.
Even when the pain continues – wait. You may be confused – but wait. Wait on God’s plan for your life.
