His Timing Is Perfect
The Lord is wonderfully good to those who wait for him and seek him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.Lamentations 3:25-26
In a fast-moving culture such as ours, in which time is measured in nanoseconds and sound bites, waiting in traffic or in the doctor’s office longer than we had planned can mess up our schedule. We can become irritated when things don’t happen according to our packed planned agenda. And we can become just as frustrated with God when he doesn’t seem to answer our prayers as soon as we’d hoped or move in a needy situation according to our timetable.
Sometimes we pray and give our requests to God and then turn and run out of the prayer closet before we have taken time to be aware of his answer. But this passage tells us the great benefit of learning to wait on the Lord—both waiting for his timing and just waiting in his presence, spending moments being quiet and waiting to hear his “still, small voice.”
God is wonderfully good to those who wait for him and continue to seek him.
Though waiting is not that easy but as we continue to wait for him He will begin to work on us and bring out the best in us.
LORD, quiet my heart and mind so that I am willing to wait on you, not with grumbling and frustration but with hope and assurance that you do everything in your perfect timing. Give me patience, and help me to look for your answers to the requests I make of you. And increase my faith that you are working, even when I must wait for your answer
