Wait for the Lord
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:14, niv
Throughout the Bible, we are given examples of those who waited and were blessed, as well as those who refused to wait and suffered the consequences. For instance:
Abraham had to wait for the birth of Isaac; he grew so impatient, he tried to help God out and had Ishmael instead. His impatience delayed God’s blessing for another fourteen years and produced turmoil that exists to this day.
Joshua had to wait seven days as he obediently marched around Jericho before God rewarded his patience and brought the walls down.
David, an anointed king, waited fourteen years in exile before God rewarded his patience by placing him on the throne as the greatest king of Israel. From personal experience he testified, “I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
