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.
-Psalm 27: 13-14
Much is said in the Bible about waiting for the Lord. Because that's a core characteristic of this life we are privileged to live. Waiting for God's timing to unfold a situation seems to be our constant condition.
Never before have I realized this more than now. Several matters of extreme importance are hanging in the balance for me, my family and my friends. I look back now, with the 20/20 vision of years lived, and see how often before we have been in similar situations. We have never been forsaken, but the waiting is so difficult. The truth is, when each of the things that we're knock knock knocking on heaven's door about today are finally resolved in God's timing and in His way, there will be something else.
I ask you today...what are you waiting for? What situation in your life has you running around in circles, wringing your hands and wondering what to do? Has it drawn you to your prayer corner where you can blow it all out to the One who cares the most? It's the most important action we can take...and all too often it's the last thing we do. Remember...Peace is a Person.
Whatever is beating you down today, take heart. We will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. But first we have to ... wait.
