Wait On The Lord

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. (Psalm 27:14) 
Dr. Seuss has a book called, Oh, the Places You’ll Go

In it, there’s a part that reads,
“You can get so confused, that you’ll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on for miles cross weirded wild space, headed I fear, toward a most useless place. The Waiting Place… for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a yes or no, or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.”
It goes on to say, that eventually you will escape the waiting. 
No one likes to wait.

We want faster internet speeds. 
We don’t want to wait in long lines.
We don’t want to wait for our dinner to arrive.
We want what we want, and we want it yesterday. 
But, God tells us that we are to be strong and wait for the Lord! 

We are to take heart and be confident.
In our patience, we will see the goodness of the Lord.
Isn’t that just the opposite of what our nature wants to do?
Are you waiting on something from God? You can trust Him that His timing is perfect and His ways are good!
What might He be wanting to teach you today during this time He has you set apart?
When I read this devotion I felt their were many who could relate to this right now. There are so many unknowns and so much waiting. Trust in God’s timing. It’s better to wait a while and have things fall into place than to rush and have things fall apart. Remember, stress will make you believe everything has to happen right now, Faith reassures you that everything will happen in God’s timing.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
