Waiting

This epidemic has created a difficult time for us as we continue to wait.  Why is waiting challenging?  Because we want to be in control.  If there is a problem in our lives, we want to fix it.  If we can’t fix it, we want God to take care of it—the sooner the better.  And if the Lord doesn’t work according to our timetable, it’s hard to wait.  To be in a situation where all you can do is wait is a powerless feeling.

In Psalm 25 the psalmist finds himself helpless to fix his troubled circumstances.  So he turns to God in faith, praying, “Make your ways known to me, Lord; teach me your paths.  Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; I wait for you all day long.” 

The psalmist does more than passively wait for his circumstances to improve—he waits for the Lord.  Waiting is an opportunity to trust God, to learn from Him, to see the Lord go beyond what you could do—not merely in fixing your situation but doing something better—accomplishing His good purpose in your life.  Like the psalmist, pray that the Lord would guide you in his truth and teach you what you need to know in this time.  And let’s see what the Lord will do as we wait on Him.

Looking forward,

Pastor Ron Prosise
