I have noticed that waiting is not necessarily a passive thing. While we wait…we prepare…the house is positioned for selling…our belongings are packed…in all things we assume the position. We wait but we have a sense of expectation. We anticipate the move.
As we have been waiting in our physical circumstances, I have been waiting in the promises of God. I have discovered that waiting in God is anything but passive. There is an active pursuit of the One who made the promises. There is a drawing near to my Hope and an abiding in Him in the word and in worship.
In the waiting there is a choice. I can fret because circumstances are not lining up as I would desire or as I believed they would OR I can fix my eyes upon the one made the promises and is faithful to keep them.
I have discovered a depth of joy and communion in the waiting that I have never before experienced and did not anticipate. I can truly say I would not change this time even if I could.
I am waiting…
Waiting is one of the great tests of the saints. Every patriarch had to endure waiting to receive the promises, and we will be no different. – Rick Joyner – Morningstar Ministries
