What Are You Waiting For?

Psalm 40:1–5

Additional Scripture Readings: Psalm 130:5–6; Jude 20

We wait for everything. For the dryer to finish. For our husbands to get home. Waiting to become married. For the phone to ring. For the baby to wake. For the mail to come. For a car to pull up, returning our child safely home. For a job. For answers to prayer.

With so much experience, we’re remarkably unskilled at waiting well. Waiting seems to us a colossal waste of time.

But the fact is that while we are waiting, God is working. To move us where he wants us to be. To readjust the lives of others so that his ultimate desires will be fulfilled. To bring about what will make us eventually Christlike, though not necessarily immediately comfortable.

What are you waiting for? And more to the point, how well are you waiting for it?

  • I can't be waiting on anything but my self because i am most definitely. Need to get a move on in every area of my life with christ. Because he is the one and only God that gives us the way of life.

  • Years ago as a young 8 year old child. I would go to church with my grandparents, come home and find as many children in my neighborhood who didn't go to church, invite them to come to hear me preach. I would mimic the preachers sermon , collect an offering, save it until next Sunday so that after the service I would have treats for them coming, this went on for a while.I loved the word of God, and was amused by His  GREATNESS, I wanted to share it with all my friends. When I turned 15 years of age I stop going to church and That's when Satan had his way with me. He tried to killed me with drugs, and thugs and gangsters. But I was a mother and all I could think of is how to get back to God, not sure that He would except me back.But I loved my babies so much I had to get back to God. I went to church every time they had a service, a meeting, choir rehearsal, bible study. I cleaned up the bathrooms every week in the church. I loved them so much and knew that I needed God to protect them so they wouldn't go through what I went through. I prayed for their salvation and waited on God to deliver them, to save their souls. I got angry at times because it seem like they weren't listening but I remembered when I didn't listen I waited and prayed and fast and prayed and waited, shut in and cried out to God and He heard my cry and fulfilled my needs. I needed my children to be saved. I'm still praying and waiting for some of my grandchildren, siblings and family members to let go and let God. While waiting I'm believing God for their soul salvation. Pray with me while I wait.

  • Blessing Teri,

    one thing I have learned as being a mother is that, it takes God, humility, patience, peace, and perseverance. That is what keep us moving forward and never stopping at our dreams, visions, and goals. i love the story of balaam, and the donkey. It teaches you two things that if God do not want you to leave and then you will not, without his approval. Two, he will use anything to rebuke, correct, and speak his word to us. When we are to blind to see...
