I don’t know about you but I hate waiting…
…but I think the worst part of waiting is knowing God is sovereign.
God knows what is best.
God sees the whole picture.
God has a divine plan.
I get all of that and I am extremely thankful for all of that. I praise God that He is sovereign. I worship God because He is…well…God. But I still hate waiting. So I think the worst part of this is my selfishness/sinfulness doing battle with my belief in a sovereign God. They run around in my heart fighting all the while I get torn on how to react when I find myself getting impatient. I want my way but I also want God’s way.
But the thing is…
…I can’t rush God. I can’t force God’s hand through bargaining or threats. God is going to do what God is going to do in God’s own time. So I need to get over myself and trust. I need to wait and see what God is going to do in my life. I need to understand that God’s plan is a perfect plan. I need to pray and ask for patience…
Loving God, you are in control. You have a plan and I am excited about that. But sometimes I can hardly wait to see what that plan is. I get impatient and try to bring about what I think is the plan. And when things don’t work out I get upset and angry. Almighty God, grant me patience to trust you. Grant me faith to wait on you. Grant me wisdom to teach others. God…you are mighty and I look forward to you displaying your glory. In the mean time I will wait. In Jesus name, Amen 🙂
