What is it that causes us to be impatient: intolerant or anxious about a delay? WAITING is nothing to dread or dislike and serves a great purpose in our spiritual lives. Have you ever thought about the positive side to waiting? Perhaps, if we focused on the benefits, we would gain a greater appreciation for waiting. We could look at it like an art, which must learned in order to be perfected.
I often think of those who farm and have great respect for them because, they seem to have an understanding of two (2) very important life-principles: 1. They know how to properly sow and reap, and 2. They are familiar with the times and seasons of cultivating and are patient during the process of harvesting. If farmers were to choose (to be impatient and) NOT wait for the right time to harvest their crops, they would suffer a great loss and we too would be affected and left without produce and grains for our daily sustenance.
I really want to learn to wait in a way that pleases God, how about you, Is that your prayer?
If you desire to learn to wait and especially to wait on God, read the modern-day Psalm below. It is my sacred song or prayer request to God asking Him to teach me to wait on Him; it too can be your sacred song or prayer. If I learn to wait on God, I can avoid being anxious and instead I can rest in Him without a care for they have been cast upon Him. Now that's what I call being cool, calm and collected in God!
