This very minute, I’m standing in long, long line to renew my car tags. Boy, it’s an exercise in patience.
Well, as I wait, I’m reminded of how we often have to wait for most everything in which we pray. Sure, sometimes God just blesses us instantaneously, but most times we simply have to wait.
I’m not so sure the problem is in the fact we must wait or more in the way we wait.
As I stand here in line, some people are waiting with relaxed smiles knowing soon they will be at the front of the line. They have enough faith and experience with the system to know their time is coming before long.
As you can imagine, there are also those standing to one side, grunting, rolling their eyes and one person is even complaining! Gee, like those of us behind her need to hear all that.
Sounds like us sometimes, doesn’t it?Click To Tweet
Give me the discernment to know when to wait being still and when to wait in productive diligence. Lord, teach us how to wait on that spouse, job, deliverance, move of the Spirit, ministry direction, provision, etc. Lord teach us to wait knowing we can count on your system and soon we’ll be at the front of the line.
Well, lookie there! I’m next in line to get my tags! Go figure.
