IN THE MEANTIMEPsalms 37:7 (CSB) Be silent before the LORD and wait expectantly for him…
Learning to wait on the Lord gives us a profound spiritual virtue. Waiting teaches us patience and trust. When we don’t know what to do, we wait. When God has not given directions as of yet, we wait.
So, if you’re in the “meantime” between your prayers and God’s answers…wait, be faithful, keep praying, keep watching, keep trusting! If you do, you won’t be disappointed. He won’t let you down. He hasn’t let you down. He’s doing everything to make your life ripen and flourish and come to completion in Him!
After centuries of waiting…He came the first time! Israel’s hope was realized, though their hearts were closed. And so, shall our HOPE of His coming be realized! Let us be sure that our hearts are open to him!
Let us ACTIVELY WAIT during the seasons of uncertainty, trouble, and fear, holding his hope in our hearts and lifting up our hope to a hope-deprived world!!
The composer said it so well…
“Teach me Lord to wait!!!
Down on my knees
Till in your own good time,
You answer my pleas,
Teach me not to rely on what others do,
But to wait in prayer for an answer from you.
They that wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength,
They shall mount up with wings as eagle.
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
So, teach me Lord, teach me Lord, to wait!!”
"Gather the fuel. Stir the embers. Fan the flame!!".
