Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

I hate to wait. I have never been a patient person and rushing the process to make something happen faster is something I’m guilty of frequently. The Bible challenges us to wait on the Lord multiple times in scripture, in this verse the word wait is mentioned twice. I think the Lord knows we need constant reminders to wait on Him because he knows it doesn’t come naturally. When an answer we need doesn’t come quickly, worry and doubt creep in. Wait a bit longer and it seems the heavens are brass and we often cycle from doubt to panic, maybe even giving up completely that the Lord will come through. That waiting has a precious purpose though.

The things in our heart come to the surface, our level of trust is exposed as well as our devotion to the Lord. Choices to believe an enemy who speaks lies, forfeit our future victories and fold or hang onto God and watch HIM be faithfully victorious over and over again. The Lord will always allow a space of dependency and trust as uncomfortable and scary as it may be. The place is an invitation to trust Him deeper, to search the word for encouragement, to set your heart on serving Him come what may.

To choose truth when your feelings don’t follow, to choose trust when there’s no signs of hope and to bless God at all times. That kind of decision only happens when we have to wait on a win that only God can provide. So, no matter what you’re facing, take heart in the waiting knowing it’s an invitation to an intrusion. Don’t forfeit your future or walkout on a victory just because you got impatient. God’s will for your life means submitting to his timing. Surrender to patient enduring with the promise He will strengthen you as He proves His faithfulness time and time again.
