Waiting for God
John 5:1-8,14; James 5:7-11
We spend, on average, an hour or more a day waiting for something. 3 years of waiting over a lifetime. What is important is what happens when we wait. Are we irritated or patient? What happens in our hearts when God wants us to wait? How do we respond to Him when He says “Wait”? God delays His blessings sometimes in order to examine what is in our hearts. Do you ever get tired of waiting for God? We need to understand that God controls the clock, not us. He is working in our waiting. God gives us strength whilst we wait (Isaiah 40:27-31). Often blessings cannot be received unless we go through the trial of waiting.
