At some point in our lifetime, each of us will find ourselves in a waiting room. Before you can see your doctor you will spend time in the waiting room. Before surgery, you will find yourself in a waiting room, and one of the most frustrating things about the waiting room is you don’t know how long you will have to wait. Patience is a virtue and not all of us possess it yet. Society has groomed us to want and expect things now which tends to adversely affect our attitude while we are waiting.
God also has a waiting room. You might be in His waiting room today waiting on Him to answer your prayer or bring your dream into reality, but if we are to receive divine care, we must be willing to wait for only God knows the right time and place to meet your needs. You don’t get to know all the details of how and when God will show Himself in your life, but you must have faith that He will make Himself known to you. You must stand on His Word and trust Him because He knows the plans that He has for you, and sometimes to perfect His plan, you must spend time waiting. He will purify your motives if need be and humble you if necessary to make sure that when He does show up, you are in the position that you need to be in to receive all that He has for you.
Make good use of your time in God’s waiting room. Draw closer to Him; read His Word and pray that His will be done in your life. It’s better to wait on God than to get ahead of God and make something happen before it’s time. Your strength and your ability to handle what comes next can only be gained after spending time in God’s waiting room. So wait on the Lord and you will receive God’s promise to you right on time.
