What Are You Waiting For?

Psalm 40:1–5

Additional Scripture Readings: Psalm 130:5–6; Jude 20

We wait for everything. For the dryer to finish. For our husbands to get home. For the phone to ring. For the baby to wake. For the mail to come. For a car to pull up, returning our child safely home. For a job. For answers to prayer.

With so much experience, we’re remarkably unskilled at waiting well. Waiting seems to us a colossal waste of time.

But the fact is that while we are waiting, God is working. To move us where he wants us to be. To readjust the lives of others so that his ultimate desires will be fulfilled. To bring about what will make us eventually Christlike, though not necessarily immediately comfortable.

What are you waiting for? And more to the point, how well are you waiting for it?
