The Patience to Follow
In one business I worked in for years, their unofficial motto was, "DO something, even if it's wrong." They equated waiting with sitting around doing nothing.
We are like that sometimes. We think DOing something is proactive; but that waiting is passive.
But waiting on God is not passive - it is active. Faith in action is often found by waiting on God. Trust-building is often found by waiting on God. Good news sharing is often obtained by waiting on God.
Faith in action ....
Trust building ...
Good news sharing ...
All these are active reflections of our walk with God. Waiting on Him is hard work, but He rewards those who willingly do such labor in trust and faith.
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
Psalm 40:1 NIV
