Two friends have asked me to pray for them during their waiting time. They are frustrated. Scared. Restless. This is ground I know well.
Waiting is required in order to be Blessed. It’s a time of choosing whether to go our own way or wait for God’s direction.
His answers will come but never in our time. That’s the lesson. Trusting Him in His timing, enough to wait for it.
Corrie Ten Boom once said that God is like a good father who holds the ticket for his child until it’s time to board the train. God doesn’t tell us what to do until it’s time to do it. Until then, His answer is “Wait.”
So ask and wait. No answer IS an answer.
And still we wait. Remembering to trusting that we do have a Good Father who truly knows best.
