I’ll wait in my sorrow. I’ll wait in my pain
I’ll wait in the sunrise. I’ll wait when it rains
I’ll wait in the storms. I’ll wait when I cry
I’ll wait in the evening. I’ll wait when I’m tired
I’ll wait when I’m lonely. I’ll wait when I’m blessed
I’ll wait when I’m weak. I’ll wait to find rest
I know if I wait like an eagle I’ll fly
He’ll make me to walk. He’ll make me to rise
I know if I wait patience He will give me
Then all of my troubles will soon disappear
So I will wait. I’ll wait for my King
Because I know my Lord controls everything
I know that His timing is never late
Whenever I pray I’ve learned to wait
I hate going to the doctor. It’s not that I am afraid of seeing him, or worried anything is wrong other than the obvious on that day, I just don’t like going. It’s not the blood work or the exam that bother me. It’s the waiting. You wait in the first waiting room, then you wait in the exam room. Sitting around waiting makes you have patience, Maybe that’s why we are called Patients!
But waiting for God is different. The Bible assures us that we will be rewarded if we learn to wait in the Lord. Some people are impatient and think they need their answer right now. They receive their reward and are done. But those who are patient get a bigger reward. David tells us that when we wait patiently, God inclines to us. Think about that for a minute. He leans over and listens intently to us. His ear is right there ready to hear. Plus, James tells us that our trials teach us patience and take us to perfection, or maturity in Christ. You can have your answers right away. I’ll choose to wait on the Master’s timing. He knows my needs before I’ve even asked. If we have to wait, there’s a reason and a plan. We grow in the wait!
Psalm 40:1-2 King James Version
40 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
