The Blessing is in the Waiting

So often we beg and plea for the blessing to hurry up and arrive, not considering that the blessing is in the waiting. When we are forced to wait, we begin to hope and our faith kicks in with the anticipation of eventually reaping what we have sown. Romans 8:25 tells us that,“If we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Furthermore,Waiting for faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1). For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? (Romans 8:24) Exercising faith while waiting for God’s best, is necessary because doing our own thing can have dire consequences not only for us, but for those around us.One thing we must come to realize is that our concept of time differs greatly from Gods concept of time, thus our timetables will always conflict. Moses describes the timelessness of God in Psalm 90:4 when he says, For a thousand years in Your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
