I don’t like to wait. To be completely honest, I find it especially difficult waiting on God because he has such an unusual take on time. So, I get impatient waiting on the things He’s promised to come to pass. I’d rather to run determinedly ahead so I can feel like I’ve accomplished something. Then God spoke to me, “Waiting is an accomplishment.” One simple sentence clicked everything into place for me.
I know that when I wait on Him, I am refreshed, not harried. He can see things that I can’t – so He makes His decision based on what’s best for me. Even though I long to soar, waiting for my wings is accomplishing discipline in my spirit. I don’t enjoy being an eaglet who hobbles around trying to make it happen in my own tired strength. I’d rather soar with God’s fresh strength. I long to run without getting tired and walk without lagging behind. So I choose to wait on Him with longing in my heart, anticipating the day when I can leap off that mountaintop and soar with His fresh strength.
