The nation of Israel awaited the coming of a Savior and Redeemer who would finally fix all the messes we’ve made. Advent waiting.
Most of us hate the word wait. It’s a four-letter word that stirs up all sorts of negative emotions. Waiting ranks right up there with a root canal. Necessary, perhaps, but not at all fun. And waiting is often a hope-killer.
When you read from the Prophets and Psalms, you may be struck with how much of them come from a posture of waiting.
We all know great churches simply don’t exist without a price, nor without waiting for God. My whole life I’ve been impatient. I have often looked for ways in the past to find that golden shortcut to provide the perfect product but just not at such high a price.
When you are in a time of waiting on God – Do what you know to do today. Take initiative towards change you know you should or hope to make.
In the Advent season we learn about waiting. Waiting is painful; it brings anxiety.
