Are you waiting for?
We wait all the time.
We wait in lines in the stores.
We wait in traffic for lights to change or some obstruction to be cleared.
We wait in doctor’s offices.
We have to wait our turn here and there and everywhere.
Even God asks us to “wait”. We are to wait on Him. Wait in prayer. Wait in faith, expectantly. We are to wait and not faint.
But . . . there are two kinds of ‘waiting’. The kind of waiting where we are simply biding our time for something to change, someone to come, or our turn to ____________________ fill in the blank. Then there is the kind of waiting that is fully active – waiting on someone else, helping to fulfill a need, like those who ‘wait’ tables.
I fully believe that the later is the true sense of the word ‘wait’ that the Lord is speaking to us. It is an active waiting.
Being fervent in our prayers.
Being active in our churches.
Being active in our communities.
Speaking forth His Word, His Truth, His principles, taking a stand for righteousness.
Sharing our testimonies boldly in order to help bring encouragement and hope and restoration to others.
Sharing His Love with those around us, those He strategically places along our path.
“…and when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8b
Abba Father, I want to be one of those who are truly waiting on You. Serving You, actively involved where You send me and how You instruct me as I am awaiting Your return, fervent in my prayers, strong in Your Love. I desire that You find me faithful in my waiting upon You. Show me what You would have me do, Lord, I am Your willing handmaiden, ready to do Your Will as I wait on you and for you, in Jesus Name, amen.
