"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD." - Psalm 27:13-14
We live in "hurry up" world today. We choose "fast food" restaurants because we want quick meals. We pay the extra fee to have the faster downloads or "FIOS" for our internet activity. Patience is a rare quality in this "get it now" age. We may not wait for men but will we... wait for God?
David was confident in the Lord's goodness. Such assurance caused him to commit his life, challenges, struggles and battles into the hands of the Lord. Yet, after he committed everything to the Lord, he was left waiting. The Lord works wonders, but he does so in his time. David's son Solomon wrote years later in Ecclesiastes 3:11 "He has made everything beautiful in its time." David may not have waited for men but he most certainly waited for God.
Are you confident in the goodness of God? Do you believe that he plans to provide for you as you follow him? Then be patient my friend. God is all about making everything beautiful in HIS TIME. You may not wait for men but for heaven's sake... wait for God.
