Thought for the week

"Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him..." - Psalm 37:7a
Isa 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
I don’t know about you but I hate to wait. Do you hate to wait? You know you can go and have an appointment at a doctor’s office, say at 9:00 am. You get in there, sit down, 5, 10, 15 minutes go by, and they haven’t called you. You go over to the magazine rack and start looking around and all you find is a 2005 Psychology Today and it may be another 30-45 minutes, or even an hour before they get to you. I hate that.
I also don’t like to wait in long lines at restaurants, being stuck in traffic during rush hour, or being put on hold by a computer. In our culture, waiting is a waste of time. But one thing’s for sure: What we need to do is to trust God and be willing to do His will, in His timing, not our own, for the right action at the right time equals the right result.
So, what does it really mean to “wait on the Lord?” ¯ I’ll tell you one thing, it doesn’t mean just to stand still and do nothing, that’s not the idea. I know that is the way we wait in many areas of our life. We have to stand still and be quiet and not do anything. The word ‘wait’ in the original Hebrew means, “to be bound like a rope¯ or twisted¯ or bonded together.” So to wait on the Lord means that you trust Him, that you humble yourself and rely on His strength, that you obey His word and commands. It conveys all those meanings. Sometimes it’s very difficult to wait on the Lord for things to happen, for things to take place, but if we will do those things, if we will trust the Lord and if we will humble ourselves under His mighty hand and make sure we obey His will, then we will be blessed. Waiting on God is tough, but God’s timing is always best for us and for others

I don't like to wait either, but I've found "the Lord makes all things beautiful in HIS time". Thanks, Ken.
