2 Kings 6:33  While Elisha was still saying this, the messenger arrived. And the king said, “All this misery is from the Lord! Why should I wait for the Lord any longer?” (NLT)

“Good things come to those who wait,” the old proverbs says. As one who has been waiting for a very long time for the local football team to play well enough to win another Super Bowl, I am less and less inclined to apply this saying to this delay. 

I wonder how many good things from God’s hand we have missed because we were unwilling to wait on him. Waiting is a discipline of obedience. Patience is a calming, peace-inducing virtue. One trip to the gym does not strengthen us. Regularly repeated visits will. When God says, “Wait,” pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable.

This is not an invitation to sloth. This is an expectation of deliberate trust. It is a posture of continuing confidence in what God has said. It is a deliberate and focused ease knowing God keeps his promises, empowers us to carry out his instructions, and brings about his purposes in his perfect timing. 

What are you waiting for from God? Lean into the coming adventure with a smile of certainty.

I will wait when God says, “Wait.”

Our Father, you are worth waiting for. Your timing is perfect. Your provision matches your guidance. You are withholding nothing I need for the moment I am in. I will get good at waiting. Amen.

Daily D – Isaiah 1:18-20

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land. But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
