Waiting for God’s Time, Part 3
“Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on Thee.” Psalm 25:21 KJV
Another aspect of waiting is expectation. Our waiting times are not meant to be times of heaviness and drudgery. Expectation is like the wind blowing away the clouds that would try to settle over our souls.
A man once built his home on a high hill. His back porch faced east. Each morning he would awake an hour before sunrise. He would shower, make himself a cup of coffee, and sit on his favorite rocking chair out on the back porch. In the darkness, he would quietly wait with expectation for the sun to come up and cast its brilliant, golden light across the landscape.
Faith is our back porch rocking chair. In it we rest with expectation for the light of God’s promises to dawn upon us. Faith keeps our heads lifted, our eyes focused, and our purpose clear.
