Waiting for God’s Time, Part 5
“I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in His word do I hope.” Psalm 130:5 KJV
Waiting times are also times for gathering things together. As we gather, we look at what God is teaching us and revealing to our hearts.
We gather together our thoughts and weigh them against the truth of God’s word. We gather together our feelings and make sure they are not taking us in a wrong direction. We gather together our desires and make sure we are not trying to force God’s timing.
In our waiting times we are also to gather together our remembrances. God wants us to be filled with memories of His goodness.
We are to gather together the times when God has been faithful to us in our needs, when He has kept us from falling during times of temptation, and when He has comforted us in our trials. He also wants us to remember the times when He has blessed us with favor, when He has smiled upon us and been gracious to us, and when He has brought us unexpected joys. He wants us to remember that He will continue to be to us in the future all that He has been to us in the past.
