Have you ever had to wait for something? I mean, wait for something you know is already settled, a sure promise you just don't yet have in hand?
We probably all can relate. Don't we pray as we have been told—asking, seeking, knocking—with the promise from the Lord that we will receive, find, or have opened to us? Yet, we find ourselves waiting.
We've been told that when we ask in His Name—His character/will—that our prayers will be heard and answered. But, He didn't give us a when. And so we wait.
Waiting is not easy—not for our children and not for us. But the one thing that really helps us wait is remembering Who we are waiting on—our Father.
Isn't it worth all the waiting to receive the answer of His embrace?
Wait and hope for and expect the Lord;
be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring.
Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.
Psalm 27:14 (AMP)
