No ear heard, no eye seen, a God like you who works for those who wait for him.
One of my daughter's favorite words is "wait" She says it all the time at random moments, and most of the time we are not sure what we are waiting for. The word "wait" can just suddenly burst from her mouth. God has called me to wait so many times, there are areas in my life that I'm still waiting on. It use to feel like a random, harsh word from him, but now I am seeing that when God calls me to wait it is because He is working for me in ways that are amazing and undeniably beautiful. I may not be able to see all that he is doing or hear about his handiwork at the time, but when I am able to wait on him, the end result is incredible. When I am able to wait and listen to his gentle, soothiing voice, the reward is far beyond anything imaginable.
Is there something you are waiting for? Does it feel like it's never going to happen? Does God keep repeating the word "wait"? Is he prodding you to rest in his wait and enjoy this very moment, while he works for you? What is the promise you are waiting for? Do not let impatience knock at your door, just wait and watch for the timing of your God.
