“What’s the rush?”

“What’s the rush?”

Isaiah 40:31But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”(KJV)

As I was out on errands one morning, I noticed several cars at a popular coffee shop waiting in line at a drive thru to place an order. Driving down the road further, I again noticed several vehicles waiting in line at an ATM machine.

I began to think about how much time a person spends waiting to get what they want.

We wait:

  • In line at fast food restaurants
  • Or inside of a restaurant, after we have placed our order with the server
  • In line to pay for our groceries
  • At the doctor’s or the dentist’s office
  • At a busy intersections for the light to change to green
  • For someone to pull out of a parking space that is close to the entrance of a store

Sometimes we wait patiently, and sometimes we become impatient when what or who we are waiting for is not there at the time we want it.

There is a difference between waiting for people, places or things, and waiting on God. When we wait for people, places or things, most of the time we can get what we want when we want it.

The difference when we wait on God, is God’s timing and His provision, and we don’t always get what we want when we want it. But “What’s the rush?”

I have often heard people make the statement “God may not be there when you want Him, but He’s always on time.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” (KJV)

God’s timing is always “perfect timing.” He is never too early, and He is never too late. Often times the problem that we have when we are waiting on God is, we want God to move when we want Him to move.

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (KJV)

Because He is a loving God and a concerned father, He always wants what’s best for His people.

Isaiah 40:31But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”(KJV)

Waiting on God has benefits that we can only get from Him:

  • He renews our strength
  • We mount up with wings that enable us to soar effortlessly
  • We do not get weary when we run
  • When we walk, we do not faint

Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” (KJV)

“Aba Father, thank you for the “perfect timing” that you have for your people. You are omniscient and know exactly what your people need, and when they should have it. We wait on you O God, with great expectations, in Jesus name, Amen!
