Seasons of waiting are full of what seems to be wasted time. But, what if we have the wrong perspective? When you think about it, thinking God is wasting time is silly when you remember HE is the one who created it in the first place.
When we are in a season of waiting, we are given an opportunity to deepen our understanding of God’s faithfulness and love. It is also in seasons of waiting where our faith is challenged and what is in our hearts is truly revealed. Instead of enduring the season of waiting, what if we embraced the one who created the season in the first place?
When you are standing in faith during a time of waiting, it is important to remember God’s faithfulness. When we have our focus set on the things of heaven we can see God is not a man that he can lie and we can also see that God does everything out of the abundance of his love.
If God gave us what we wanted all the time, believe it or not many things would be detrimental to us and everyone around us. Do you remember a time thanking God for not giving you what you wanted? Yeah, me too.
God loves us so much that he doesn’t give us something until the time is right. Rather than enduring the wait, understand it is preparation done out of the abundance of his love.
