“For God alone my soul waits in silence;
From him comes my salvation.” (Psalm 62:1)
Patience equals perseverance in waiting. Ellie Conrad has composed her thoughts on what it is that the Lord is leading her through.
In a society where I have been raised on microwavable food and credit cards, instant gratification has been a major part of my life. Needless to say, patience is something that I’ve had to work on during my Christian walk. It doesn’t help that the only thing I’ve been hearing in my prayers lately is, “Wait.”
So, I’ve learned to wait.
And it’s hard. I want to see the fruits of my labor in prayer. I want to see the salvation of my loved ones. I want to see chains broken. I want to see the captives set free. I want to see Christ Jesus establish his kingdom on the earth!
But I wait, and I trust in his faithfulness and his time, because his ways are higher than mine. And, as our loving Heavenly Father, he gives us peace and the grace we need to wait.
