"Wait" might just as well be spelled "weight" for some of us. For those of us who are easily impatient, waiting is a heavy burden. But, good things come to those who wait.
"Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD." (Psalm 27.14)
Waiting for the sake of waiting is not necessarily a virtue. Worthwhile waiting is waiting for Yahweh. Waiting for Him, we are promised, results in strength and courage. Thus, our quiet times alone with Him are vitally important. Out of these times comes the strength and courage to take bold and timely action; to do His will instead of our own. Waiting for Him is not inaction, but rather character-building inner action. Much of His will and desire is as much about our inner transformation as the actual work He has for us to do. And that process cannot be rushed.
Wait. The right thing at the wrong time amount to the wrong thing. Let Him build strength and courage into your life as He prepares you for His timely work.
