“I waited patiently for the Lord, and He turned to me and heard my cry for help. He brought me up from a desolate pit, out of the muddy clay, and set my feet on a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.”

Psalms 40:1-3 HCSB

Waiting…

Waiting…

Waiting…

Why does it always seem to take so long for God to answer? Doesn’t He hear me and understand that I need help NOW?!

Certainly, God and I are on different timetables, and it is hard to remember that HIs is perfect while mine is, well, let’s just say it’s unfortunate.

My own timing is much like that dream where you are trying fiercely to get away from someone chasing you, but your feet are caught in quicksand that keeps them from moving. You wake with a desperate sense of urgency to escape.

The dream only tells half the story though. This world with all its trappings does seek to pull us down into a quagmire, but we are not without hope. The God of the universe, at just the right time, reaches down with His strong right arm and pulls us out of the entanglement. He’s never early and never late. His timing is impeccable.

Wait for it. 🚦
