Isaiah 30:18. “But GOD ’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you. He’s gathering strength to show mercy to you. GOD takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.”
Sometimes I don’t quite get humans; we like to forge our own way despite knowing we’re more than likely to crash. We blunder ahead instead of going to God whom as today’s verse points out is just waiting for us so He can be gracious and merciful towards us.
God is a gentleman so He isn’t going to force anything on us not even blessings. However He is so hopeful that He’ll get to lavish His awesome blessings on us that as He waits, He perfects them.
Waiting on the Lord can often be a trying experience, but it is so worth it! Wait on God and see; He is perfecting a custom made blessing just for you.
Dear Lord, Instead of going my own way teach me to come to You, to wait on You, to rely on You. Not just because of Your amazing blessings but because Your way is best. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
