Waiting on God


God always fulfills His promise, but He does it in His perfect timing, not our perfect timing. In Genesis 12, when Abraham was 75, God promised to make him into a great nation. It was through this promise that God would establish His covenant with Abraham. What was the covenant? The Messiah would come from the line of Abraham, through his son Isaac. We finally see Abraham’s promised son arrive in Genesis 21. It was 25 years between the time God made His promise to Abraham and He delivered Abraham’s son, Isaac. God’s word does not return void. If He says He will do it, He will do it. Unfortunately, we often become impatient while we wait on God. There are three ways we usually respond when God answers our prayers. When He says YES, we rejoice. When He says NO, we weep. But often, He says WAIT. It is this word most of us have the hardest time obeying. Yet, it is during this waiting period God is working on us, refining us, preparing us, until we finally hear those words from God, “GO!”
