“…the LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the Soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly…for the LORD will not cast off forever, though He causes grief, yet He will show compassion…” Lamentation 3:25-26, 31-32 NKJV, italics and emphasis mine
Our microwave, Concorde, bullet train, ATM, pressure cooker, instant coffee, OF internet generation has lost the most important character—ability to wait. As a teachers of faith, we are also guilty of teaching faith is NOW, we forget faith goes with patience–endurance, persistence, fortitude (Hebrews 6:11-12; James 1:3).
We can wait upon the Lord as the waiter waits on the table for orders (serve God) or as a person waiting for the transport at bus/train station (to be served/saved by God). Other translation use the word “trust” in place of “wait”…either way we wait quietly, no murmuring or complains; if you have to speak, utter words of praise and adoration for what He’s done.
