Waiting


I waited
patiently
for the
Lord.

Psalm 40:1





Waiting is difficult, for waiting requires patience,
and patience is a rare virtue. Many of us are lacking
the strength we so desire, but God gives complete power
for every task He calls us to perform. Waiting--keeping
yourself faithful to His leading--this is the secret of
strength.

God has a purpose in all of His delays. Victory is then
to be won by standing still and quietly waiting. It re-
quires much more courage to stand and wait and still not
lose heart or lose hope.

...after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:13
