I just had to share this with you!!!
I just finished listening to one of my favorite Bible teachers. She pointed out something that really spoke to my heart. Check out the following verse:
“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you … Blessed are all who wait for Him.” (Isaiah 30:18)
The words “longs” and “wait” are both translated from the same Hebrew word.
Think of something you are waiting for… something you keep praying about, something you keep asking Him for… You’re longing to see this thing happen.
God is, too.
He knows what He has up His sleeve. He knows the plan inside and out. He knows all the exciting twists and turns. He knows just how this thing is going to play out. It hasn’t escaped His notice. He’s working it out. He’s making all the preparations. Every time you trust Him it makes Him even more excited for the coming moment–the moment when all will be revealed, all will come together, all will make sense, all will be just as it is supposed to be.
God is longing and waiting for just the right time. He’s waiting right alongside you. You’re not alone in this “meantime.”
