Wait on the Lord

“I waited and waited and waited for God.
At last he looked, finally he listened.”
Psalm 40:1

*Waiting for the Lord can transform us into a people of growing faith

God answers prayers. This I believe in my heart because He has answered many of my prayers. I’ve learned that before He  responds He would make us wait for a while. The waiting game is a challenge for it tests our patience.

It would be nice if He answers right away but He wants to cultivate in us faith and perseverance. Believe it or not, God is interested in the development of our character. Consider it a good thing if you get through trials because such testing of faith develops perseverance so that in the future, we may be mature and complete. (James 1:2-4)

Wait on God and you will receive. Maybe not always the way you want it but in a manner He knows is best for you. He loves us so He wants us to be made in complete in Him. His promises are true.
