Popular Gospel Songs…”While I’m Waiting”

 

If you’re like me, waiting on something is often difficult. We live in an instant world, built on a foundation of instant gratification. Things must happen or get resolved, and it has to happen NOW! This is especially true when we are in “crisis mode.”

But time is a different concept to the Lord. With Him, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day. (2 Peter 3:8). In this context, the Lord is talking about the time it takes for people to come to Him and His grace. He is patient with us, longsuffering, but not wishing for anyone to perish.

We need to learn this virtue of patience and apply it to the things in our lives. God is with us, watching out for us. That never changes. We must hold on to that thought as we hold on during a difficult challenge in life. He has plans which must be fulfilled and if that involves some discomfort or trial with us, we must let it be. God’s will is first, and it all works for our benefit if we truly love Him…
