Waiting Is Not For Wimps!

waiting 2David wrote in Psalm 59:9, “O my Strength, I will watch for You, for You, O God, are my fortress.” What strikes me is the first part. He’s watching for his strength to show up! He didn’t say the Lord gave him strength at that moment, but David knew his God would strengthen him when it came time to act.
Saul sent men to watch David’s house in order to kill him. While at home, David is telling us that he was at peace – God was his fortress – because he knew his God would strengthen him when it came to hightail it out of there.
Jesus sheep listen to Jesus and then follow when He tells them to act, not before. He tells us the “what” and the “when” to act, at which time the Spirit will strengthen us.
Waiting is hard, but moving before Jesus instructs us to ends in complete failure. Make no mistake, waiting is not for wimps. It takes faith to wait. His timetable, not ours, is always perfect. Wait on Jesus to say, “Go!” and then the strength to go will come.
