“For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!” Isaiah 64:4 NLT

The Hebrew translation of the word ‘to wait’ often is used to mean binding together, or to intertwine. In other words, many times when we speak of children of God waiting on God, it is not a process that is to be undertaken in His absence.

If for example you are at a coffee shop waiting for a friend to arrive, you are not waiting with them, you are waiting FOR them. If you love the Lord however, and are waiting on Him, be it for His promises to come be fulfilled, for particular needs to be met according to His will and word, for whatever reason you wait — you wait IN Him. You are waiting WITH Him.

In Galatians 2:20, Paul gives us a profound revelation on how to wait: ”I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith OF the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.“ Child of God, in a world of instant gratification that demands all things to happen and to happen now, God’s people are a waiting people because the rewards of the fullness of time exceed anything you may be able to get through your own labors.

We live by the faith OF the son, and Him IN US enabling us to persevere and to stand strong where our own strength may fail. In our being bound to Him, the grace He imparts allows us to do what our own strength may not. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this word. I thank you for the precious gift of your spirit that enables me the grace to do hard things with ease. I have disciplined myself to seek for purpose in every waiting season and I do so by drawing from the strength of Christ in me to the glory of your name. Amen!
