It was Dietrich Bonhoeffer who said, “The blessedness of waiting is lost on those who cannot wait, and the fulfillment of promise is never theirs. They want quick answers to the deepest questions of life and miss the value of those times of anxious waiting, seeking with patient uncertainties until the answers come. They lose the moment when the answers are revealed in dazzling clarity.”
Learning to wait is a lost art. It has been said, “Be aware of what season you are in, and give yourself the grace to be there.” But I think God says it best, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength (Is.40:31).” That is a promise that God will fulfill in each of our lives!
