“All of us will wait passively, or we'll wait expectantly. A passive person hopes something good will happen and is willing to sit around waiting to see if it does. After a short time, he gives up, saying, "That’s it! I've waited and waited and nothing's happened." The passive person has a lot of wishbone but not much backbone!
The expectant person, on the other hand, is hopeful, believing the answer is just around the corner, due to arrive any minute. His belief is not a passive thing. His heart is full of hope, expecting his problem to be solved at any moment. He wakes up every morning expecting to find his answer. He may wait and wait, but suddenly what he’s been waiting for happens.”
Excerpt from Joyce Meyer
Nobody likes to wait. Waiting in traffic or in a check-out line at the grocery store on other people is tough. But isn't waiting on God is even tougher? The Bible tells us that there is going to be a change “in the waiting”. They that wait on the Lord shall renew “their” strength! The change is not in what’s happening around you, the change is IN YOU!
Are you passive or expectant? It’s time to rise up, to soar like an eagle; to run and not get weary. It’s time to see the deliverance of the Lord. Are you ready? Wait for it…
