Waaait For It… Waaaaait For It

There it is!

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6

In this verse, Paul states that at the time of Jesus’ death we were still powerless. I understand that to mean when we were under the law before Christ took our sins upon Himself, knowing we were powerless to gain our own forgiveness. But, God knew, and in His own perfect timing, He provided His free gift of grace for us.

We all struggle with God’s timing; we’re impatient and want our prayers answered right away, in the way we want them answered. But God—loving parent that He is—knows what’s best and grants our requests when He knows they will accomplish what His plan requires (and usually what’s best for us). In the meantime, all we have to do is love Him and keep our minds and hearts set on Him. Our wants and desires are usually not as important as we think they are, and our impatience is a human trait, not a godly one.

Focus on God—be patient—and watch what happens. Good things come to those who wait on the Lord expecting His very best.
