i will wait

this has been on my heart lately.  do you often feel like the Lord is constantly telling you to wait?  or maybe it feels more like He is holding out on you.  But that's not how God works.  He asks us to wait. 

Wait, for His timing is perfect. 

Wait, for He knows better.

Wait, for He is Sovereign.

Wait, for He is faithful.

"I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." Lamentations 3:24

"But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me." Micah 7:7

"LORD, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God." Psalm 38:15

Whatever you are asking God for, keep asking, but wait.  Listen for His still, soft voice and wait. He will answer.

Shane and Shane's album, Psalms, might have been the first Christian CD I ever owned.  And it is still one of my favorites.  It's like hearing the Word of God poured over me.  Here is "The Waiting Room".  Click the play button below to hear it. 

i will run when i cannot walk
i will sing when there is no song
i will pray when there is no prayer
i will listen when i cannot hear
sitting in the waiting room of silence
waiting for that still soft voice i know
offering my words up to the rooftop to Your heart
trusting that this closet's where You are
Lord i know if i change my mind
You will change my heart in time
Sovereign Lord this time's from You
so i sit in the waiting room of silence
cause its all about You
i will fight when i cannot feel
i will trust when You dont seem real
i will tell when i cannot speak
i will step when i cannot see
