Praying With Jesus: Waiting…

Yesterday was one of the most important days of the church year when we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. Tomorrow is another important day, Easter, when we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. But today…

We wait.

But as for me, I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.
(Micah 7:7)

Waiting isn’t easy. Today, we expect to get everything fast. Amazon is shipping same-day now. The new Boom Supersonic plane will soon be flying people from New York to London in a little over 3hrs flying at 2.2x the speed of sound. In places with gigabit internet connections, you can download a 2hr HD movie in 25 seconds.

We want things fast and when it takes too long, we tend to lose our patience. When I worked in online marketing, the rule was that if a web page took longer than 5 seconds to load, people would start leaving.

On the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter, we wait. In prayer, we often must wait, too. God isn’t Amazon or Boom Supersonic or an Internet provider. He doesn’t work on our time table hoping to have a satisfied customer. He follows His own timing and we must wait.

I’ve spoken with people who told me that yesterday they prayed for xyz and God didn’t answer their prayer. God did answer their prayer, though. He always does. However, His answer may have been that they needed to wait.

It’s not easy, but it is for the best. It reminds us that we are the created making requests of our creator. It also teaches us to trust God and His love and wisdom, both in how He answers our prayers and when.

We know God’s will is good, His ways are wiser than ours, and He loves us. We can trust Him to always answer our prayers. We can also trust how and when He acts. So, we can join Micah in saying that we will look to the Lord and wait for the God of our salvation, knowing He hears us.

Heavenly Father,

It can be difficult to wait, but I know Your timing is better than mine. Help me to be patient and to wait on You.



In Christ,
Pastor Kurt
