and then He said to His disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.” (John 11v7 NIV)
After two days He decides it is time.
Did He wait on purpose or was He needed there for those extra two days?
We simply don’t know.
Waiting is part of walking with God.
It isn’t just about you.
Sometimes it is also about others.
God may be waiting for them.
He is patient.
So should we.
Are you willing to wait for others if He is?
Ask Him to help you wait.
To trust and to believe.
Perseverance, patience and persistence are often needed.
Especially when nothing seems to be happening.
Waiting can be hard, so ask Him for the grace to be patient.
This period can be the very best for you.
In that time, turn your affection to Him.
Do this daily and on a constant basis.
Praise Him no matter how you feel.
Your worship of Him isn’t dependent on how you feel.
He may seem take you back to where you started.
