Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. (Psalm 27:14)
Wow, we have done some waiting in the military haven’t we? Sometimes it’s in the most miserable weather, too. One of the most notorious places for waiting is Green Ramp at Pope Air Force Base. When I was in the 82nd Airborne Division I sat on that concrete forever waiting for a jump (and sometimes just to find out the jump was cancelled). But when it comes to waiting on God, we can be assured it’s always beneficial. Sometimes it’s a matter of our not being ready. Sometimes it’s a matter of lining up other people and circumstances. But waiting on God is always about perfect timing. Who knows where that extra time in the chow line or the delay traffic will lead. Learn to rest in your waiting.
