Deer season is approaching, my husband just left (he was scheduled to leave at 1pm) to go for the annual work weekend on the lease. It's about the only thing he'll leave for earlier than scheduled. He left me a list of things to do for his business, one of which did not include writing myself a pay check....just kidding.
I think we can be like that with the Lord, aside from leaving Him of list of things we would like for Him to do, we may jump the gun and go ahead with something that is His will but the timing is all wrong. Not only must we seek His will, we must await His perfect timing.
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O Lord my God.
I wait for your salvation, O LORD, and I follow your commands.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.
Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
