A Wait Problem

Today I was visiting an elderly Christian lady on the island of Trinidad. We spoke of many things, and then read some Scripture and prayed together.

During the visit, she made an interesting remark. She said, “In this day and age, many people have a ‘wait’ problem. Not a w-e-i-g-h-t problem, but a w-a-i-t problem.”

This was a very interesting way of expressing what does characterize the spirit of the twenty-first century. This is an instantaneous society, and we like everything now! But it is good for us to learn while we are young to wait for God’s perfect timing in our lives. David in the Old Testament had to learn this lesson, and over and over again he speaks of it. Here are some examples:

“Yea, let none that wait on Thee be ashamedOn Thee do I wait all the day” (Psalm 25:3, 5).

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).

“Wait on the Lord, and keep His way” (Psalm 37:34).

I am sure it was often hard for David to wait God’s time, but, in the end, it was all worthwhile.
