Are you tired of waiting on God?


BIBLE MEDITATION:

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

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Do you know the story of Joshua and how the wall of Jericho fell down? Some people haven’t heard the whole story. They think the Israelites just marched up to it, gave a shout, and “the walls came a-tumblin’ down.” Not at all.

Following God’s orders to Joshua, the Israelites marched around it once a day for six days. Then on the seventh day, they marched around it seven times before they gave the shout. Then the wall collapsed!

Now, why not just walk around Jericho one time? Why would God make them go around it for seven days? I think it was because God was testing their faith.

God was teaching them that waiting time is not wasted time. Isaiah 28:16b says, “He that believeth shall not make haste.” God is never in a hurry, like we are. We get upset when we miss a section in a revolving door! God is also never late. He knows what He is doing.

ACTION POINT:

Do you know what our problem is? We’ve been around Jericho six times and we’re ready to quit. Don’t do it. Stay the course. Say with the psalmist: “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him” (Psalm 62:5).
