There are so many things in our daily lives that cause us to wait. We get impatient, causing us to have a bad attitude toward the person that’s causing the delay. Sometimes we end up disappointed because the outcome isn’t what we desired or expected. When we’re waiting on God, we get tempted to give up on Him. Waiting with confidence can almost seem like an impossibility. Fear and doubt get in the way and we’re left wondering, “Is God ever going to come through”? We wait with a bad attitude toward Him.
While reading Romans 8 today, this verse stood out to me. It gave me an attitude adjustment. It really encouraged me to think about how much (or how little) I patiently and confidently wait on God and I thought you might find it helpful as well.
No matter what you’re going through, no matter what you’re waiting on, remain hopeful. Wait with a patient attitude and a readiness to receive. Wait, knowing that your Father is your source of all good and perfect gifts and that He does not withhold them from His children. And as you maintain your hope by standing on God’s Word, you’ll be able to have a heart and mind that wait patiently and confidently.
