How long, oh Lord? How long will this season of waiting go on?
Over and over again in the Bible we find people waiting for God to lead them, heal them, rescue them, or answer them. How these same people respond to the waiting often signals what they believe about who God is and how he’s at work in their lives. Throughout December, in the month of Advent when we reenact the Messianic waiting that defined so much of Israel’s history, we’re going to talk about what we can learn about waiting in our own lives. Sometimes we’re fearful in our waiting and don’t act when we know we should. Other times we forge ahead without waiting long enough, wrongly believing we’ve heard from God or have the answers ourselves. But when we walk with God, we wait in obedience, perseverance, and especially hope.
