We are often reminded to "wait upon the Lord." But do we ever think about God waiting upon us?
Isaiah 30:18a says, "The Lord will wait that he may be gracious to you, and therefore he will be exalted that he may have mercy upon you. . ."
Today's devotion in the wonderful Streams in the Desert states: "God is a wise gardener 'who waits for the precious fruit of the earth and has long patience for it.' He can not gather fruit until it is ripe. He knows when we are spiritually ready to receive the blessing to our profit and His glory."
God created time, and God uses time. While He waits for us, may we also wait for Him in the blessings and trials of our lives.
