Busy Waiting

Do you ever fall into the trap, like I have, of feeling like you are just biding time until…?

I remember having a conversation with a man who truly believed God was calling him to the mission field but things had not yet fallen into place for him. He was discouraged and became more and more so.

Is there something in your life that you are just waiting to happen, biding time until it does?

When God has us in a holding pattern, are we waiting in neutral?

The man I mentioned earlier was waiting in neutral. He lost sight of the opportunities presented to him in the present. What opportunities are we overlooking while we wait?

What is God up to in our lives while we wait?

Abraham waited more than a few years for the birth of his promised son. The promise of God to Abraham is recorded in Genesis 12 but Isaac wasn’t born until Genesis 21. The intervening chapters show he did not wait in neutral. He was busy walking out a life of obedience daily while he waited.

So here’s today’s question for you: Are you busy waiting?

Blessings, Diane
