But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Psalms 37:7
But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Micah 7:7
There is actually something happening while nothing is happening. God uses waiting to change us. God wants us to learn how to follow him and put down our demanding selves. We have to understand and be willing to embrace His way instead of insisting He grant us our own selfish wishes. Remember, that miserable, uncomfortable, sometimes painful state of silence is one of God’s most powerful tools to set us free.
