There is nothing more challenging to faith than to have to wait. A patient has to wait for the results from a test to see if their condition is fatal. A student has to wait to see if their test scores are high enough to pursue their dreams. A mother waits up late in the night until her teen is home safe and sound. A husband waits for his annual review not knowing if he’ll make enough to support his family in the coming year.
There are so many times when we are required to wait. Some waits are trivial, like waiting for an app to load on the phone, but even those types test our patience. How does one wait without worry, without sin?
One answer – worship! If we are worshiping our goals, our desires, our plans, we will be anxious every time we are unexpectedly forced to wait. If our eyes are on God, we will find comfort as we wait for His timing. It won’t be easy, mind you, but we will be comforted as we wait.
Wednesday is our pause in the week to remind us all to worship God in the midst of our challenges. He is in control. We can trust Him. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and spend the next few minutes worshiping God with one of our favorite songs, Out of the Depths. We pray it will be a healthy break from your routine and a readjustment of your focus.
