This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Isaiah 40:31 (ESV)
Today I am encouraging you to wait on God, even when you think it’s too late.
Recently we talked about staying on the same page with God, but this can be most challenging—especially when you’re waiting on God. This was the case with Jairus, one of the synagogue leaders.
One day, Jesus was out among the people when Jairus approached him and asked him to come back to his home quickly to save his dying daughter.
When Jesus walked among the people, there was always a large crowd, so as he was trying to make his way back to Jairus’ home, messengers arrived to tell them not to bother going to the house because the young girl was already dead.
Personally, when I believe Jesus hasn’t responded to one of my prayers quickly enough, my response might be either despair or even a hint of attitude.
It is interesting though because in Mark 5, it says that Jesus ignored the comments of these messengers and instead turned directly to Jairus and said, “Trust me, and don’t be afraid.”
In the end, Jesus went to Jairus’ home and brought the little girl back to life. So the next time you feel despair, or even have a hint of attitude because you think God is late in answering one of your prayers, remember that the key is to still trust Him while you wait.
As you reflect on that, hold onto these words: “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:31 (ESV)
