Wait for Direction (2/2).

The important part of waiting is the direction we get while we wait. I love the way Warren Buffet puts it, "There’s no use running if you’re on the wrong road." Life is not about speed. Yes, speed has its own place, but not ahead of direction. Direction supersedes Speed. What is the use of getting to the wrong destination on time? What is the use of being good at what does not matter?

Sometimes, while we wait it might seem God is silent. The secret at those times is to continue with the last instruction we got from Him, while we remain sensitive to his next direction. That is being faithful to that which has already been revealed. We are not to let that which we do not know stand in the way of that which is already clear to us. Remember Deuteronomy 29:29. It reads,

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.“

Waiting is a test of where our heart is. In waiting God is asking a question. Our answer is found in the disposition of our hearts while we wait. We see the consequences of Saul not waiting in 1 Samuel 13:7-14. Note Samuel appeared just after Saul gave up. It is always too early to give up waiting. There is no alternative to waiting on a faithful God.

Lord, I am waiting on you.

I am WHO I am.
St. Akin de Sage.
