Waiting is not being idle. (1/2)

Waiting is not being stupid. We get our waiting stance from the second part of Matthew 7:7. It reads, "seek, and you will find." It is the second level of praying. It is the "seek" rung of the ladder of prayer. It is the searching of heart for God's will and direction in and on a matter.

Waiting is active. It is never passive. It is a stance where we clear our mind and heart of every idol. It is our place of surrender. It calms down our emotions and brings us to a place of clarity of intent and purpose. It is a stance of readiness to hear God's direction on a matter.

Waiting is a time of preparation and consecration. Waiting might not seem to make sense, while we wait. However, when you get there you'll understand it truly does make sense and was worth every second of the wait.

To wait is to trust. To wait is to stretch. To wait is to grow and build strength. To wait is to mature. To wait is to prepare for that which is to be received. There is no other option than to wait. It is God's way, and hence, the only way.

“Stop leaving and you will arrive. Stop searching and you will see. Stop running away and you will be found.”— Lao Tzu.
