So many of us are waiting for the right job or the right spouse. Some are waiting for their so-called “ship” to come in or even for God to answer a prayer that they have prayed many times. Why does God make us wait? I don’t have a reason for you except that He is God. He knows what is coming and what is best for you. What you have prayed for may be the best for you but not at this time. It also may be something that you have asked for that is not the best for you, which is why you are waiting.
We have so much instant things in life today. Drive through at many restaurants, microwave popcorn, cell phones which let us have instant communication almost anywhere. It seems that we have lost our ability to wait for much, which means that our patience is not in abundance today.
