Waiting on an answer to prayer is like this also. When we pray we want an answer right away. We get impatient. God has perfect timing, He knows when and what is best for us. He will give us the answer in due time. Our job is to wait and and be thankful for the answer that will come. I have to admit I am usually like the second or third child, I beg, beg, beg, jump up and down and yell about waiting an answer, while God simply says, you still have to wait, maybe even longer now. Or I jump in and do what ever I can to make MY answer come about, that is when something usually gets broken or I get hurt.
God says to wait on him.... I need to do that better.
"Wait on the Lord;The Drawing:
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!" ~Psalms 27:14
