If you know me, you know how much I adore Beth Moore and am so thankful for how God has used her ministry in my life. This morning, her words of wisdom encouraged me again, and believing that others need to hear this too, I'd love to pass this on to you.
"The Lord longs to be gracious to you. God says, 'I know the timing here, I'm longing too. When your prayer request waits, you're longing...and so is He! If He's longing and waiting, there is something the wait is for. There will be a wait and a wait and a wait, and suddenly there will be a whirlwind answer with such velocity, it nearly blows your wig off! He'll come swiftly. You can wait and long, but do not fret." -Beth Moore
"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him." Isaiah 30:18
If you are in a waiting period, trusting the Lord in faith, especially if you aren't seeing any kind of breakthrough yet, please be encouraged like me that "there is something the wait is for," and "He will come swiftly" and work things out when the time is just right. We see in part, but He sees the whole!
