God is never early or late. He is always on time - Daily Bible Reflections December 10,2014


THE WAITING GAME
 
Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles... – Isaiah 40:31
 
This verse was my “battlecry” when I was single — because I would cry while I battled with my emotions of impatience and despair. It had been 10 long years of repeatedly giving up my boyfriend — and going back to him — in my desire to follow the Lord. But here was the Lord telling me to wait some more. I was no longer a spring chicken and yet the Lord made it clear that this wasn’t the man for me. I was getting so impatient that I was convincing God that this man would do.
       I tried to change God’s mind by forcing my boyfriend to be active in our prayer group. I even fasted for a week with the hope that God would finally say he’s the one. But the song that kept playing in my car was, “Wait, wait, wait on the Lord. You will understand in time why you must wait.”
       Oswald Chambers wrote, “When God gives you a vision and darkness follows, wait. God will bring the vision He has given you to reality in your life if you will wait on His timing. Never try to help God fulfill His Word.”
       In those 10 years, God broke my impatient streak and self-will, and taught me how to wait on Him. He broke all my self-reliance and dependence on others and taught me to rely on Him alone. And when God saw I was ready, he brought my future husband into my life. Ronna Ledesma (ronna_ledesma@yahoo.com.ph)
 
Reflection: God is never early or late. He is always on time.
 
Father, thank You for rewarding with good things those who wait on You.
 
St. John Roberts, priest and martyr, pray for us.
