One of the most important though difficult facets of prayer is waiting. The greatest answers to prayer come through the patience of the petitioner. Abraham waited 25 years to become the father of a great nation. The disciples waited in despair after the Lord was crucified. In John ll:5,6 we read,

“Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.

6 Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick,

he stayed where he was two more days. [1]

Are you tempted to give up on God because He is causing you to wait? God’s love for you is a settled matter. You can wait for Him because you are waiting in His love.

  1. AMEN! Though waiting is never easy, it is always worth it when you're waiting on God. :) Praying you have a wonderful Resurrection weekend filled with God's power and presence!

  2. I echo Cherie - Amen!

    God means for us to wait often because He has something far more remarkable around that corner. The sisters already knew that Jesus could heal - oh, but what amazement it must have been when they discovered that Jesus could raise the dead!

    Be blessed and have a fantastic Easter celebration.
