Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

When things seem too slow, we often want to take the wheel and do things ourselves. Avoid giving in to this temptation. When taking things into our own hands, the outcome gets contaminated. The outcome will either be not as good as we’d hoped it would be, won’t last as long as we thought, or have factors we did not consider.

For instance, we may want to buy a house. God told us to wait. Although God told us to wait, thoughts of losing the house to another buyer causes us to impulsively buy the house. That house may have foundation issues that will cost us more money in the future. We may not have considered the property taxes we would have to pay on the house. Five years later, the neighborhood may not be as nice as it was. We could have avoided these issues if we waited on the Lord. This is true with a job, car, or relationship.

God’s timing is the best. Wait on Him and He will bless whatever He approves.
