Wait, But Don’t Over-Wait

“Let’s avoid two dangers. First, the danger of NOT-waiting on the Lord. We often think God is slow because we want an overnight success, instant prosperity, quick solutions to our problems,rapid recovery from illness, and instant marriages or relationships. Second, the danger of OVER-waiting on God. Here, we don’t like what God is bidding us to do, so we don’t obey Him or we postpone obedience. Whereas the first danger tries to rush God’s timing, the second doesn’t immediately heed His clear directives. Both dangers express lack of faith. Wait on the Lord, but don’t over-wait.”—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
