Prayer helps us wait
When we have sufficiently waited on the Lord, He gets full control of our spirit. At such moments, we’re like a glove, and His hand is moving us wherever He pleases.1
I’m not a fan of waiting, but then, I’ve never met someone who says they are. But you know what? Every time . . . every single time . . . that I wait on the Lord, the end result is a beautiful, creative result of harmony and peace. So I will wait for the Lord to move my gloves for His purpose.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.
6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.
7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out evil devices!2
