“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (Psa 27:14)
We head to work and get caught in the middle of a traffic jam. We enter a conversation and get caught in the middle of an argument. We dream of our future and then get caught in the middle of things we did not foresee and would not have chosen.
When you are required to wait, it means that you are caught in the middle of something and when you are caught in the middle of something, it immediately means that you are part of something bigger than you.
The spiritual reality is that we are not the authors of our own story. Our story is a part of a larger story that is written by the Lord. In this story we are never on center stage, He alone is center stage.
So, when you recognize you are caught in the middle of something, you are recognizing something that is profoundly important. It means you were meant to live for something bigger than you. You are not in control. You have been created to be part of something that is larger than your wants, your needs, and your feelings.
But as you wait, He is doing something in and for you. He is crafting you into the person His grace alone enables you to be!
