God Waits for Us

If you stray to the right or the left, you will hear a word
that comes from behind you: “This is the way; walk in it.”
Isaiah 30:21

My earliest memory of waiting for something was on my fourth birthday.  My Mom and Dad had given me my first wagon–a red one.  I remember sitting by the driveway of our house waiting for the wagon to be delivered.  I knew it was coming; I was happy to wait.
Many people in our world today don’t like to wait.  They want things right away.  Sometimes we’ll read in the Bible how we are to wait for God to answer a prayer.  Today, it’s the other way around.  The opening verse talks about God waiting for us!  God waits for us to turn our thoughts to God and to be open to what God’s Spirit will tell us in our hearts.  

Now that God has your attention, stop and feel what God is saying to you.  If you write down God’s words to you, you’ll be doing what the writers of the Bible did long, long ago.

Isaiah 30:18-26
