You, like us, may know that those who wait up on the Lord renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31). You may believe that we are not to grow weary while doing good (Galatians 6:9). You may trust that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it (Philippians 1:6). You may be claiming those Scriptures, but still finding the waiting room to be an uninviting place. I want to encourage you this day to let God grow you in the waiting. Like the bamboo seed that germinates under the surface for years before rapid growth is seen, we can patiently surrender as God work out His growth process in us over time, and continue to be faithful to Him until our sprouts take root and shoot to the sky.
Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!
