When I consider my desire for an easy life, I’m forced to admit that my desires align more with my culture than with God’s word. What am I supposed to do when Jesus tells me to rejoice in persecution and hardship? Or how about when James and Peter both talk about the joy that comes from trials?
Waiting does not have to create bitterness, anger or loss of hope: it can establish a deeper trust and knowledge of who God is and his love for you. I pray that you would experience him intimately as you wait on him.
