I’ve heard a lot of people say (and you probably have too), “I’m waiting on the Lord.” They quote scriptures such as Isaiah 40:31, “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength,” or Psalm 27:14, “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!”
But let’s be sure we understand what “waiting on the Lord” means – and what it doesn’t mean.
First, waiting on the Lord doesn’t mean sitting on the couch watching TV and eating candy (darn) while you wait for God to show up and speak to you in an audible voice (no matter how much you wish He would). It doesn’t mean just going about your business, passively wondering if or when God will send the answer. Far from it!
