Waiting sucks. There are no two ways about it. It’s painful. Sometimes there is no reason behind it. Usually it’s because some bureaucrat didn’t do their job. Usually it’s because someone isn’t considerate.
But that’s earthly waiting. We’re in spiritual waiting.
Imagine how long Christ has been waiting for us.
Look at the above scripture. “At the right time…” Not even Christ knows the time or the day that we’ll be reconciled with him. Only the Lord, since before the world was made, knows when we are to be reconciled with him. Sometimes the Lord doesn’t reveal to us a certain time that something will happen and that’s where the faith is.
His thoughts aren’t like our thoughts. And our waiting doesn’t even come close to his waiting. Imagine to suffer what Christ had suffered and then to not know when it will be reconciled.
And that’s where your faith lies. And all of your power is in your patience.
