Pastor Paul David Tripp discusses waiting on God.
Waiting on God
The best-selling author and international event speaker talked about waiting on God in his recent Instagram post. Pastor Paul explained that waiting on God means more than the thing we will receive at the end of our waiting season. It’s about how our waiting molds us into the person God wants us to be.
“Waiting on God is not about what you get at the end of the wait, waiting on God is about what you become as you’ve waited. Waiting on God is not just about what you get at the end of the wait, but about what you become as you wait.”
Paul David Tripp
The season of waiting changes everyone and it’s also in that season where God reveals to us things that we need to learn. It’s also in that moment that we get to know more about who Jesus is.
“You see, waiting changes you, you begin to learn that there is no salvation apart from God. That there’s no rock to stand on in life apart from Him. That there’s no fortress to be found outside of the Lord. You learn that hope in Him will never disappoint you. You learn that you can pour out whatever is in your heart to Him and He won’t reject you and He won’t turn His back on you.”
Waiting on God is not about the blessing that we will receive at the end of our wait, but it’s about the love God shows us during our wait.
“You learn that power is fading and riches are fading and you put the rich man and the poor man in a balance and there’s not much difference. That real power and real steadfast love belong to the Lord.”
