Patient Expectation: Navigating Life's "Hurry Up And Wait"

In a world that races against the clock, the concept of waiting is often met with impatience and restlessness. However, in Pastor Alan Young's thought-provoking message, "Hurry Up And Wait," grounded in James 5:7-10, Matt 11:1-10, and Isaiah 40:31, we unravel the transformative power that lies within the art of waiting.

1. Waiting Can Help You Build Patience:

James 5:7 encourages us to "be patient... until the coming of the Lord." Waiting, although challenging, serves as a powerful crucible for cultivating patience. It's in the waiting that we learn the art of endurance, teaching us to navigate life's uncertainties with grace and fortitude. Embracing the waiting season becomes a masterclass in building a virtue that enriches every aspect of our lives.

2. Waiting Can Help You Prepare for the Future:

In the waiting, there's a unique opportunity for preparation. Matthew 11:1-10 highlights John the Baptist's role as a forerunner, preparing the way for Jesus. Similarly, waiting periods in our lives can be times of preparation, refining skills, and acquiring the wisdom needed for the future. Use the waiting season to equip yourself, ensuring you step into the next phase of life well-prepared and with purpose.

3. Waiting Can Help You Avoid Wasting Time:

Contrary to the notion that waiting is time wasted, Isaiah 40:31 unveils waiting as a time of renewal and strength. Instead of seeing waiting as an idle period, view it as an investment in your personal growth. Use this time to pursue meaningful activities, invest in relationships, and engage in self-improvement endeavors. Waiting becomes a canvas on which you paint the strokes of a purposeful life.

4. Waiting Can Help You Strengthen Self-Control:

The discipline of waiting inherently involves exercising self-control. Instead of succumbing to impatience or making hasty decisions, Isaiah 40:31 calls us to "wait on the Lord" and discover renewed strength. Waiting becomes a training ground for self-mastery, empowering you to navigate life's challenges with a calm and controlled demeanor.

5. Waiting Can Help You Avoid Distractions:

Amidst the rush, waiting serves as a natural filter, helping you discern between what truly matters and fleeting distractions. As you wait, prioritize your values and goals, allowing the stillness to guide your focus. Isaiah 40:31 promises that those who wait on the Lord will "renew their strength" and not be swayed by every passing distraction.
