Why is waiting on God such an integral aspect of serving Him? Because it takes faith. Our trust in Him is most essential during those in-between times, those dark moments before dawn, when our problems are all too evident, but we cannot yet see how God will resolve them.
During such times, I’m always tempted to play out “What if?” scenarios in my head. What if God says “No”? What if God abandons me? What if I have to solve this problem for myself?
As I wait on the answer from the publisher about my book proposal, I have to constantly battle this sinful impulse. Not because I think God will be constrained to grant my wishes if I have enough faith, but because it’s such an insult to God. When I act as though He’s likely to disappoint me, my thoughts and actions proclaim that I believe He’s unreliable.
