God’s Waiting Room

I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord.

Psalm 40:1-3 (NASB) 

Recently I had the experience, due to medical tests, of having to wait in a doctor’s office for three hours as the various steps for the tests were completed. While there the thought came to me of the expression – I am in God’s Waiting Room. Have you ever been there? Are you there now? When we think about it, we usually are in a waiting mode. Different circumstances at different seasons of our lives-we are waiting. It could be waiting for a relationship to resolve or heal; waiting to hear back from a company after a job interview; or waiting for your home to sell so you can move.
Perhaps you are younger and waiting for a new school year to begin at a different school from last year, where all your classmates will be new to you. Or like me, waiting for results of medical tests that will determine what comes next.
As I sat there I realized that while seemingly sitting there alone – I really was not alone. The Lord was right there with me! As His child He has assured me that “He will never leave me nor forsake me.”
He is not only with us every step of the way, He knows what is ahead for each of us. Our Shepherd has gone before us into whatever our present situation may be. What are you waiting for? Realize, as I did, that you are never alone. Rest in His Presence, Dear One. He is right there with you every step of the way.
