Then the LORD did exactly what he had promised…It all happened at the time God had said it would…And Sarah declared…“who would have dreamed that I would ever have a baby?”—Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. —That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.
God’s way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
For every one of God’s promises is “Yes” in [Jesus Christ]. Therefore, through him we also say “Amen” to the glory of God.
We wait to see what God will do and HOW?! We wait, judging Him to be slow about managing our crises…slow about reclaiming the wanderer…slow about making all things right…but His Word assures us (and illustrates repeatedly!!) that God is not slow at all. His timing is perfect. His agenda far exceeds our small thinking. The One who gave us Jesus to meet our deepest needs, will He not perfect everything else that concerns us? We can rest, knowing His ways are the best.

Lovely music to read by.
I’m not a good “waiter,” but was recently reminded in The Broken Way, that while I’m waiting, I should be doing what “waiters” do: serving.
Oh that’s perfect! What a sweet play on words. Thank you for that reminder this morning I woke this a.m. cognizant of just how much God has done for this happy Grandma without my ever asking or waiting! He serves our deepest needs without our knowing to ask! Now that’s
a Good waiter!
Amen! His ways and His timing are perfect. It’s easy to say that over the small things in our days when we realize that He is working. I am praying to hold onto that fact also for the things that take longer! Thank you for this good word!
Amen Bettie, me too.
