Waiting Quietly

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.” – Lamentations 3:25-26 NLT

It takes time for seeds to grow. All farmers wish this were not true. They would love to plant seeds one day and reap a harvest the next. But through experience, they learn they must wait for a harvest.

This principle applies to every area of life even to spiritual things. Our human desire is to see quick results, that God’s help would appear instantly, but the waiting process seems inevitable, just as it is for the farmer. Through life experiences, we learn that there is a time to sow and a time to reap (Ecclesiastes 3:2), separated by a time of waiting.

Yet many give up or become discouraged when they do not see immediate results. They want to sow today and reap tomorrow, but that does not happen. The Bible even promises that God will be “good to those who depend on Him.”

Yes, reaping a harvest takes time. We must be persistent to plant seeds and then learn to wait patiently. Have faith in God, fully expecting that He will produce results in His time!

Make sure that you are sowing seeds into God’s Kingdom. Always remember the importance of waiting and trusting in Him. He has promised that if you sow faithfully, you will reap a harvest in due season. Continue to have faith, and don’t give up! And remember that God is good to “those who depend on Him, to those who search for Him.”

Reflection Question: What kind of seeds has God given you to sow into His Kingdom?

Prayer
Father, thank You for the seeds you’ve given me. I will sow them into Your Kingdom. I trust You for the result.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
