"And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you...blessed are all they that wait for him" (Isa. 30:18).
And you ask, "How is it, if He waits to be gracious, that even after I come and wait upon Him, He does not give the help I seek, but waits on longer and longer?"
Be assured that if God waits longer than you could wish, it is only to make the blessing doubly precious. God waited four thousand years, till the fullness of time, ere He sent His Son. Our times are in His hands; He will avenge His elect speedily; He will make haste for our help, and not delay one hour too long. --Andrew Murray

We’ve been waiting – for months, it seems – for one thing or another. And still we wait. Waiting is wearing thin for me today. So God in His infinite wisdom gave me this devotion for July 22nd.
I need to pour another cup of coffee and consider further this more than needed message for today. And continue to wait for that “doubly precious” blessing.
