Friday is here! Wow- this week surely flew by. My goal with this Bible reading challenge has been to try to do a little Bible journaling each day. One of the biggest reasons I am enjoying the Bible art journaling is that it allows me to keep my hands creative while my heart dwells on the Scripture. Let’s take a look at the week of what we were learning; check out the Waiting on God Bible reading summary week 2.
He always keeps his promises. One of our readers commented about how this phrase really made her stop and think: “It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority.”
In spite of the crazy circumstances… Even in the midst of trial… Although my friends might think I’m a little craycray… And my family may not agree with my decision.. But I will look to the Lord. I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.
Isn’t it interesting to see all the action words in Psalm 37? Trust. Delight. Commit. Be silent. Wait. Turns out there is a lot to do while waiting on God. I don’t want to miss any of it!
“For through the Spirit, by faith, we eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.” The next time you find yourself waiting on God, ask yourself two words. What matters? Because what really matters is faith working through love.
Happy is the one who waits for wisdom. Funny how we crave happiness and hate waiting, isn’t it? Today’s passage explains they go together.
The ultimate event we wait for- that blessed hope of glory, Christ’s return. Until then… While we wait… grace for living.
Build your faith. Pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God. If I weren’t so busy huffing and puffing about the wait, then maybe I’d realize there is a lot of work to be completed in God’s waiting room. You too?
The most emphasized principles I gleaned from the reading this week is that waiting is not boring. It is not inactive. Waiting on God doesn’t mean that there is no work to do in the wait. Now granted, knowing what the work is- that is the bread and butter. But even when we feel that we don’t have the right action steps to take, the above passages really outline what we should be doing while we wait for God to move in a particular situation.
Would you share what you learned from the reading this week? Can’t wait to read about it.
By his grace,

What is a Journaling Bible is a well-loved post that resulted from so many readers asking the question: What kind of Bible is that?
