We often get frustrated waiting for fast food or waiting for a slow car in the fast lane. Other people get really antsy when they have to wait for their dead phone to charge.
This mindset often carries over to our spiritual lives. We want to rush to the next big thing. While most of us are in a hurry, it seems like God has other plans.
He likes to make people wait. The second half of 1 Samuel 16 takes place about two years later. Instead, it took 15 years more years for the young shepherd boy to rise to the throne, many of those years spent fearing for his life, hiding out and running away from his own father-in-law.

Our perspective is often too small. We often think that bigger things in life are more money and more thing, while God thinks influencing and changing people is more important.

People often miss the fact that Moses was in the desert for 40 years before God told him to save His people. God used this time of waiting to transform his character from brash and impatient man to someone who would become a leader of a nation.
Waiting transformed the life of Moses and it does the same for you and I. Our relationship with the Father is not a get-rich-quick scheme.
Those who value that relationship have this insatiable thirst and desperation for more of Him. You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
In seasons of waiting, the temptation is to run after what you think is next and neglect what God is doing now. Because, as Kris Vallotton once said, between the promise and the palace, there is the process.
He endured the process that took him from the promise to the palace. He was faithful with what he was doing, whether it was tending to sheep, playing lullabies to the king or getting the king ready for battle. God knows what experiences you need to prepare you for the next season in your life.
We may not always understand why we have to wait, but the good news is that God never leave us nor forsake us. Blessings, Ramli Solidum Want to receive more articles, verses and quotes that will bless you and help you with your walk in Christ?
