Biblically, waiting is not just something we have to do until we get what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what God wants us to be.

[John Ortberg]

Psalm 27:14... Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Isaiah 25:9... And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Galatians 5:5... For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

Romans 8:25... But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

John 5:25... Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

Psalm 37:7... Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,

Psalm 40:1... I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

Psalm 25:5… Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

Psalm 62:1... Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

Psalm 62:5... My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. ♥
