- “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” – (Psalm 27:14)
Everyone knows the story of Joshua and the walls of Jericho. God commanded the Israelites to march around Jericho once a day for six days, then seven times on the seventh day. Upon doing so, the walls came crashing down. Why not just walk around Jericho one time? I think it was because God was testing their faith.
God was teaching them that waiting time is not wasted time. Isaiah 28:16 says, “He that believeth shall not make haste.” God is never in a hurry, like we are. He is always in control. Do you know what our problem is? We’ve been around Jericho six times and we’re ready to quit. Just wait on the Lord. Say with the psalmist: “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him” (Psalm 62:5).
