Jesus told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Father (Acts 1:4). Waiting is very difficult for us, especially when a promise of our good Father is involved. Is the wait worth the denial of Self?
It certainly is! Waiting upon the Lord is rewarded with
- inheriting the earth (Ps 37:9)
- mercy (Ps 123:2)
- blessing (Is 30:18)
- renewed strength (Is 40:31)
- justice (Zeph 3:8)
