  3. When I became a Christian, I often wondered what people meant when they said they were "waiting on the Lord." From my observations, it looked to me to be a very passive activity. I asked people what they meant by “waiting on the Lord.” Most said that they were praying and waiting for the Lord to act in their lives.

    The definition of a waiter helped me to understand what waiting on the Lord means: 1. a person whose job is to serve customers at their tables in a restaurant; 2. a person who waits for a time, event, or opportunity. From this definition, it is obvious that waiting on the Lord is not passive, but very active.

    It is actively watching for a time, event or opportunity to act for the Lord and then acting to accomplish his revealed will. Waiting on the Lord is serving the Lord in whatever role he has chosen for us, in spite of what we want or think. It is faithfully discharging the duties of one who is called by Christ to act in trial, hardship and persecution. It is being willing to let Christ teach us lessons of humility, reliance on our Heavenly Father, and even serving the best interest of those we might call our enemies. Waiting on the Lord is dying daily to what we think we need to have, to do and to say, and being a blessing to those God places in our lives, even those who would curse and abuse us.

    Waiting on the Lord is definitely not passive or easy. It takes supernatural power to accomplish because it is far beyond the natural ability of the human being. It is a gift of God's spirit.

  4. amen brethren
