Psalm 105.19 "Until the time that his word came, the word of the LORD tried him."
Waiting for the promise to be fulfilled. Waiting during trials, testings and tribulations. Waiting when all hope seemed gone. Waiting when family and friends misunderstood. Waiting while wrongly accused. By faith, waiting for God's purpose to be done.
Adam waited for Eve. Noah waited for the waters to recede. Abraham waited for Isaac. Joseph waited for promotion as ruler in Egypt. Moses waited for his leadership position. Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednego waited in the fiery furnace. Daniel waited in the lion's den. Job waited during his afflictions. John the Baptist waited in the desert. Paul waited in jail. Throughout the Bible, men and women have waited for God to do as He has said.
The trying of faith works patience. The LORD still has His people who are waiting for Him to fulfill His promises. Hold on until your time comes. God is never late; He is always on time.
Psalm 27.14 "Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the LORD."
