Over the last few days, God has given us the extreme privilege of praying over several people who are learning how to wait on Him during their time of separation. We consider their journeys as treading on very holy ground for we know they’re learning what it means to possess a waiting soul.
A waiting soul is different than a waiting heart. It’s harder. It’s deeper. It takes longer to cultivate. A waiting soul realizes that every earthly option has been exhausted, yet it does not despair. A waiting soul believes that deliverance can and will only come from God Himself. A waiting soul knows that steadfast hope comes in resting facedown on the promises of God…and in staying there.
Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name. Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You. Psalm 33:20-22 NASB
