God re-named Abram to Abraham, the father of many nations, and then waited 25 years to fulfill that promise. Imagine all the awkward conversations in which Abraham had to introduce himself: “Hi, I’m the father of many nations…” “Oh?,” they might reply, “how many kids do you have?” And Abraham would have to respond, “Well… none… yet.”

But in the right time, God came through.

God took Moses and the children of Israel out of Egyptian slavery and released them to the Promised Land, but it would take forty years for the nation to be cleansed and purified and re-trained in the art of being a nation of God’s people.

And finally, they made it home.

Lazarus was dead for four days. There was absolutely no hope left whatsoever that his life would be saved. He was treated, anointed, wrapped up, and buried in a tomb. And then Jesus showed up to find his friends weeping.

But Jesus spoke Lazarus’ name and Lazarus came forth!

The Bible is filled with story after story of people who waited on God’s perfect timing and were blessed to watch God show up and  work at just the right moment.

What do you do when you’re waiting on God to work?

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

~ Psalm 27:14 NIV

You take heart and you remain confident that God will continue to be God, to be good, to be faithful, and that he will indeed fulfill every purpose and every promise to his children. It’s simply a matter of time.
