KEY VERSE: Genesis 25:21 (A reminder to pray)
Isaac pleaded with the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was unable to have children. The Lord answered Isaac’s prayer, and Rebekah became pregnant with twins.

No one likes to wait, but I form your character in the process. I mold and shape you to be someone you never thought possible and the right person for all I have planned for you. In your season of waiting, be filled with hope and confidence in who I am. I want you to know me in a more significant, deeper, and intimate way. I am faithful, and I don’t always give you what you want, but I provide what you need.

Wait on me, but do so expectantly. Do so with the confidence that I, as your loving father, know what is best. Do so with the enthusiasm that because I am a good, good father, you can know that I will deliver what you need precisely when you need it. Cling to me and my promises. Review my promises. Remember that I love you and am with you and am for you. Stop waiting in despair and rest in the knowledge that I am reliable.

In what areas are you impatient? Are there goals you need to revisit or revise? Or are you supposed to continue to wait? Discuss with God and a trusted friend and then take action or persevere.
