None of us like to wait, especially for things that we want to happen or are looking forward to. Waiting is not an easy thing. I am reminded of this as I am waiting for something myself this week. 

I've been thinking about verses that speak of waiting. Waiting on the Lord. Patience. 

So...you know what you're waiting on...meditate on these verses and "Run with patience the race that is set before us!" :-) 


But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. -Isaiah 40:31-

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  -Hebrews 12:1-2-
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: -Romans 2:7-

What are some of your favorite verses on waiting? I'd like to hear them!
Press on! There a course to finish and race to win!

  1. Psalm 27:14 is one of my most favorite verses on waiting: "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord."

    I also like Psalm 37:7-9: "Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth."

    Good post! And I like the fact that I know what you're waiting for...just two more days at the most, right? :)
