Worship While You Wait

Worship While You Wait

What are you waiting for? Waiting is a fact of life, as we all know. We wait on God, we wait on others, we wait on opportunities to open up, for circumstances and situations to come to pass. If we wait like Jesus, we do not wait passively. Paul and Silas understood this. Bound in chains, waiting for what the morning would bring, they prayed and sang hymns of praise. Their witness, even in the midst of suffering and waiting for the unknown, exalted God and brought others to faith. Exalt God in your times of waiting, so that He can accomplish His purposes in your life and in the lives of others.

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.—Acts 16:25

Prayer: God, transform our perspective on waiting. May we exalt You, worshiping You, and witnessing to Your goodness, faithfulness, and trustworthiness as we wait. In Jesus’ name, amen.
