Waiting on the Lord

Isaiah 40:27-31

 

Waiting is not one of our strong suits! We are a microwave generation with lightning speed internet and same day delivery. When we want something, we want it now! But that’s not how God works. God has a “purpose” for everything. His timing is perfect, His understanding is complete and His wisdom is always right! This morning’s lesson is “Waiting on The Lord"
