Waiting is a Time for Preparation


You have to be patient to be a farmer. There's no such thing as an overnight crop. You plant and then you wait. After a farmer plants a seed in the ground, does he go and sit on his hands for six months and watch TV? No. The whole time that he's waiting, he's getting ready for the harvest. After he's planted, he's cultivating, watering, weeding, fertilizing, and preparing for the harvest. The point is this: If you find yourself waiting on God, use the time to get ready for his answer. Patience is not passivity. Waiting is a time for preparation.


“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.”

‭‭James‬ ‭5:7-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
