Waiting for God

Titus 2:13, …waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ…

In Samuel Beckett’s famous play, Waiting for Godot, two men wait for a man named Godot, but he never comes. Our waiting is far different. We wait not with uncertainty, but with expectancy. “Wait for Yahweh. Be strong, and let your heart be bold. Wait for Yahweh” (Psalm 27:14, own Hebrew translation)! Waiting for God is a position of trust. Waiting requires that we be still and trust in God to come. We don’t like to do nothing, but that is what waiting requires. “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10a). We remain strong and bold in our waiting because we know God will come. The Hebrews waited for God and He came and led them out of Egypt. Again all Israel waited for God and He came as a baby in swaddling cloths to die for us and rise from the dead. Thus today, we wait for God to come again in Christ’s second coming. God is a God who acts in human history, and He never fails. Therefore, we know He shall advent again.
