Waiting. Part-One.

Don’t give up!

The waiting game is a hard place to be for all of us, it could be the parcel in the post or the email that is the answer to a job, a date, a refund. We could be waiting for blood results from the hospital, a letter from the GP, a Job interview.

The time to us seems longer than it actually is, this was the same with the Disciples. They had to wait for His resurrection and then to see Him and then when He left the stay in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit to be poured out.

We must learn to wait on God and not give up, because Jesus always has the best for us.

1 Chronicles 23:8,  Psalm 27:14,  37:34,  Proverbs 20:22,  Romans 8:25.

Don’t leave….wait here.

These are the final words of Jesus before his ascension back to heaven to his disciples. They are told to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promised comforter, the pouring out of the Holy Spirit to empower the Church. Acts 1:3-5, Luke 24:44-53.

Waiting is a hard game, if you wait to long for something naturally you start to doubt.

But Jesus gave them 10 days to wait and they kept themselves busy during that period. Acts 1:6-12.

Much later those same disciples were able to give a powerful testimony of all of these tremendous events for us. 1 John 1:1-10.
