As parents we tell our kids to wait until we are off the phone then they can ask us something. At the doctor's office we are told to wait until the doctor is ready to see us. That ever so long red light when no one is coming for miles and miles makes us wait to go until it turns green. We spend a lot of time waiting.
But what does it really mean to "wait"? Recently I was reading a letter that came in the mail from Don Deluzio. He learned the definition of "wait" from his college football coach. It brings waiting to a whole nother level.
Usually we equate waiting with...waiting. Doing nothing much until something happens. Instead, waiting really means being in a ready position. It's an action word. As Don puts it, waiting is being like a linebacker waiting for the ball, "ready to act when the pigskin [is] snapped...to spring into action!"
So, the next time you find yourself waiting for something, especially if it is a yet-to-be answered prayer, wait in a ready position. Isaiah 40:31 gives us a promise about waiting. "But they that wait upon the Lord (there's some meditation going on there) shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Ready? Set? Wait...
