The Humble Faith of Waiting for God

Genesis 16:1-16              May 5, 2013                  Link for audio/video/document

We are to be a people who wait for God. Our struggle is no different than Abram’s. God is testing us when He doesn’t jump when we think He should. When we see our hopes slipping away, we always want to jump in and give God a hand. But God is not asking us to hope in His promises; God is asking us to put our hope in Him. We need not be impatient because we know God never grows tired and is always in control. The humble faith of waiting for God means trusting God and His promises regardless of the problems, pressures, and predicaments we face as wait for God to fulfill His promises.
