Wait vs. deal treacherously.
- Not loyal, or faithful, betraying or likely to betray.
- Seeming safe, reliable, etc. but not really so.
But when I consider this further, it begins to make sense. The Creator of the Universe has sacrificed His son in order to allow me to have a relationship with Him (John 3:16). He has invited me into the same relationship He enjoys with His Son (John 17:20 - 24). Through His Spirit, He has promised to lead me as I navigate life (Psalm 32:8; Isaiah 30:21). Further, His Spirit leads me into clear understanding of truth (John 16:13). In light of that, not to wait for Him, not to follow His lead, begins to look a lot like betrayal, faithlessness, unreliable - ok, treachery.
Looks like I need to learn to wait.
