Second, He does not answer for my benefit. He answers so that others will be drawn to Him when they see His grace and mercy toward me, Psalm 40:3b. Sometimes, no probably most times, I get that backwards. My issues press in on me and I want results, move, act, fix… on my terms, when I “need” them fixed. Waiting patiently reorients my heart to what is really important.
It is a real struggle, at least for me.
