When we wait upon the Lord, we find ourselves looking to Him to help for some specific need. There is a conscious expectation that He will help us out in that special need. We do not have control over the circumstances and therefore are looking to His provisions, His protection, etc. In each case, though, it is good to notice our special need, recognize that He can help us in that area and then cast our hope in Him.
Waiting upon God is not only biblical but a necessary part of the Christian life for the growing Christian. "Wait for" is an active display of faith in God during impossible situations. Sara had trouble believing God would fulfill his promises, so she plunged ahead with her own solution

Sarah (originally named Sarai) was one of several women in the Bible who were barren. That proved doubly distressing for her because God had promised her husband Abraham that he would be the father of the Jewish nation, with descendants more numerous than the stars in the sky.

After waiting many years, Sarah convinced Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden, Hagar, to produce an heir.

  1. Waiitng is not easy: Abraham & Sara waited for son Isaac: :"God asked Abraham "is anything too hard for me" Gen 18:14
  2. require patience & grace , example of Job
  3. Waiting patiently rewards Job 42:10-17
