Since before time began no one has ever imagined, no ear heard, no eye seen, a God like you who works for those who wait for him. You meet those who happily do what is right, who keep a good memory of the way you work. Isaiah 64:4 from The Message

 

The best-selling book, The Day of the Jackal, was turned down with the comment of “no reader interest.” The book has since sold eight million copies. The Diary of Anne Frank was rejected 15 times and called “very dull,” with unfamiliar characters who bickered like a typical family. Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen was rejected 140 times. And Carrie by Stephen King? Rejected 30 times. The story goes, after the final rejection King threw the manuscript in the trash and his wife fished it out.
 
What does it mean to wait for God? One of my favorite sayings goes: “God is good, God is great. God is slow but never late.” This is actually one of mine. God spoke it to me one evening during a Bible study fellowship lecture. For me, that saying speaks volumes. Not because of its commentary on God’s character, but on ours. We live for the moment; God lives for the ages. We want success right now; God wants us right with Him. We imagine what we can see and hope God will give us our dreams. He dreams of a time when we no longer look to Him as the giver of gifts and blessings but as simply, Lord.
