You know that feeling you get when someone makes you a big promise? You probably feel excited, but
you might feel a little skeptical too — especially when that promise gets delayed . . . and delayed again . . . and again. If you have to wait long enough for something you were promised, you might start to wonder when you've waited long enough. Eventually, you might even give up hope. In this 4-week series, Waitlisted, we'll meet a handful of people from Scripture who each spent a long time waiting on God. From the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Paul and Silas, King David, and Joseph, we'll discover that God has a plan, but we might have to wait for it, and we'll be reminded that, while we're waiting, God is faithful, God is listening, and we should never give up, because God’s not giving up on us.
Have you ever had to wait for something you really really wanted? At first, the waiting is kind of fun, right? While you wait, the anticipation builds because, when the waiting is finally over, you know you’re going to have the best day ever. But what happens when that day gets delayed? Maybe you’re a little disappointed, but you can be patient. But then it’s delayed again. And again. And again. Soon, you start to wonder if it’s ever going to happen at all, or if you should just give up hope. It’s not a great feeling, but it’s a feeling a lot of us can identify with — and for some of us, it’s because we’ve been waiting on God. Like Abraham and Sarah, who waited for years for God to give them a child, or the people of Israel who waited even longer for God to save them, here’s the message you and I often need to hear: God has a plan, but we might have to wait for it.
Join us as we study from the Word of God to grow as the "sons and daughters of God." We also will take time out for some fun and games, relaxing and connecting with each other. See ya' there!!
