But even though it’s so common, waiting can be an incredibly stressful experience—especially if you’re waiting for something big in your life: a loved one; a new job opportunity; or even just an answer to a prayer.

It’s hard to wait. We all know that. Waiting is one of the hardest things we do in life, and yet it’s something we do every single day. Waiting for the bus, waiting for your food at a restaurant, waiting for your doctor’s appointment… Waiting is what we do while we’re not doing anything else. It’s how we fill up our time when there’s no other option.

But if you’ve ever wondered how God created us with such an innate desire for things, why does He make us wait so long for them? Why does He ask us to trust Him when it feels like everything is crumbling around us? And how can we learn from His example of patience in the midst of our own uncertainties?

To the Christian throughout the world, the Bible is the perfect map and chart.

You may safely and confidently navigate all the mazes of this world with God’s Word in your hands and mind. The true and narrow path is so boldly outlined that even a runner can read it. A traveler, even a fool, can safely navigate it (Isaiah 35:8) because it is clearly marked with God’s laws, even though the rest of the world can’t see them. The Spirit of Truth, who is unseen, guides us and reassures us when we are unsure of what to do, saying “This is the way, walk ye in it” (Isaiah 30:21). As a result, you can continue on your journey to the city of God with peace of mind as you rely on the Bible as “a lamp to your feet, and a light unto your path” (Psalm 119:105), a route that no one knows save He who leads you.

 The path brightens as you travel over mountains and through valleys, eventually leading to the ideal day. That’s what the wise say (Proverbs 4:18). If we pay attention and steer our rickety schooner by God’s Word, we will reach the promised land of eternal peace and rest without hitting any snags along the way. But if we are not careful and arrogant and rely on our own conceits, we will sink our faith. A young lieutenant in the English navy recently reported a previously unknown and potentially hazardous rock in the Mediterranean to the admiralty. The directive to include it on all charts was sent via telegraph to every station. 

The first vessel to pass over the spot was captained by an elderly man who, upon seeing the fresh warning on his map, was curious as to who had first reported the rock. When told this, he said, “There is no such rock there.” Twenty years of sailing this sea has left me without evidence of such a rock. Then, full of self-importance, he ordered his sailing-master to take the ship straight over the target. The brave ship sailed straight through the perilous area. The ship crashed with terrible force, taking the lives of everyone aboard. Many a Christian has gone down in flames due to arrogance or ignoring his infallible compass. We pray that the Holy Spirit would prompt us to carefully examine the course laid out for us by God.
