Read: Romans 8:24
Study: Like we have been saying all week, waiting can be a good and holy thing. In this letter, Paul is addressing the concerns of the Romans. They are facing oppression and are worried that they cannot endure any longer. Paul is reminding them that waiting does not always diminish. Like a pregnant mother, waiting can be a good thing. Although waiting may be painful and uncomfortable, in the end we are gifted with the gift of life. Remember this when you feel like you cannot wait any longer.
Prayer: Waiting God, thank you for your gift of life. You have shown us time and time again that waiting in your name yields wonderful results. Help me to discern when to wait and when to act. In your name, Amen.
