Waiting on God, pt. 1 - What now, O Lord? | Abraham to the Fall
Waiting. I’m not good at it. Are you?
The weeks leading to Christmas is traditionally called Advent.
Advent is a season of waiting. The heart of that waiting is set to music in the Christmas classic:
Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Waiting is part of walking by faith. Here's two things we learn as we ponder the story of Abraham and Israel:
1. God takes His time. He sovereignly goes at a long, slow pace.
2. Waiting on God includes moments of "what now?!"
In this episode we trace the story of God's promise to Abraham through it's initial fulfillment to its seeming failure when Jerusalem and the temple are destroyed and God's people are carried away into exile.
