When you’re waiting for God to move or answer a prayer, how do you stay faithful? Waiting is part of life, and most good things in life take time. But it can be hard to stay patient and to keep believing when you don’t see answers coming right away. These Scriptures will help us learn to be spiritually strong while waiting.
