We've all been doing a lot of waiting over the past few months. This season of COVID-19 has been such a challenge, hasn't it? My guess is that God has been stretching us all! But the truth is, waiting is an important part of walking with God. Have you ever wondered, "Why does God make us wait? and wait… and wait?" In a fast-paced society, we don't like waiting for anything. Drive-throughs and microwaves expedite dinner while texting and email afford instantaneous communication. Because we're conditioned to expect instant gratification, we're startled—even frustrated—when we have to wait. And perhaps we become spiritually frustrated, doubting our faith when we find ourselves waiting on God. Author Brad Baurain joins us for an important conversation this morning.
