Scripture:  Acts 2: 1 NIV When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.

Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

Observation:    They had been told to go into the entire world.  Then they had been told to wait—to wait in Jerusalem until they received what was promised. (Acts 1:4)  But when the right time arrived, the promise was given suddenly.  I am reminded of Joseph who “waited” in prison for over two years, yet when Pharaoh had the dream, suddenly, within a day, Joseph was made 2nd in charge of all Egypt!   (Genesis 14:14 & 40)                 

Application:   Yesterday the Lord spoke to me about the importance of waiting, today I hear Him telling me that when the time is right, he often moves suddenly.   Waiting on Him is never a waste of time.  Moving ahead of Him is the real waste of time.  When He moves “suddenly” it makes the waiting worthwhile!    “My waiting” PLUS “His suddenly” is always quicker than “my running ahead on my own.” 

Prayer:   Lord, I trust your leading and your timing.  I am certain that you know what is best.     Amen
