Isn't it strange how the beginning of the speaking of love in 1 Corinthians 13 is "Love is patient."? (v. 4)
Isn't it strange how Moses waited for 6 days in the glory cloud before God even spoke? (Exodus 24:16)
Isn't it strange how God gave instruction to build the Ark of the Covenant before He gave the Covenant? (Exodus 25:16)
No it's not. Because God knew what He was doing and what He is doing and what He will always do.
The carving of the inside creates the beauty of the out;
with hands lifted high and mouths we will shout.
In patience we will wait, knowing it's Your call
to be still and know You, in the midst of it all.
Waiting in glory, like Moses, we desire
for You come in this and rain down with fire.
In this time of wait, make the Ark in my heart
prepare in me the place, before You throw the dart.
Ready and in waiting, we stand up tall and know
You are the Rock and the arrow to throw.
The people entrusted to us we will hold
keeping eyes on the hearts that You wish to mold
for it's easy to keep in sorrow and in pity
but we know that You want to move in this city
so amongst this time of patience that's occurring in us
we know that You have greater when we chose to trust.
