We apologize for the delay, the captains voice boomed as our plane sat, waiting on the runway for a very, very delayed take-off. Does the person in the control tower realize how many appointments are disrupted, not to mention the precious jet fuel wasted?
Should God also apologize for putting us on idle and making us wait? For Moses, it was the most robust, productive time of his life; God made him wait, accomplishing nothing significant in the wilderness before God called on him.
(Moses) fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons. After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai. When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to look more closely, he heard the Lords voice. (Acts 7:29-31 NIV)
Is God giving me the same silent treatment? Should He apologize for the maturing and growing process I desperately need?
