"I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry." --Psalm 40:1
Waiting--the Key to Joy, Peace, and Abundance
No one likes to wait. Our irritation level rises in checkout lines, train stations, restaurants, and doctors' offices. We don't have time to waste. But Scripture constantly speaks of waiting: "Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:31).
The good news is that waiting on God is much more than watching the clock. Waiting plays a vital role in our spiritual formation as we draw closer to the Lord and respond to His leading. Challenging believers to rediscover this lost spiritual discipline, pastor and Bible professor David Timms reveals the hidden treasures of waiting on God--the peace and joy of being with Him.
The heroes of the faith all waited on God. And just like Abraham, Moses, and David, you'll find that your best moments arise from God's timing, not your own. Every covenant God made came at the end of a season of waiting. God's rewards wait for you when you learn to practice Sacred Waiting.

This book pushed (and continues to push) me into a deeper, more intimate contact with Christ. It reminds me to die daily and humbly "yield every moment" to Christ by practicing His Presence: listening to, responding to, and trusting Him. Dr. Timms clarifies that this "sacred" waiting is not sitting around and waiting for something to happen, but having constant communication with the Lord and waiting ON Him much like a waiter (server) caters to a table. This book will definitely stretch you in ways that are necessary for a more intimate relationship with God.
If you are desperately waiting for something-a job, spouse, financial relief-order this book and learn about the benefits of waiting on God to fulfill all the desires of your heart according to His perfect timing. You will learn that the benefits of sacred waiting do not come when you recieve what you asked for but come during the period of your waiting.
