THE WAITING ROOM IS PART OF DAILY LIFE! THE LESSON OF HABAKKUK... Part #2

DEALING WITH HUMAN PROBLEMS TAKE TIME!

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

1. Waiting and Patience -- the dirty words? ; 2. Habakkuk’s Waiting Room; 3. Danger of waiting and spiritual rust; 4. The five levels of waiting; 5. Waiting with Joy and gladness 6. Long waits and sudden answers; 7. TEPID WAITING; 8. Waiting with a fire in my bones!

TEXT:

Isa. 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall

renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings

as eagles; they shall run and not grow weary; they

shall walk and not faint.

Habakkuk 2:1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me

upon the tower, and will watch to see what he

will say unto me, and what i shall answer when I am

reproved.

2: And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the

vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may

run that readeth it.

3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but

at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it

tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it

will not tarry.

4: Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not

upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Habakkuk 3:17 -- 18 Although the fig tree shall not

blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the

labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall

yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the

fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:

18: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in

the God of my salvation.

MICROWAVE/COMPUTER AGE!!! ???

We live in a microwave society.

Seems the only people I know with a lot of patients

are doctors.

We have fast planes and fast cars, good roads, and

plenty of gas, yet we are always late?

We can get our oil changed in less than 15 minutes

Remember, the coal or wood cook stove, to build the

fire in the cook stove took 20 minutes, then to cook

the food was much longer? We raised our own food in

the garden and canned it for the winter?

We have instant coffee, but is it as good as perked?

We have instant mashed potatoes, but are they as

good as the peeled and cooked kind?

We have minute rice, instant pudding, lean pockets

from freezer to the table in 60 seconds.

Yet, we depend on fast food restaurants and eating

out.

Anyone remember the wringer washers and rinsing the

clothes in a big tub of water.

We have hot water, automatic washing machines,

clothes dryers, dish washers, vacuum sweepers that

clean the air, but yet it does not seem like we have

time to get anything done?

We wait in the doctor’s office. Our hospitals have

so many waiting rooms, that the rooms are

specialized.

There is an emergency room waiting area, with

security and cameras. There is surgery waiting

areas, out patient waiting areas. There are waiting

rooms where we wait for babies to be born, CCU

waiting areas, and many more.

We have fast acting pain pills and medicine.

You wait in line at Walmart, Kmart, and Sears. Seems

like I can get in the shortest line, and the other

lines move much quicker.

There is a waiting room where you buy your car? When

you pull into the garage, they often suggest you go

Thank you Pastor Jerry. I love to hear from people that have read my work. I love to write and to study. It is all worthless if I have no readers. May God bless and keep you near his heart. Arise...
