To Wait For the Lord

The Common Rule

To wait for the Lord means that there is a hope that cannot be satisfied in this moment. To wait for the Lord means that there is a longing that cannot be helped in this world. If you feel like something is missing — it’s because it is. This is why we must guard our hopes. We must make sure not to fill that God-shaped hole in our hearts with politics, sex, money, success, social media attention, or anything else. Remember that your restlessness has meaning. It teaches you about the King that is coming. Guard that as a holy discontentment. And don’t let something lesser trick you into temporary relief. You were meant to stay up the night watching for the King.
