“But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it” (Romans 8:25).
Waiting is hard and fear only hastens our impatience. The more afraid we are the harder it is to wait. While “perseverance” implies patience and “eagerly” impatience, the seeming contradiction of a patient impatience is but an eagerness for the unseen things that God is still accomplishing. Don’t be afraid. Just wait.
