Had they not waited, all their efforts would have been in vein simply because they would have been acting in their own strength and not that of the Holy Spirit. But they obeyed and waited. Yet so many times when God tells us to wait, we aimlessly forge ahead, determined to have things our way. In Luke 24:52-53 ESV, we are told that while they waited, "they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple blessing God."
We would do good to learn from the apostles if we wait joyfully and continually praising God. Then we will have His peace as we wait expecting the Holy Spirit to lead and direct our path. His promises ALWAYS come to pass. He never fails.
Wait on the Holy Spirit.
Be blessed my family and friends. Praying continually that the Lord will pour out His complete favor and blessings upon you as you continue to draw closer to Him.
Love you all!
