When you are waiting for God to do something big in your life, there are things you can do while you wait. Some of these things will actually prepare you to receive and enjoy the blessing better! Just the other day I received a new illustration about this so I could understand it better.
I was waiting for supper to be done cooking when I remembered I should set the table. As I was setting the table I realized this was like a metaphor. Everything is still in the oven or on the stove, but there are things to do while you wait that actually prepare you for eating the food. Set the table, do some of the dishes that are already sitting there, get serving utensils out and ready, pour drinks. Then you’ll be ready to enjoy your supper and you’re ready without a scramble.
So while you’re waiting for that roast in God’s oven, go set the table. Your plate will be all ready for your delicious blessings!
