Isaiah 30:18

Been spending some devotional time this week on this one verse. It is so intriguing...God's graciousness to us and his own self-exaltation are linked. God is most gracious to us when He exalts Himself ( I think the unstated logic is that that is the best thing for us...God, so when He puts forth Himself, it is graciousness to us). What a passage...but what intrigued me first was that the text says he "waits" to be gracious...it's on His mind...it's in His plan...have you considered this friend? God is waiting to be gracious to those who are called according to His purpose...

In need of the graciousness of God this week...perhaps the Lord is waiting to be gracious to you as you wait on Him...
