Guard Your Heart During the Waiting

As one who’s been doing a lot of waiting lately, I found this post from Paul Tripp particularly helpful. He gives five signs that waiting has weakened your faith:

  1. Giving way to doubt.
  2. Giving way to anger.
  3. Giving way to discouragement.
  4. Giving way to envy.
  5. Giving way to inactivity.

All five points (in one post) are worth a read; plus, Tripp gives the God-centered antidote to each. He also makes a subtle, solid argument against prosperity theology.
