I don't think God intended us to just sit there and passively wait, but instead actively pursue Him through the times of waiting. We can still serve Him whole heartedly while we wait.

"Possessions and money have the most potential to chain us to this world - to rob us of our ability to be aliens and strangers in this world. And because of its power money can easily make individual Christians become like that church that sold the oil and kept all the money for themselves.

It’s members focused only on their own needs… in their own wants. Not on God." Matthew 25:31-46
