We've been conditioned to expect things to come quickly, when we ask for them, when we need them, according to our schedule and our needs.
As much as we'd like, God is not subject to our schedule and our demands.
His plan is first, His ways are higher. My pastor always says that pushing our way might get us what we want, but we can lose what we have, we can miss out on God's perfect plan because we couldn't WAIT on Him. We needed what we needed when we needed it. Period. And, now, we are not as happy as we thought we would be.
My direction this week is to WAIT on Him, to be courageous in the wait, not to be anxious of what my emotions might nag me about. I'm encouraged to be strengthened in my knowledge that He who has begun a good work in me is faithful to complete it. (Phil. 1:6)
So as life brings on its new challenges each and every day, I will not lose myself in fear and anxiety, and I will not allow my strength to be jeopardized, because I am WAITING ON THE LORD. I will trust in Him, He has never failed!
Praying for you right now that your week will be filled
with courage and strength as you wait on Him.
