TIME TO WAIT
We often get too anxious for something to happen. We try to force it. We want to move ahead. We want to move on. But there are times we need to wait. We wait for God’s time for us to move ahead and not our own time. God tell us to wait for His lead. God tells us that things will happen in His time. While we are waiting, we can pray. We can read His word. While we are waiting, we can continue to learn from Him and be ready when He does lead us to take action.
Psalm 62:5 “Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know that sometimes we think we are ready to move ahead with something when the reality is that You are not ready for us to move ahead. We know You have the answers and You know what is best. Help us to know there is a time to wait. To wait for Your call. To wait for Your direction. To wait for Your lead. Help us to take time to wait for Your direction. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
