Morning Prayer, Friday, October 18, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: IMPATIENT ME
Father God, waiting is definitely not my strong suit. My prayer is that you will help me to learn when and how to stand still at the appropriate time. Amen
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.." Proverbs 3:5-6
"When God asks you to wait, just do it!" As I pulled up to a light yesterday morning on my way to work, I saw several people cutting through the parking lot of a downtown business. A lot of times these businesses will put up signs that say “No thru traffic.” Too impatient to wait on the light, people disregard the signs and cut through anyway. It made me think about how impatient we are sometimes. God tells us to “Wait and trust me,” but because we want or need to get there quicker than right now, we skirt around Him to find a shorter route to our destination. Now here is the kicker. Sometimes when you get off-route, you encounter problems and situations. Remember when the Israelites decided to build the golden calf because Moses went up the mountain with God and stayed too long? As a result of their impatience and action, many of them never made it to the Promise Land. I am not sure what the penalty is when one of these businesses catch you driving through their parking lot as a shortcut to get to where you are going but in life, there are penalties some of which we bring upon ourselves when we try to skirt around God’s plan or His will for our life We have to stay the course. Trust the plan. Just because you didn't come up with it does not mean it is not a good place. Actually, anything that God comes up with is better than good.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
