I am having to pray, a lot lately, for me to be on God’s time table and not my own time table. How about you?
We want relationships to be healed, right now.
We want to be better wives, right now.
We want to be better moms, right now.
We want certain situations to be fixed, right now.
All in our timing. Me me me and now now now.
We cry to God in our pain, hurt, need and frustration to immediately swoop down and rescue us. However, we must remember that the process is just as important as the prize at the end. Through the process, God molds us and changes us to be who He intended us to be.
His timing is perfect.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
It’s painful and exhausting sometimes. This is a lifetime race and not a sprint. Don’t give up. We have to press in and press on. Clinging to God as we walk through life. God is working on things even when we don’t see it or feel it.
When we get in this “Right Now” mode. We should not let our feelings rule us, but we should stand on God’s promises. Read more about how our Feelings Are Not Facts.
What does He promise?
*He promises to never leave us. Deuteronomy 31:8
*He loves us more than we know. Zephaniah 3:17
*He comforts us. Psalm 147:3
*He has great plans for us. Jeremiah 29:11
*He is for us. Romans 8:31
*We do not have to fear. 2 Timothy 1:7
When we get frustrated, down, disappointed, and overwhelmed we need to be encouraged and remind ourselves that God has this figured out and everything will be OK as long as we cling to Him.
It is a heart issue.
