WAITING FOR GOD’S TIMING
No amount of worrying can make things happen, let alone make them happen the way we want. Still, our human nature, bent on trying, rises to the challenge. What’s the remedy for this all-too-common malady?
From his book “The Utmost for his Highest” Oswald Chambers wrote, “When God brings a time of waiting, and appears to be unresponsive; don’t fill it with busyness, just wait….If you have the slightest doubt, then God is not guiding.”
The story of Abraham and Sarah illustrates the futility of trying to make a divine promise come about in their own timing. Tired of waiting for son, Sarah took matters into her own hands. The result was disastrous. God’s timetable always delivers an Issac when the time is right.
Today’s reflection comes from my reading during devotional time this morning. It comes from a little book that blesses me often “Moments of Peace in the Presence of God.” I am reminded that God is in charge, and it is up to me to “be patient and wait” on God to make a move in all of my situations. This is difficult for us human-beings, as we want everything done in microwave time.
Today let us have patience and wait on God.
Have an optimal day as you wait!
