I woke up this morning with this song in my head
That’s What Faith Can Do…
There are many mornings I awake with the words of a song running through my head. I just lay and ask God what He wants of me that day? Well, on this day, He wanted me to begin working on our blog. One of those things that I need to be in the correct mindset to accomplish. Then, as I usually do not long after I get up is read my email. I subscribe to “In Touch Ministries” daily email devotion, which I always look forward to starting my day. I just wanted to share with you what was waiting for me in this email that was just what I needed to inspire me to begin what God put on my heart for the day.
God Acts On Our Behalf
We have become so accustomed to this hurried world that we've begun to demand speed in our spiritual life too. However, God "acts on behalf of those who wait for him" (Isa. 64:4 niv). Wise believers endure until the fruits of His labor appear.
In this devotion, we'll look at three reasons believers are called upon to wait. First, God may be preparing us to receive His blessings. Perhaps we need new skills or greater maturity. Sometimes people require fresh spiritual insight before their hands are ready to hold what their hearts desire. For example, David waited years to sit on his appointed throne. But when he did, he was a wise, strong, and battle-tested king.
Second, the Father is often teaching His children to have confidence in Him. How would believers ever learn faith if God immediately fulfilled their every request? In my own life, the Lord has often said two words: "Trust Me." And He has never been late to meet my needs. No matter how we justify rushing ahead of God, doing so amounts to saying, "I don't trust You."
Finally, the Lord will at times withhold blessing to protect us from harm we can't see. We may never find out what caused the delay. But be assured that God examines the object of our desire closely before placing it in our hands.
Waiting is rarely easy, particularly in this instant-everything world. But rushing ahead of the Lord short-circuits His plan. Believers who do are left unsatisfied, and they often must live with terrible consequences. Be patient while the Lord works out details. His best is on the way.
And so, I began...
You can take a look at our "About Us" page and see what faith, trust, patience and obedience were just a few things God needed to show us and how this part of our journey in our life began to develop as we saw God carrying out His Plan for us...
