“I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.” (Psalm 143:5)
Lord, I miss the way we used to be. It’s my fault, I know. I haven’t had the patience to rest at your feet and meditate on your Word. I’ve been too impatient to wait on your will. I’ve gotten used to making things happen right now instead of waiting on you to guide my steps.
Bring me back to those days when I hungered for your plans. Give me the patience to linger in your presence. Pause my racing thoughts and self-imposed time limits. Thank you for being the only one who can truly take away my urge to do life by myself. Thank you for showing me that putting you first is what’s best for me.
Morning Motivation: “The best things in life come with a high price and a long wait. Your sacrifice and your patience are not in vein.”
Nothing can wear us down like waiting can. Waiting can weigh so heavy on our souls because we know that God is able, but when a God who is able doesn’t act immediately it frustrates our sensibilities. But believing God requires a patience that we all must work towards. For if we never grow our patience we will give up prematurely. This message is for all of us struggling to relate to God in the midst of the chaos that is our lives. Listen to this sermon a listen and be reminded that your adversity is paving the way for your elevation.
