Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
In todays instant society it is difficult to learn to wait. That is good because it teaches patience and faith.
It is a little better for my generation and those preceding me because we grew up waiting a lot, that was just a part of life.
However, it is still difficult waiting when it is not day or weeks but years that we have to wait.
Jehovah is not only a giving God but a God of wisdom.
Many times when we respectfully ask of Him and He does not answer right away it is because we are not mature enough to receive the gift.
Would you give a motorcycle to an eight year old child (I have seen many idiot parents do so with disastrous results and then blame everyone but themselves for their own stupidity)? Why not? Because they are not mature enough to handle and care for it that is why.
Every time we take matters in our own hands and attempt to get what we ask for instead of waiting for Jehovah it ends in disaster.
“The trouble is that I’m in a hurry, but God isn’t.” — Phillips Brooks
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being so wise and faithful so as to bless me with Your blessings in the appropriate time and manner. Thank you that through this process You have taught me patience and faith in Your providence. May I be blessed to emulate this blessing of patience with all those that I encounter today. I praise You in the name of He who had super natural patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
