It is a great morning! I don't know about you but sometimes I get on edge when the Lord will not give me the details or even the message I need to give until the last minute (well at least last minute to me).
I would always hope to have all the details months before and the message 2 weeks before but noooo I got to be at the edge of the cliff before it all comes together. We live such a dramatic life in our own minds LOL. There is no rushing God. Yes it would be nice to have details well in advance, to have your whole message written out 2 weeks before time, to know if you should do this or that by this date and to have the details of our life figured out by this date (we need the job by this day so we can still pay our bills on time, I need to have a baby before I am this age, I need to get married before________, this business needs to take off by_________, etc). You know why?
Oh the drama we live! If we are in this thing with the Lord we must be reminded that not everything will go as we planned, we cannot stay in our comfort bubble all the time and we are not our own, we belong to Him and HE (the Lord) is in control.
I challenge you today to be patient and find joy in the waiting knowing that it’s not our Father’s desire to bring drama to our lives but it is His desire to have us produce fruit that is good and lasting. Rest in grace trusting that the Lord’s timing is not last minute, is not chaotic but it is perfect in all ways. God bless you ladies and enjoy the rest of your day! NO RUSH…
James 1:4 - But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
