PATIENCE // JULY 30, 2021
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
David's secret? He waited on God. David knew he could always depend on his help.
So often we get waiting wrong. Waiting isn't wondering or worrying about all that could go wrong. Often we think we're doing the right thing without realizing we're actually worrying, which leads to anxiety and then to losing heart.
If David could wait in the wilderness being hunted by assassins and still be in God's presence, how about you? How are you waiting? Do you need to have it your way, right away? As much as we dislike having to wait, waiting is the secret sauce! GOD things come to those who wait!
Today, spend time alone with God. Rest in assurance that regardless of the circumstances, details or difficulties you're facing, God assures you of his defense, protection, guidance and provision. As you wait on God, your strength will be renewed. Patient surrender leads to powerful strength!
