Good Morning my friends,
People want things and they want it now. Instant gratification is one of the many things that is destroying this country.. People buy things that they can’t afford because they are willing to pay interest and make payments. People wait on the microwave to cook their food and scream at it to hurry. People now eat instant oatmeal for breakfast while drinking instant coffee, they go through the drive-thru window to eat fast food for lunch and then they pick up food-to-go on their way home from work. We now have the 10 minute trainer for exercise because there’s no time to workout. To communicate we use instant message. We constantly want to upgrade to the latest & greatest tech toy that is faster than what we have now.
“But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.”(Micah 7:7)
We want instant gratification with God as well. We expect Him to answer our prayers for help for situations that our own decisions caused and we want them answered now and when we don’t get our way for some reason we blame Him. We then turn our back on Him or throw our hands in the air and stop praying as if He owes us a favor. God will teach you patience if you let Him.. He will show you how persistence and a willingness to wait for His direction can be a blessing in your life..
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
Wait patiently with God while He Blesses you.. Don’t rush into His Presence with time-consciousness gnawing at your mind because He dwells in timelessness: He is, He was, He will always be. Time is a protection for you because you’re frail. You can only handle twenty-four hour segments of life at a time. Time can be a tyrant, ticking away relentlessly in your mind. Learn to master time, or it will be your master. Though you are bound by time, seek to meet Him in timelessness. As you focus on His Presence, the demands of time and tasks will diminish. He will bless you. Let God’s Face shine upon you graciously which in turn will give you Peace.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU… Be patient and persistent in prayer and wait for His direction and Peace.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC day… Blessing & much love…
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
