Why your patience is exhausted!
Why do we say we love God; he has blessed me and doing great things for me! In the same breath complain about what we need: I can’t wait to get a new car, I need a new job and make some more money, I need a new place to live, I need someone special in my life and the list goes on. We get so impatient that we start doing things on our own and not consult God.
If God asked you, “What have I done to you that you can’t wait on me?” How would you reply?
We’re so busy thinking about ourselves that we forget about God, we forget that he supplies our every need. It’s not about when we want something, but when God says it’s time for us to have it. Philippians 4:6 says “do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”We’ve complain so much that God will use the Mountains as witness! Micah 6:2
Have you ever wanted something and it was hard to obtain? You were so close to getting it but you could never get it, so, you came to the point you stopped wanting it. But, one day you get the something and you say, “Boy that was right on time!” See, that wasn’t your time that was God’s time. God has been extremely patient with us, has always lovingly guided us and given us every opportunity to be focused on Him.
We have to learn to be still, pray, and be focused on God. Psalms 46:10“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” When we are focused on God, he will take care of everything. How proper, then, for us to be still, reverently honor him and his power and majesty. What will it take to make time each day to be still and to exalt God?
This is a perfect time to renew your covenant (mutual agreement) with God. Remembering the first covenant that God made is the covenant of redemption (to rescue from trouble or sin). 2 Timothy 1:9-10 says…that God saved us not by works but by grace.
We have to trust God in all that we do…Proverbs 3:5-6, 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Remembering God’s past protection and help will allow you to see his present provision, which will lead to a Pathway to Spiritual Rebirth.
