Billy Graham – Judgment And Love Of God

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.

Acts 3:19

Be Patient

Sometimes we wrestle with decisions, thinking through pros and cons and all the angles we can imagine. We may pray about our options but then go with the one that feels right to us. After the fact, when circumstances don’t go the way we expected, we realize we did not wait on the Lord. Yes, we asked for his guidance, but then we charged ahead and did what we wanted—not necessarily what he wanted.

If we learn from these missteps, we often become more patient the next time we seek God’s direction for our lives. Sometimes events are urgent and we have to act quickly. But most of the time, we would benefit from praying diligently and waiting patiently to see what our Father reveals in his time.

It’s not easy, and we naturally become impatient. But if we want to follow our Father’s plan for our lives and not go our own way, we must learn to wait.

Pray: “Father, I get in a hurry and have a hard time slowing down and waiting for your guidance. Please give me patience and the strength to endure those times when I must wait.”
