Day 28

September 25th, 2014

Patience“I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry.” Psalm 40:1 (NKJV). Have you ever petitioned the Lord and expected a response from Him immediately? After all, we have seen many examples in the Bible and in our lives where the answer from the Lord came “immediately.” But, we also know that we must wait on the Lord. We cannot go on without Him. And, in our waiting, we must be patient. I realize that our time is not God’s time. What feels like an eternity to us is but a moment to God. In my waiting, I am not discouraged and I work while I’m waiting. I know that He heard my plea. In God’s time and in God’s way, my heart’s desires will be fulfilled. And therein lies my joy.
