He makes all things beautiful in its time.
In today’s world time is very limited. We find ourselves constantly looking at our watches as time speeds by. We always seem to be going somewhere or doing something, always in a rush and never finding enough time for the important things in life.We live in a generation where everything is quick and fast paced, the internet is fast, cars are fast, we can even put a meal in the microwave and be eating dinner 3 minutes later.
There isn’t any problem with the fast pace of this world, the only issue is that we expect the Lord to do things at the same pace as the world and therefore to wait patiently on the Lord can be impossible for us. Our impatience can lead us to make our own plans, our own decisions and guiding our own steps because we refuse to wait patiently for anything. May we hold onto the grace of the Lord, so that we may be patient and wait for Him to speak, wait for His plans for our lives to unfold even if it means waiting for weeks, months or even years. We can be assured that the Lord’s timing is always perfect.
Lord, help us to patiently seek you and wait for you to speak to us. May we hold on to Your grace when things are not going according to the timing we desire. Help us to be completely dependent on You!
