Seek and Wait On The Lord

The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks Him.  Lamentations 3:25

In this microwave society, we have developed a desire to have everything at the snap of a finger.  We want it how we want it, where we want it and when we want it.  Like the Burger King theme, we want to have it our way.  Many times our way is not God’s way.  We must learn to seek God’s desire for our life.  There are times when what we want, is not what God wants for us.  There are times that where we want to be is not where God wants us to be.  There are times when we want it now but God says wait.  It is not time.  Seek God’s guidance as you pray, as you meditate, and as you live.  Seek His direction and His will.  After you seek out His will, you must still wait on His time.  God’s timing is not our timing.  When you seek His will and wait on His timing, you will find that the saying is true, God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

One Response to “Seek and Wait On The Lord”
  1. Yes pastor,I totatly agree with this reading; because I struggle with wanting what I want when I want it. I’m learning how to pray and wait on the Lord, and believe that his will and my want are the same. And when I don’t recieve what I ask for I wonder if the answer is no. In the book of James it talks about an unstable man, I fall in that catagory quite often. My constant prayer is that I obtain the wisdom to know what God’s will is for me, and the courage to (be obedient)carry it (his will)out. I’m so grateful that God has placed me in a place(Mt. Vernon) where I can learn and grow. Again I thank God for all of you.
