Psalm 5:3 – In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
Patience has not always been one of my strongest qualities. You might also feel that way. Like have you ever prayed for something and just couldn’t wait? So you start working on your own behalf.
It might have been a relationship, job, or even a nice pair of shoes. Then when you get that man, job, or even those shoes…you find something is just a little off. Maybe the man that you met two months ago is not the one standing in your living room today. This man is mean and doesn’t think highly of you. Then you get the job and it’s nothing like what was written out for the job description. My favorite is those shoes that you just bought with your rainy day money. Your feet really hurt, I mean bad, and now you have put a bunion on your toe.
My point is, sometimes God is nowhere in the mix. If we just wait and allow God to move. He would supersede anything that we could have imagined.
Dear God, I come to You today most humbly and graciously. Giving You all the praise and glory for all the many blessings I have received in my life. This week please cover me with the spirit of patience and allow me to share that with others. I know that You are working on my behalf.
