Trust God and Wait - September 7, 2023

God has promised to give us all that we need. All we need to do is wait on God. But his timing is out of sync with ours, so we cut corners. We cheat on exams, on taxes. We deceive with lies, exaggerations, and misstatements. We inflate facts, drop names, and work the system. A wrong shortcut, even one taken for the right reasons, always causes someone pain.

There are no shortcuts with God. He doesn’t need my help with his plans. What are you seeking? Needing? Wanting? God’s timing is always right. His plan is always best. His will never includes deception or manipulation. His strategy never destroys people or requires compromise.  He never badgers, battles, belittles, or bruises people. And if you are doing so, then you are not in God’s will. Trust him…and wait. God never gives up on you.
