Starbucks. Drive thru. Double laned. Two windows. With someone taking payment with an ipad in the driveway. No wait.
Am I describing your dream?
The only thing better than Starbucks? Starbucks fast.
We want what we want. And we want it in a hurry.
The funny thing about God is that He isn’t moved by our timetable. His clock doesn’t move on our pace. And He could care less about our amped up sense of urgency.
We can only see what we can see. But God, He sees around the corner. What’s coming up. What would happen if we got what we THOUGHT we wanted right now.
Which a lot of times ends up with us ‘getting what we want” but not “wanting what we get”. Anyone who ever dated someone they thought was different than they turned out to be give my a loud AMEN! (I know I can’t hear you, so amen in the comments will suffice – lol).
We serve a God who is so big that He sees the end game, and is not next-play short sighted like us humans.
God would rather take little time now, than us fail in the long run. The problem with me and you is that we don’t like waiting. Waiting takes the “P” word. Patience.
But if a little time brings us to the right place. The PERFECT opportunity. The EXACT thing we have been praying for, isn’t it worth it.
Let’s buckle in friends. And trust God with His timing. His promises are a blessing and His mercy and grace are sure.
“But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” James 1:4 NKJV
