Today’s thought – Wait Patiently

Good Morning

Psalms 37:7
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him

Have you prayed and prayed and waited and waited,
and still there is no manifestation?

Are you tired of seeing nothing move?
Are you just at the point of giving it all up?
Perhaps you have not waited in the right way?
This would take you out of the right place—
the place where He can meet you.

“With patience wait” (Rom. 8:25).
Patience takes away worry.
He said He would come,
and His promise is equal to His presence.
Patience takes away your weeping.
Why feel sad and despondent?
He knows your need better than you do,
and His purpose in waiting is to bring more glory out of it all.
Patience takes away self-works.
The work He desires is that you “believe” (John 6:29),
and when you believe, you may then know that all is well.
Patience takes away all want.
Your desire for the thing you wish is perhaps stronger
than your desire for the will of God to be fulfilled in its arrival.

Patience takes away all weakening.
Instead of having the delaying time,
a time of letting go,
know that God is getting a larger supply ready
and must get you ready too.
Patience takes away all wobbling.
“Make me stand upon my standing” (Daniel 8:18, margin).
God’s foundations are steady;
and when His patience is within,
we are steady while we wait.
Patience gives worship.
A praiseful patience sometimes “long-suffering with joyfulness” (Col. 1:11)
is the best part of it all.
“Let (all these phases of) patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4),
while you wait, and you will find great enrichment.
–C. H. P.

Hold steady when the fires burn,
When inner lessons come to learn,
And from this path there seems no turn
“Let patience have her perfect work.”

Praiseful patience . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
